When you park your beat up dented rust bucket next to a nice YJ and still get the thumbs up.

Hope this isn't a repeat:

Your idea of AC is pulling the drain plugs and putting a bag of ice in each floorboard.
And yes, I did this at the Woodward Cruise a couple of years ago.

"you read the odometer when you last fueled up so you know that you will need gas in exactly 58 miles!"

That's too perfect! Couldn't say it better myself.

When your idea of a functioning radio is your phone playing MP3's on its built in speaker.

When you move cross country and order parts for the first time at your new local parts store and you have to wait for the manager to come out because he wants to meet the new Jeep guy in town..

the guy at the paint store reminds you for the 4th time to "shake or stir the sh** out of the paint", to keep it mixed, until he see what you drove up and then says, "never mind"

Your wife won't ride in the jeep cuz she doesn't want to get a case of, "Shaken Mommy Syndrome".
My name is joe and I drive a jeep. You can tell by the grease all over my clothes!

When you absolutely REFUSE to put the hardtop and doors back on if it's ONLY going to rain for 2 or 3 days in a row.

When you carry a pair of goggles just in case you get caught in a downpour with the top and doors off.

When you keep a chamois (or the like) in the Jeep to wipe the dew off the seats in the morning, but ALWAYS forget to wipe off the roll bar and visors, and still get to work looking like you got caught in the rain.

If you've ever been caught in the rain, had the windshield wipers mysteriously quit working, and said, "Screw it, I have goggles, I'll just put the windshield down!" (Has happened twice now lol)

I am known as the "Jeep Expert" at the auto parts store where I work, because I'm in there buying parts for the Jeep on just about every day off. They actually yell "NICK! ANOTHER JEEP!" every time someone comes in with questions about a Jeep. lol

When the tow bar attachments are permanently mounted to the front bumper so that you can tow it home to work on it after the parking lot fix doesn't take care of the problem.

- Once you've changed every single wear part, it really runs pretty doggone good!
