When your registration does not match your insurance.

Insurance is for a Jeep CJ-5
Registration is for an Make: American Motors Model: Jeep (I don't understand, but that's what the VIN pulled up)

Or they let you go home early to fix your jeep, so you can make it to work the next day.

How about when you see a budy you havnt seen in over a year and he asks if you got your jeep done yet and the answer is the same as before "nope".

You know you own a CJ when....

...when your lights go out a quick punch to the dashboard makes them come back on.
...you thank the inventor of seat belts for keeping you in that beast.
...you spend more time on this forum trying to figure out how to fix something than actually working at work.
...you buy more expensive stuff for your Jeep than your girlfriend. (I tell her I make 20K less than I do so she wont notice!!!)

...when you're on a business trip and what used to be reserved for looking at naughty stuff on the internet turns into trying to find parts...a CJ saving one soul at a time.

When your window zippers are shot so you zippy tie them together...
When you get used to driving with no brakes(for 5 years) and when you do get all new brakes you still dont use them..
When your Jeep is down you're in a perpetual bad mood(for months, years?).
