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!

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.

You know you drive a CJ when none of the 4 door jeeps wave at you.

You win the lottery, but instead of going to the jeep dealer you just request a new quadratec catalog

When you only wear hats with a chin strap, so they will stay on and keep your bald head from getting sun burned.

If you can't be handsome, you'd better be handy.

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.'

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.
