When's the last time you said that to yourself?
About 5 minutes ago after watching some real cool videos of JKURs on YouTube.

FWIW, I've never driven my Jeep.

A few minutes ago, when I looked at my window and saw my drive way filled with mine and my wifes

Basically, every time I drive it.

My wife was kidding me today about my "other women", and I laughingly told her, well you know, there is another woman. She's yellow, I love her, and she takes all my extra money!

Really though, this Jeep is the only vehicle I have had since I was a teenager that I go for a ride just to go for a ride, know what I mean?

Yesterday! Went wheeling with a buddy up into the Sequoia's in the Chimney Peak area. It was my second real trip with the Jeep and the first since removing the trac bars and sway bar, man what a difference! I LOVE this little Jeep!

Everyday

I woke up this morning and saw it in my garage (that was the first time). Then I got in it to go to work (that was the second time). Then I drove to work (that was nice). Then I cried a little when I had to get out and leave it in the parking garage....... ok this is getting long. So in short I love my Jeep so much that I say that about 3 seconds after I think about sex (they say every 7 seconds) I think about my Jeep.

How bout second time today, 3rd time this week, someone has come up and said "Do you want to sell it?"
Most are amazed it's a 97. Granted I take good care of it, but, and I've owned a bunch of Jeeps, this one just has a presence about it that my others didn't.

Just something about it, nothing outrageous in off road equipment, but it has a stance to it.
A stance that says "I can take you there, and bring you back"

I love my, errr, "Our" Jeep.

I probably average once a day, I miss some days and say it multiple times on others. Sometimes the phrase is "damn, that's a sexy arse Jeep".

usually when I make it to the top of a climb but I say the opposite when I have problems fixing things. As of right now I had to rent a sliding hammer to get the race out of the rear tube so I can put the new shafts in the rear.

I had to put the top on yesterday to take it in for a lift. After neglecting it for a week I sat down and my heavy load of stress disappeared like a cloud of smoke.

Every time I get in I think to myself "Life is good."

Talking Man what fun!

Every night for the last 5 nights! My wife has decided that she wants to get used to going wheeling with me so we go out for a few hours after dinner.

Now you have to understand that she is a big chicken when it comes to ANY hill, going up is the worst for her because she can't see the other side. Once she sees the other side of the hill, going down is not as scary for her. All I can say is I am proud of her for taking herself WAY out of her comfort zone.

This Saturday my daughter is going on a club run with me up into the local mountains and it will be a challange to say the least but she is looking forward to it and so am I.

I love my Jeep!

I say "I love my jeep" almost everyday, but I remember the first time I said it. When I first caught on to people I've never seen waving at me in they're Jeeps. When I finally understood the "Jeep thing" it was one of the greatest feelings.

Awwww......

When I look in the back to see my dog with his tongue out and ears flapping in the wind. He looks so happy.

I love the noises it makes, how unrefined it is.

I finally found 4 wheels that fit.
Amen, brother.

Honestly, there is never a day that I don't think to myself "Man, I've got the best vehicle in the entire world". Work was extremely stressful today, so on my lunch break I found the steepest dirt hill I could find and drove up it for half an hour. After that all the stress was simply gone and I had an extremely great rest of the day!
