Or when you drive a 13 MOAB and her top leaks in the rain but you chalk it up as a Jeep thing and not a major defect.

Second one is when you get hit with a rain storm and you find the silver lining and just hit every hole possible so you can finally wash the undercarriage.

When you keep the 2 door in 2wd and purposely find an empty snow packed lot just to romp and drift in. Then you have to peel out cuz a cop comes your way about to ticket you for reckless driving even tho there was nothing around to hit but snowbanks.

When you have every seat taken in the jeep and take the freedom tops off just so you can fit more people by having them sit on the hardtop with their legs dangling into the cab.

When your jk sounds quieter and rides smoother than any other car your family drives.

When the freedom tops are off and some a**hole parks so close that climbing to the top and dropping in is the only way to get into your seat.

When you get irritated with the person in front of you that doesn't know where the gas pedal is and you have a built bumper so you give them a slight push or just climb their car completely and pass them that way. (Never done it, cause it's rude, but boy do I dream about doing it somedays haha)

When your mom thought a boat was a money pit, she had obviously never met someone who owned a jeep and spent all their money on upgrades :-D

I know the feeling, they ate putting in a new railroad siding by me, and it is just one big series of muddy hills

Lost my youngest daughters booster seat that way the first time I took the doors off and made a left turn. Now it goes in the cargo area when she isn't in it.

when for the first time ever you make room in your garage for a vehicle to fit so you can keep your top off even if it's gonna rain overnight

When you see a jeep broken down in the middle of the road and 3 passing jeep owners stop to help out and push it to a parking lot. True story. Gotta love the jeep community!

When you're at a rest stop getting gas and a guy comes up to you and says I know jeep drivers are always prepared for anything so I'm assuming you have jumper cables. Mind giving me a jump?

When you can't find a parking spot at Chipotle dead middle of winter and decide the snow removal mound will suffice.

When after buying your first Jeep you instinctively start waving at all the other jeeps, and than google Jeep Wave discovering you've been doing it right all along, only to be annoyed by the JK 4 door momma's who need to google Jeep wave.

(True story, got the Jeep started waving didn't know I had to. After a few days I was focused driving on the road and my brother said "Must be a Jeep thing?! Whats that? I say. The waving. He says. Yep its a Jeep thing.)

After working 11 hours you come home to browse the boards instead of watching Walking Dead or Game of Thrones or whatever your cup of tea is.

When one of the most exciting places you go on vacation is a jeep place. Lol Jeffs Jeep Yard in Clearwater Florida is awesome. They do some really cool jeeps and diesel conversions!

Lol. Is that because Jeep are known to have problems or because Jeep owners are known to have MacGuyver-like skills from all the crazy stuff we do?

Finders crossed- I've never had anything stolen out of mine. I'm sure it's just a matter of time.

When we go shipping my wife always asks me if the stuff is safe.. I say yeah, no one is gonna want " blah blah blah" (whatever we have in the back... broom.... ccat litter.... laundry basket.)
