You pour your cold coffee out one of the many man made or rusted out holes through out the body.
You glove box, looks like a small parts ben of a auto store with coils, points, assorted nuts and bolts, (a few stripped but they may repair themselves if we keep them long enough), a few bulbs that may work, a pack of fuses, and a roll of electrical tape.
Under seat is more parts, a fuel pump that is bad, but just maybe....... a fan belt that's too big, (or small), a pack of zip ties, a 1/2 empty bottle of P.S. fluid, (why is THAT here, I don;t even have P.S. in this jeep)?
It's more than a jeep, it's an adventure.
You know you've got a "keeper" jeep when you you and your wife are going out and you say, "we'll take the jeep", and she starts to laugh and walks away!
When you know from experience that the best heater is to remove the shifter tunnel floor cover during winter - the heat radiating up from the catyltic converter is far better than the OEM heater ever was.
Amen to that! The first time I drove my CJ home in the middle of the summer at night, I kept feeling hot air near my foot. While driving, I felt around and determined that there was a hole in the transmission shifter boot with hot air flowing out of it. One of the first things I replaced was the boot, but I can always feel heat coming through the sheetmetal when I drive for more than about 5 minutes.

when your mailbox is full of Jeep parts & accessories catalogs
when JC Whitney, Morris, 4wd, Quadretec & several local salvage yards send you birthday & Christmas cards
when you remember how each ding, break & scratch got on your CJ & enjoy the memories of it
when someone mentions "Going Topless" & you think of a Jeep first
