When your top dollar price for house hunting has to go up because you MUST have the garage space/yard/driveway area for the Jeep, the trailer, and everything else because you won't pay for storage and absolutely REFUSE to part ways with it.

When buying a sand blaster will save you hundreds of hours and a lot of money!

when cleaning all the junk off your t-case and transmission will increase your fuel economy

That's why my tags say 81 CJ7. No explanation needed.

That's when you know you own a 3 speed lol. I had a friend try to shift into first from second and almost got it into reverse before he realized what the grinding was. That would have been bad

Haha. This happened to me today. I was trying to get the cj started after 7 years and was trying to roll it off while being pulled by a tractor. I went to go into neutral and the whole thing came off I was unable to get into neutral and ran into the back of the tractor when it fired up
