...You and a buddy want to take 3 miles down the interstate for ****s and giggles, so yall put on full face motorcycle helmets, then running about 105 down the interstate, a coolant hose busts and you get sprayed with 200 degree water b/c the top and doors are sitting at home (as always) (True story..haha)

...You're buddy with a hardtop TJ locks his keys inside, and you say "Jeeps have locks?!?"

You have to wait for the lights to your right and left to turn red before you can make a left hand turn onto a 4 lane.

After spending the last two days fighting with 12 torx bolts to remove a rollbar you wish death upon the inventor.............or at least a bad stomach virus and the only way into the bathroom is by removing a rusted T-45 bolt.

When you spend $1000 on a CJ7 and after 2 plus years and $5000 more you are only half finished and couldn't be happier. And you don't even know if the darn thing will run or not. Still happy.

When you miss it more after not driving it a few days then you miss your family and friends after not seeing them for a few months

You know you drive a CJ when...

...You send your wife a link to a forum thread on "You know you drive a CJ when..." thinking it will amuse her, make sense and explain why you find it perfectly reasonable to buy a Jeep on Ebay and spend the next 5 years replacing every part with parts from other types of vehicles just to get it to the "way you want"

...Your wife practically falls out of the Jeep when you make turns yet you refuse to buy and install a roll bar she can hang onto because it will mess up the aesthetics of your Jeep and because the seatbelt *should* hold her in

...Your wife asks you what the two of you will do together while on vacation and you tell her that you are going to spend the entire time working under your Jeep and don't understand why she can't find something else to do because to you, working on your Jeep IS a vacation

...Your wife wants to buy a new car and you send her pictures of other old Jeeps to buy so you can mix and match parts

...For Christmas, you ask for a new alternator, or Dana 44 axle, or sheet metal to custom cut your own new dashboard, or a shower for your Jeep

...You tell her that you think it would be cool to spend $400+ to convert your Jeep into a huge air compressor tool rather than just go buy a $400 air compressor because with an air compressor conversion in your Jeep you will be able to take off nuts and/or bolts and repair your Jeep when you break down while off-roading

...You talk about repairing your Jeep on the road after off-roading when you DON'T OFF-ROAD (although you will, once you get your Jeep fixed the way you want)

...You see nothing WRONG with buying a Jeep for $1500 and spending $5000+ (or $10,000 or $20,000) to "get it the way you want", then admit that by the time you "get it the way you want", there will probably be more things that you can change to "make it even cooler"

...You tell your wife about the time in the parking lot when your brakes failed and you had to drive around in circles until the car slowed enough on its own that you could get it to stop, then don't understand why her face looks like that

...You have to take HER car everywhere because you don't have a passenger seat in YOUR Jeep

...You'd rather look at harnesses for the DOG to ride in the Jeep than a new seatbelt or rollbar for your WIFE so SHE can ride in the Jeep

All this has happened to this wife in the last four weeks....
