...cleaning out the inside of your vehicle requires a leaf blower and garden hose.
...when thinking about cleaning the inside of you vehicle, you stop because, "it ought to rain in the next couple of weeks".
...dirt, mud, scratches, dents are less of a concern and more of a badge of honor.
...when someone asks how old your vehicle is, you ask them to quantify the question (VIN year, engine build year, engine rebuild year, engine bought year, engine installed year, frame/body year, etc.).
...when someone tells you they have OB-Air, OB-Welder, OB-Shower, etc., you are not confused, curious, or even perplexed...you are jealous.
...you actually know what a "Nutter" bypass is.
...when somebody else is going to drive your vehicle, you tell them they have to do math to estimate how fast you THINK they might really be going.
...you know, in your heart of hearts, that every piece of equipment is completely replaceable (including engines frames, bodies, etc.).
...a broke part is just a sign that, obviously you need to upgrade.
...you have more wires and hoses NOT plugged into anything than ones that are.
...you've had to bypass your bypass and bypass the bypass to your bypass.
...you treat your gauges like they are ex-wives - while you do have to pay attention to them on occasion, you know they are a bunch of lying b*tches that are not to be trusted.
You know you drive a CJ when...virtually all the other Jeeps you meet on the road should wave at you first.
