Do you have a picture of new vs old on those headlights? If not maybe you could just snap a pic next time it's dark so I can see what those look like? Because stocks are pretty crappy so I'm looking at upgrades.

Next time my daughter comes over, (She still has stock sealed beams) I'll put the Jeeps side by side and aim the lights at the side of the garage and out into the backyard, then snap a few pics.

When you buy your wife a plug in blanket. Because you are too stubborn to put the top on, because it is only 60 degrees at night.

When the first rain of the season comes and you're excited for mud, and not so exited to see if you have leaks on your soft top.

When it takes longer to clean the mud off the driveway then it did to wash the jeep

Finely got some rain so I could get the jeep muddy but had to clean it off today so my paints would stay clean for work

You know you drove a Tj when it gets you more phone numbers than your new mustang.

When you go mudding and after 8 hours it continue to throw mud.

When getting 10 mpg is a miracle

What are the specs for your jeep? 10 seems a little low, but your tires look massive in your profile pic

When your idea of "washing" it doesn't involve soap, just a pressure wand to blow the dirt out of the frame, rims, tire treads, etc.
