You know you own a TJ when you literally just finished laughing out loud at professional reviews because they cry about how Wranglers lack on-road refinement, suffer from excessive wind noise, and think the Chevy Equinox is a comparable alternative. Ranked 19 of 20. It's like criticizing Caterpillar's bulldozers for not having better cup holders.

You toy with the idea of selling your Jeep. Then you twist a few wrenches, look at the latest Jeep catalog, attend a Monster Truck Jam, & think "Well I can't sell it now". The day after I replaced my clutch a guy pulled up beside me & offered to buy it. I couldn't do it.

Jeeps aren't just off road machines. I promise you more people use tjs as daily drivers than just off road machines. And yes this is where the tj lacks. It's suspension is as hard as a rock, everything on the inside is made of hard plastic, it's loud.

A jeep isn't a fourwheeler, it's a vehicle. It's going to get reviewed as a vehicle. Not as an ATV.

I don't think the suspension is as hard as a rock. And I like the interior of my TJ, I wouldn't have it any other way, and it's my dd. I enjoy the loudness of my jeep as well, from the tires to the engine to the exhaust. Makes me feel like I'm actually driving something

Or you smile, because you see all these "issues" as selling points.

And lets see an Equinox go topless on a sunny day.

Love mine to. It's my dd and even after that faithful day when it quits running he's just going to sit in my garage next to my new jeep. Lol

When you relize how much stress and worry have left your soul the week after you own one. And your driveway turned brown.

When driving home from work, you look at the ditch and think that it would be more fun than driving on the road

When you get in or out of your TJ, eye it up and down, and smile. "I'm never getting rid of this thing!!" you say. You then proceed down the road dreaming of all the mods you can't afford . True Jeeps😜

When you don't ever wana sell it. Even though it's slow, handles like shit, and costs so much in gas.

When you don't ever wana sell it because it goes anywhere, who needs to go fast anyway, and let's see your Honda civic do half the things that my jeep does.
