Your bottom radiator hose starts leaking because the fan hit it because you broke your motor and tranny mount for the third time.

My girlfriend came up with this one... "When you need training on how to open and close the soft top doors."

when the neighborhood ladies stop and gawk at the '07 JK sitting on 37s and the men stop and gawk at the primer gray CJ and then look at each other in disgust.

every now and then they ask me to tell them which one is better... I never answer... ladies are nice to look at and you always need an extra set of hands at some point


also, you know you drive a CJ when there are 4-5 guys at your garage every weekend to watch what you are doing.

When you spend $27 to put a water pump on your 258 even though your dropping in a 304 the following weekend. That's a week of driving time I could've missed.

when custom fabbed parts are cheaper than OEM and better quality

you know you drive a cj when you twist the drive shaft and find yourself at the shop at 11'oclock at night cutting the caps off and replacing the tube because the kids want to ride in it the following morning.

During your test drive you drop half the oil you put in it on the road.

You feel buying a Wrangler is selling out.

When your at the age that you drive newer cars that don't break down and you are thinking about selling your tools,,, then you acquire a CJ and all of a sudden you need more tools -- a torque wrench, welder, pullers, air grinders and you are even trying to justify a plasma cutter. LOL
