When I am having a bad day like that. I just jump into my CJ7 and drive it. It does not matter where, sometimes just a run to the coast. Sometimes just a good hour out and an hour back does the trick. Driving my little CJ always puts a smile on my face.

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.

I used to ride a Kawasaki road bike to work, 2 others rode Harley's. One morning when I came out to leave from work someone put a pile of rice under the bike.

When you render the jeep wave to JK an JKU's and they have to think for a second about what you are driving because they dont understand originality.

When you see a weekly therapist who you pay to help you work through stress from your long distance relationship, stress from your job...stress from your anxiety disorder..and he asks you "What's on your mind this week?"...and one day you tell him - "I can't be sure...but I THINK my cam is walking a little. I'm also kicking myself for not getting MSD gears."

When you haven't been able to get "out there" lately, but just driving the Jeep to work makes you feel like you got out a little.

...... When you park your beater work car honda in the garage next to her ( just one time).... A little honda that hasnt had anything wrong for 135k miles!).... And somehow your jeep causes the honda to crap the bed on the way to work the next morning.


Guess i made the old girl jealous. Damn she's spiteful.

When you drive 40 miles out of your way to visit another forum member (cj5russ) to see how his build is going and give/get ideas knowing its 4:30Pm and rush hour in Atlanta is soon coming and it takes you almost a total of 3 hours to return home but either way ended up being worth it.

Great progress Russ, keep up the good work and we shall meet again.

Yep. Returning from our honeymoon cruise we took the extra hour off course to stop over to visit Skerr and his family and check out his projects for a couple hours. Was a great time for only a couple hours!

You need safety glasses on to look under it because of falling rust flakes like a rain storm

You can't use your mirrors because they vibrate to much even at a stoplight.
