when you hear a new strange noise from under the hood,wonder if the engine will quit, and if you will be left stranded. Several minutes later it stops, you question why, wonder if the engine will quit, and if you will be left stranded.

when you weld parts together instead of screwing them just so they will finally not come loose knowing full well you will have to cut them apart in the future to make other repairs.

when you're afraid to hit bumps, not because of loosing parts, but because the new quick catching seat belts pull a death-grip bear hug on you and you can't breath.

when you love to hear that someone needs a couple of things from the store and volunteer to go because it's an excuse to drive the CJ.

She finally started wearing a ball cap

You know you drive a CJ when you can't manage to stay offroad for a whole tank of gas to calculate you mileage

Cheers!

You know you drive a cj when you know just where to touch the bikini top to get the water off it with out getting wet. And soaking the passenger in the process or ur little kid in the back seat.

When you are searching through a U-Pull It and start cursing because all the vehicles are "too damn new"

Building a Jeep is like playing golf, every now and then you get a good shot that makes you believe, hey I can do this!

Boy is that a true statement!!!

Here is one that happens to me constantly;

When you're driving topless and you start to smell coolant or burning oil. Wondering if it is really you but come to find out it's that POS next to you at the light.

SO true - last weekend it was the squealing belt, but turned out it belonged to the beater Geo that had been next to me for several blocks.

When you have to keep track of your mileage, because the fuel gauge quit working...again.

BTW, I checked my mileage today and get a whopping 7.7 mpg!! I think it's actually around 10 mpg, because I need to change out my speedo gear. One day.

I occasionally drive past a refinery, and some days certain smells stand out more than others (like asphalt, motor oil, etc.) so as I drive past I smell oil, and start looking at my gauges and in the mirrors for smoke.. then I realize I just passed the refinery.

Did he say it sarcastically, otherwise why would you say that? To each their own. Don't be a tool and give the rest of us a bad name. Just say thanks knowing he'd probably rather be driving your ride.

NEW to the Forum, so I have been catchin' up on these and realizing it's not just me!

OK, so You know you drive/own a CJ when a fell CJer will pay postage and send you parts without expecting anything in return; simply because he or she knows what it feels like to get one back on the road! Thanks to my new buddy Sam (OrangeCJ7)!!!

WWJD?.....A Jeep!

CJ - The only one that means something! The rest is just alphabet soup.
