You'll find out! Just got my first one (97 white tj) 3 weeks. I thought i would hate it because it leaked and stuff but now honestly I dont ever see me driving anything else.

Here's another: you know you drive a tj when: every dude you that see's it ask "you takin it through any mud yet?"

When you don't care that the parking lot if full at work and have to park like this an don't even feel bad when the a-hole parks just about on your bumper and when you take off you cover him in mud done this a few times

I think tagging another ride with mud counts as bonus

It is really more of a problem with a lift. It always happens when your kinda to the backside of the door and jump up into the seat, when you swing into the seat your back left loop could possibly die

you swing the door shut and it bounces back open because the seat belt strap is covering the door latch.

When you hit the muddy dirt road before work, then forget and get mud all over yourself when you get to work.

You know you drive a TJ when you talk it up to your bud in geek squad for 2 hours on the clock and he is jealous cuz he has a YJ.

And when it's 25 degrees outside and you justify it's warm enough to take the top off when your used to 5 degree weather.

When a guy at work tells you your Jeep is leaking something, and you know it's just Kroil dripping off.

No matter WHAT bolt you try to remove, it will strip and/or break-off. And it will be a Torx one at that....

This is so correct I'm actually pissed off about it. Attempted to take off my spare to remove the entire bumper/tireswing assembly but went to undo the locking lugnut and the key snapped off a chunk of the nut...now I think my only option is to get comfy with a dremel. Any other solutions people have found?

For Sure! Had to do that to the door hinges for a few weeks to get them off.

Hammer a 12 point socket on the locking lugnut. It will spin it right off. I know cause I lost my key and had to take 5 off.

When a guy comes up to you at the pumps and asks if you know someone who is selling a hard top or where he can get one for cheap. I then referred him to the local jeep guy. He is very well known in my town for having one or two of EVERYTHING jeep.
