...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....
Let my wife read this and now I'm in the doghouse!

Sorry, I have to agree, don't get that one either. Don't you always wait for the lights on the left and right of you to turn red before turning? And the radius would be tighter going to the right than the left.

Maybe it is something to do with the acceleration of his CJ?

when the homeowners association asks you to move it and you say alright, put it in neutral and push it!

When railroad crossings cause you to "white knuckle death grip" the steering wheel before you cross them and you have to look back for anything that fell out/off after you made it across.

...when it takes a few weeks of stomping the floor of your "new car" to realize that you don't have a clutch pedal you need to push in order to start it.

..when you are married with 3 kids and you park in the driveway because your 2 car garage is filled with a 25 year old CJ and kids toys.

...when you realize that there are a lot of crosswinds when going over a bridge.

...when you stop 15 feet before the intersection so you can still see the stop light.

...when you remove the back seat to add more tool boxes because you didn't feel safe enough with just one.

...when you keep extra gloves, blanket and a winter hat for your wife so she is comfortable going for a ride...in october.

...when you close the door softly so no rust falls off.

...when your jeep is a better investment than your 401K or IRA since it will ALWAYS be worth "about $1,000" no matter what happens to it, or how old it gets.
