I used the dishwasher too. It cleaned my carb up real nice. My wife reacted the same way, but my reply was " I payed for it and I'll use it". She did not like that AT ALL!!!=RARECJ8
Our stove was on the list to get changed during a kitchen remodel. I planned on moving it to the barn, but not enough power out there since it's solar w/battery bank. SOoo...I used it w/my new powder-coating kit. She got really PO'd when I asked "Since you hit the ceiling over this, how about dusting the fan while you're up there"!
I think the couch actually laughs at me when it see's me coming w/sheets!

When this is how you dress so that you can drive to work during the cold winter days. Insulated coveralls, beanie cap, thick fleece half mask, turtleneck undershirt, gloves, and a pair of base layers. Who needs to spend hundreds on a top and doors when you have hunting gear that only gets used a few times a year for hunting season, rest of the time its to drive to work, lol. Notice the blue uniform shirt underneath? lol And yes that was me this morning and has been me on other occasions. I stashed my coat between the seats so that I could stay warm while working in the shop on other vehicles.

You know you drive a CJ when every 4WD shift pattern on EVERY car/truck is different than yours. Perfection.

This thread is funny, Just found it and started reading and here is one that no one hit yet...

When it's sub-freezing outside with snow/sleet/ice is in the forecast and your other vehicle is not a 4x4 so your forced to choose which is more important, HEAT or having 4WD!

I have lots of blowing, just happens to be cold. Think I found the problem being the flap on the passenger side under the cowl is not closing and is allowing cold air to be drawn in from outside unrestricted. Trying to figure out now of the rod that goes thru it is stripped.

When you're driving with a bikini top and no doors, and a guy towing an empty trailer passes by you doing 45-50, you hear the trailer rattle, but instantly your ears perk up because you are positive something just fell off your Jeep....

Ha! Been there. I immediately start checking things. Clutch still working, brakes still working, any NEW wobble/vibration, any NEW engine noise and then, if you don't go back and look to see if you can find what fell off, every time I start working on something and a piece is missing I think "I'll bet that is what it was!

When you know just the perfect angle to position the fuel nozzle at the gas station.

What's worse is when you and the trailer hit a rough patch if road at the same time! Know you're second guessing yourself...was that the trailer, or my Jeep? Had to have been the trailer...I'm sure of it.....right?

Sent from some place where I should probably be working, but I'm outside smoking instead...

You watch re-runs of the Dukes of Hazard and root for Daisy's CJ7 Golden Eagle Jeep "Dixie" as much as you do for the General Lee. Not to mention noticing how things were installed on Dixie in some scenes.

BTW: If your a fan the Dukes are now playing on CMT every afternoon digitally restored and in Widescreen HD for the first time ever, sounds like they may have restored the audio track to Dolby 5.1 Stereo as well (or at least simulated it).

I haven't seen these shows in years and forgot what good wholesome fun they was. A friend says his son and his friends have started watching it and love it, first time they have ever seen it.

When you pause the tv much, to everyone's displeasure, every time you think you see a jeep so you can get a good look at it. Boy! my wife and kids hate when I do that.....
