You can't remember your wife's birthday,your anniversary, but you know your jeeps;
The bore/stroke horse power, torque of the engine, along with every other Jeep engine.
The part #s for 99% of the parts you replaced, both Napa and from your Jeep parts supplier!
"our anniversary? Whatta think I dumb! It was spring, Ahhhh, may 26 1991?
Oh it way, Sept 12, 1989. I knew that"!
When you get caught in a flash flood with rushing water half way up your windsheild. when the water goes back down all you have to do is remove the plugs and crank the engine to pump the water out. Replace the plugs and drive home.
When the first question your buddies ask is:
1. How's the Jeep doing?
2. Did someone steal this thing and trash it?
3. Did rust come factory on this thing, or did you install it yourself?
4. How did you get invited to the (your autoparts store here) employee picknick? You don't even work there.
You need a little more A/C, so you just stomp on the floor board a couple of times.
You have to wear goggles to keep little pieces of rust from getting in your eyes.
You refuse to spend money on a stereo, because you think the sound of your Jeep's tires is music to your ears.
You need a two way radio and a head set to talk to your passenger.
If you can't be handsome, you'd better be handy.

When your most memorable stories starts off like, "Oh man, once was out driving my Jeep and......"
When you have a hunk of metal, plastic, and rubber that you swear is alive and only doing this or that just to get you upset, and you are promissing it, "If you just get me home this one more time, I promise you I'll fix you right this time.'
When you make a hard right going ~15mph and your door flies open.. Thank you AMC for limiting straps!
I had just purchased my jeep and as I was leaving his driveway turning right (driving it for the first time EVER) the door did that and it did not have that strap--thus nearly missing oncoming traffic and swinging out to hit the huge tire, which grabbed the door and pushed it almost completely off of the hinges and into traffic.
What a great first impression
This was followed shortly by my realization that it was going to steer where it wanted to, and that I had no brakes.
And that's how I knew that it was really meant to be my first car.
