When you have to use bungee cords as door locks, keep a candle and a scaper for a defrost, and multiple blankets in the heep because the fan blows cold in the winter, and hot air in the summer....

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!

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.

You know you drive a CJ when you keep a running list of parts you need to replace.

I dont know if this one has been mentioned.

When you are too scared to fix minor problems in the event they reveal or cause major ones.

( Added a brake booster... Ended up with a frame off restoration..... just because I couldnt get the brakes to work... and they still dont. after replaceing EVERYTHING )

When you show up to work with "Styled" hair and people start joking your a pretty boy, but really it is motor oil and grease that got on your head while you were checking that insert (squeak, vibration, rattle).

(Not sure if these were mentioned)
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

As well as the urge to pour money into more than one Jeep. Side effects may be spouse accruing numerous "honey-do's", as well as trips to inlaws. Grease under your nails, numerous trips to NAPA and junk yards, and spare parts in the attic may indicate an addiction. There are no known cures. However there are support groups such as JeepForum.com
