Like when you go to the parts store. You say AMC or Jeep. They say which one.

Me: Well its a Jeep made by AMC with AMC parts.
Incompetence: Well you gotta tell me.
Me: Well AMC then.
Incompetence: Nope
Me: Then try Jeep
Incompetence: What was the model again.
Me: (Sigh) 1978 Jeep CJ5 with a 304 V8.
Incompetence: Ok,

I buy it and leave. It happened again with getting a pinion bearing. First they dont make one. Then he tells me the diff takes 6 quarts of 10w30. I get mad when he gives me an outer race instead of the bearing, and leave. I did put my stuff away though and was calm about it.

When you go to college and instead of sending you pictures of your family or your dog, you get pictures of your Jeep.

Bottomline: my CJ wouldn't pass an inspection... no CAT.


Im in nc and registered my 77 and took it to get it inspected and said u dont need one 3 yrs and going nc hasnt made me get one yet

find a worn 1/4x20 lock nut stuck between the grooves of your A/T and figure you scored a new part for the Heep!

This happened the other day...

I got pulled over by the po-po for a tail light out, and handed my insurance to him, and he went back to verify it, and came back asking if my jeep was a American motor corporation CJ-7, I was like yes...... its a CJ-7. Pretty funny when it happened, had to share.

Tell the officer to hang on.. go back and tap it and then look at him - "See, it's working!"

That has happened before, the whole tail light working again thing, this time it didnt happen :-\. O'well, its not in the city ordinance so I am taking my time on fixing it, has something to do with a ground problem or wiring harness.

When fixing your ride involves a ride to NAPA and an hour or two with a Hayne's manual while you're friend had to get a $200 diagnostic test to tell him he had to replace a $500 PCM board . True story.

when the people at the auto parts place say "see you in a while" instead of "have a nice day"

happened multiple times today.
