Never knew I would have the guts to take a sawzall to my vehicle, chop its fenders curved crooked lines and all... and still be more proud then the day I bought it!

Have the guts to cut the entire stock suspension off in my driveway and put a new one in and be happy that driving over 70mph anywhere is an adventure in itself.

That hearing weird noises and dings in your vehicle means it running correctly.

That mud can be used as a tire shine.

That the more scratches you have, the more you enjoy life (kind of like the bigger your belly, the more you enjoy life)

That 6th gear with 3.21 gears and 33" tires is just for show.

And the windshield.. Oh the windshield.

Nobody told me also that it would be this fun to drive too!

Didn't realize how many smiles per gallon I'd be getting.

I love how my Jeep is as fun to drive on the worst day of winter as it is on the nicest day of summer.

Well, you've heard of OMG and OCD but nobody told me there was OMD- Obsessive Modding Disorder and that it was incurable as long as you own a Jeep. Each time I think I have done my last mod I discover another one that I just have to do. Symptoms include anxiety waiting for packages from Brown Santa, installation blues followed by euphoria and pride of ownership. The latter is part of the addiction- new mod high. Alcohol and wives/husbands are known to be moderating influences.

Odd... I was just telling the guys at work about summer/winter fun. So true! 👍

Nobody

told me what fun I was missing all my driving life. Almost waited too late to sign up! Never understood a Jeep is not a car or truck or ATV. It's uniquely Jeep.

I used to spend about 10 grand a year on RC Airplanes. I took a break from that hobby. I don't think I can afford planes, boats and a jeep so the planes had to go...for now.

1. I never knew I would love a vehicle this much again. This comes from a guy whose kids have grown old enough where I was able to get rid of a family truckster in order to buy the jeep.

2. That a vehicle could draw so much attention. I have even been waved down by a guy walking on the side of the road to talk about my mods. He just bought a Jeep and wanted a closer look at mine. I still get compliments at least once a week. I know the old guy in the corvette doesn't get this attention.

3. That these things really are designed to go naked. They are designed to easily take the doors and roof off. Much easier than I could have imagined.

4. That I would have to say goodnight to my Jeep every night.

Right there with you. I don't think I have owned a vehicle I like his much in a long time. I have had well over 40 cars and this rates up at the top...including a 2005 BMW X5 4.8 is and 2011 Avalanche LTZ. I did have an old CJ-7 back in early 90s. That was pretty cool too.

My milf wife would agree with you. I trained her right & my daughter on the wave though. My wife says she's to the point where she rarely waves to another female for that reason & she gets offended when guys don't wave back.
I trained her so well she knows how to respond to smart arse questions to. She works at a bank & a customer asked her about her Jeep & if she knew how to use or what the winch was for. She told him " I know exactly what its for, it's to remove your truck from a 6inch wet clay ditch when it's stuck in it! "

Oh you don't know what your missing buddy until you've driven an 82 CJ7 on 35s locked frotn &rear 400miles round trip to wheel at Grey Rock. While following your friends towing their rigs at about 90mph on the interstate. The ol beast made it there & back & broke 3 driveshafts, 6 u-joints, 1 yoke, 4 hubs, 1 leaf spring, 1 seat mount & the clutch linkage. It pays to be a mechanic & have friends that varry tons of spare parts in their tow rigs!
Owned a CJ7, KJ, YJ & currently drive an XJ & the wife drives the JK ( of course ). I get the old stuff.

Funny!
On my desk is a post card from the Moab Brewery, every year I write down what I need to do before next Moab.
Right now:

PSC steering assist (to move the 37's)
Get my beadlocks on

That is it for now...

Although you think your jeep is perfect almost every passenger (mostly coworkers) will complain about not having grab handles to get in or out... looks like i found my next mod :-)
