You look under your Jeep as you walk up to it every time just to make sure you still only have a few "small leaks."

But I will add, you hate fixing the other vehicals you own (wife's van & my pick up) but love "Jeep time" so much you start another build.

...when you walk into the parts store and the guy behind the counter sighs and says what do you need to fix now and is shocked when you need to get parts for another car

...you keep and chain or strap in the back to bum a tow home when she strands you somewhere
