people with pin latches (not wedge latches) tend to catch their belt loops on the pin protruding from the door frame when getting into/out of the jeep

I have wedge latches so I'll never have to worry about that, but wedge latches don't keep the door from slamming up and down over big bumps and frame twisting.

That's a good one! I can't tell you how many jeans I went through with busted belt loops.

This happened to me while I was saving up for my Howell TBI. Got and installed everything else I needed at the time.

When the kids you are wheeling with can't believe your jeep is older than them, or that the old jeep and older driver can keep up

I guess I've never seen the pin style doors. I got the wedge kid on my cj5 so I guess that leads me to one ....


You know you drive a cj when u emphasize the fact of buckleing up to ur friends. And tell them not to lean on the doors.

You know you drive a cj when u hit a bump the passenger door flies open and you lean over to close it and end up in the other lane.

Yes it happens quite a bit

When after a day of wheeling you have a tender left elbow from crashing it into the door striker. At least on a cj5 that is

You just spent the last week rebuilding your motor because of the leaking rear main seal, loose timing chain, put new oil pump in and new gaskets. It's purring like a kitten running great and all of a sudden there is smoke from the floor board on the passenger side. It was the gasket thingy from the fresh air duct that got into the fan. The good news is the fan still works. BUT now I think I get to find the power steering leak. Only in a CJ.
