Your not driving it enough, otherwise they would not be able to find it to build the nest.

Had an agreement with a mouse years ago. I'd start the Jeep and he'd run to the woodshed before I took off. He climb back in when I parked it. Found his nest sometime later under the charcoal canister.

You spend over $10,000 more buying/recreating the same model you owned 20 yrs ago (and STILL regret selling) than what you sold that one for back then.

When you carry a tape measure with you almost everywhere so you can check to see if something can be made to fit.

How did you attach yours to the tub?

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!

When you explain to someone that it is not an "old wrangler," but that wranglers are a "new version of the CJ - the CJ came FIRST."

What are these bolt on parts you speak of? Must be some kind of new fad.

I'm not really sure. It seems like I've heard tale of them, and maybe read something about them in a book.
