so heres a short story... you know you drive a jeep when...(i work for a used car dealer) you boss offers to trade you even up for a 2003 mustang svt cobra with all kinds of work done to it(the svt cobras are supercharged, this was a low 12 second car no doutb) and you just shrug your shoulders and say ill think about it, while secretly laughing inside your head. he also wanted to trade me a mint 2007 trailblazer ss(13 second suv with a corvette motor).

You buy your first jeep and you can't stop looking at it and telling your hubby, "know what I've got? A COOL JEEP!!!"

I just bought my beautiful '95 a barely a month ago and I can relate to this thread. Awesome stuff. If I may amend this to "You know you drive a YJ in Miami" (though some may pertain to other regions) when:

... friends ask "did you go to the beach?" when all you did was go for a nice, long drive.

... you bemoan the relative lack of nearby off-road areas and the only "hill" worth mentioning is the Rickenbacker Causeway.

... for the same reason, you get into the habit of parking on top of the parking stops, just because.

... the guy in the Jeep across the intersection thinks you're Wrangler Waving when all you're doing is trying to get the mosquitos off your arms.

... people wonder how you can drive without a/c in this heat and your reply is "I can take my doors off" and give them a quizzical look.

... you're at an intersection surrounded by Ferraris and Lamborghinis and instead of awe, your first thought is "I could probably drive over one of these."

... you need to pick up new headphones at the local Apple Store and mysteriously end up in Fort Lauderdale.


Also, as a new owner in my first YJ, you know you're a newbie in a Wrangler when:

... out of habit you lock your door when you park it, despite the top being down.

... your first thought when driving through some familiar streets is "wow the city is really letting these road go to s***."

... you open the door, try to catch it with your foot so it doesn't ding the neighboring car (the way you read in forums) and you're limping the next few minutes because you're wearing flip flops.

... even if your last car was a relatively weak 4-cylinder, the first time you try to pass someone on the freeway with your 2.5L, you can't help but look down to make sure you didn't leave the emergency brake on.

... you turn off the air conditioning and suddenly the acceleration feels like you just installed a turbo.

... your friend, who owns a loaded, leather-lined '11 Grand Cherokee, makes you drive everywhere now because her "sunroof just doesn't feel the same."

... the first time you fill up the tank and realize your mpg is 16 and, while pretty good for a Wrangler, is appalling to you because your last car was a Civic.

... your first reaction to aforementioned mileage is to log on the the forum and find out what's wrong with your engine, thinking you just bought a lemon and discover a lot of YJ owners might give their left (lug)nut to get 16 mpg.

... when said friend teases you by saying her Grand Cherokee with a V-6 gets better gas mileage and your only comeback is, "yeah well, I can take my doors off" to which she gives you a pouty look and says "whatever."

Ditto for this, mostly for my wife. It's a kind of therapy to take her for a Jeep ride when stressed out.
Even more so when weather allows for top down (too much rain in the past couple months for that here in Mobile Alabama)

Good set there, Dan-E!
You know you're a jeeper when the streets flood and you're on the scene rescuing trapped cars before EMS has even arrived... and when you do a better job than they do!
(flash flooding in Pittsburgh area last night was amazing, pounded through nearly two feet of water at one point, but I got a nice dress shirt soaked trying to get the doors on... also: you know you're a jeeper when driving in the rain is a better evening than a fancy italian dinner!)

Lol 500 on a sound system....you drive a jeep, nothing is cheap and all the "amenities" are junk from the factory. You should know this by now. Im into just my system for $1700. Thats without installation because i put it in myself. What all did you get for $500? And what kind of exhaust do you have? because they dont sound very good factory

When you're deployed for 6 months, and miss driving your Jeep more than you miss seeing your fiance.

When you are on your way to work and see a flooded dirt parking lot, make a u-turn in heavy traffic just to go play in the mud.
