A reagan sticker would be great find. I might toss a "vote utilitarian" sticker under the hood. (see sig

You know you drive a cj when you have a mosquito problem from all the standing water in old tires around the garage. Santa, need DDT.

When your CJ body and gas tank are rusted out so badly that the gas tank won't hold fuel anymore, and you've "fixed" that problem with a red plastic five gallon can placed discreetly on the floorboard of the passenger side with an IV tube running from it to the carb - and you still have the guts to ask $2500 for it because you REALLY need to sell it!

Not me - but a guy I talked to on the side of the road trying to sell his Jeep!

When you find yourself in shape again after you realize your jeep has no power steering or brakes

When you have to explain to your father-in-law about why you just happen to have another starter in the barn. ( See earlier post ). And then you go on about the spare engines, spare carbs, spare tranny, couple set of spare axles.... all set ad ready to install.

Fortunately your wife cousin knows what it's all about and isnt amazed and actually has a few parts that might fit the jeep. For spares, you know, you're gonna need them one day. Usually the day after you sold or got rid of it...

You give the guy at the parts store the part numbers for what you need rather than have him look it up by Make, Model and Year.

How about when you're waxing it and you can see the inside through the holes in the outside....and you still wax it anyway.

someone says "Nice Wrangler" and you get offended.
When you try to explain what kind of Jeep you have and the person doesn't know what a CJ is. So with defeat in your voice, you say Wrangler and the confused person all of a sudden knows what you are talking about.

You know you drive a CJ when you have to go through the stages.

First, you wanted a set of lego's... you then graduated to lincoln logs... then the erector set... you then moved onto models, RC cars, and then finally, the pinnacle of the build it yourself, a CJ...

Some experiences may differ, but I know we all played with something mentioned above

You know when you've HONESTLY earned the Right to say
A JEEP IS BUILT NOT BOUGHT!!!!!!!!!!

when there is more ""custom"" and ""handmade"" than factory on your rig.

When you hop in 'er in the morning and realize you forgot your coffee. So you pull the key directly out of the ignition (with it still running) and unlock the front door and get your joe.

My wife thinks it's soooo funny when my key falls out of the ignition accidentally. I think it's just "character"!!

I had this happen on my old plow jeep and it fell right through the holes in floor and never found it until the next spring. Heck, that jeep didn't need a key to start it anyway.
