When you always shift into reverse to park and carry a split log for a wheel chock.

. . . . When you believe you are the envy of all other Jeep owners

. . . . When your Jeep just looks better than anyone elses

. . . . When it says made by Jeep under the hood

. . . . When it's a Jeep not a Chrysler

...when you're idea of a good day is when nothing breaks down on your Jeep...

...when your right calf muscle is slightly larger than your left calf muscle from the lack of power brakes... matter where you go, you always put gas in her since the gauge doesn't work... secretly hate your CJ because it attracts more women than you can...

Present: 96 XJ ~Black~ , 75 CJ-5 ~Blue~
Past: 95 YJ ~Bright Mango~ , 96 XJ ~White~, 72 CJ-5 ~Baby Blue~

When Your Kids friends have been by over and over to here your rolling Chasie with rebuilt motor run

When you have used 3 years of your Tax Returns to get the next big step done ( body this year )

When you dust the Rolling chasie off every month so you can see your statue in the garage Shine

When most of your parts are bought on E-bay or 4wd hardware

When you use your Engine Block as a Computer bench to bid on some thing on E-bay you might be a Redneck

Exactly how my childhood went.'ve thought about buying a new engine for your truck and putting the old one in the jeep.

...a trip to the gas station down the road with your buddy feels like an off road adventure.
