When you're in the Army and you call in to tell them you'll be running late because your CJ wouldn't crank, and the Battalion leadership simply say "Oh, Ok." then once you do get in to work, it dies about 2 miles down the road and have to walk the rest of the way to tell them it died and that you need a tow up to the office so you can work on it in the parking lot.
Or they let you go home early to fix your jeep, so you can make it to work the next day.
...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 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?).
