Cleanliness:
...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.

Questions:
...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.

Equipment:
...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.

And Finally:
You know you drive a CJ when...virtually all the other Jeeps you meet on the road should wave at you first.

When you won't give in to the idea that there is a lot better technology out there and you don't have to own a jeep with a rough ride, 3/4 finished frame (not boxed in all the way), lack of fuel injection, roll cage that was designed to cut the heads off of the people in the back. Seatbelts that show just how much you care about your kids. Poor soft top designs, rust over the wheel wells because the people at the factory didn't care enough to put on golves when fiting the tubs on the frame while leaving the oil from their hands left on your jeep setting them up to rust Bomb proof Transfercases in a select few years. The last of the V-8's from the factory and a platform that set the way of how not to build a jeep with round headlights for the guys that were designing the TJ's

Just Kidding. I've owned several CJ's both 5's and 7's. It was just fun to look back on the good ole days

BUY IT DONT' BUILD IT!! You will be money and time ahead. (Flip off)

When asked the year by someone you can reply that the VIN and dashboard are from an 81.....and then rattle off that the motor is from a 79, trans from a 78, xcase from a 80 scout....etc.......while they look at you wondering why they asked.

When you explain to the wife that you need a new locker because your blower motor went out. They never know the difference.

... when you have to make a 3-point turn to pull onto a 2 lane highway

... when driving topless, doors off, and windshield down the wind blows a tool/part/something into your head that you've either never seen before or been missing for months

... when your friend complains of a pulled groin muscle from getting into your Jeep

... when driving down the road non-jeepers give you the jeep

...when ramen becomes a staple after more broken parts make you realize your priorities
...when your passengers are terrified at 50 mph
...when you can get out of an unreliable, slow, loud machine, reeking of fuel and still have a big old grin on your face

When you have to master the art of "heel toe" to keep the jeep running and the alternator charging at stop lights on hill's.

when you change the oil when you think it's "about time" because your odometer doesn't work.

when your shifter has more travel than a big rigs.

when you smell something new while driving you wounder if its coming from your jeep.

Small, fine shavings are ok, large chunks are bad, huge chunks with part number stamped on them are real bad.

All of these are so true but that last one by buzzbrick really explains it all, too bad a lot of people out there do not understand.

Or you have dreams about punching the guy who invented them in the face.
and nightmares about all bolts being torx and nothing else....
