When your, once organized, 650 sq ft apartment (which you have instead of a house, to afford a jeep) becomes nothing more than a used parts dealership.

When you think about passing someone, then think you'd have to drop 3 gears and floor it just to causually go by, then disregard the whole idea and take a side road instead.

X3! I'm used to my 2 firebirds which pass anything no problem. Driving the jeep, it just seems like passing isn't possible.

This one applies to all Jeeps (New Jeep Owners Beware!)

You have serious scuffs on all your left shoes! Unless your only a rider...then it's the right ones.

I just recently purchased my TJ and noticed the oil spills. Is this normal? Also any info on why my AC vents go to defrost mode after I hit 65 MPH?

So, you're saying that you have an oil leak?

By the way, an oil leak from the jeep is typical. The dude who said he has 225k, without an oil leak is not normal.

You know you drive a TJ when it's winter and you can still see your breath while driving.

When it is 102 degrees outside and you wish you were driving your topless TJ instead of the nice, plush 2012 F250 King Ranch with ice cold AC.

When your steering wheel is nice and smooth on top from years if use.

That's true I may not be normal but the reason I don't have any leaks is, I can't stand something to leak so if I have a leak I fix it....
by the way my original engine had 215k and never leaked any. The only leak I've ever had was the front pinion seal that I fixed a few months ago

you are swerving all over the road because you are trying to dig that piece of dirt out of your eye that was in the floorboard until you hit the interstate with the top down.

Two years into my 98 TJ, not a single loop busted, haven't even had one get caught and not bust. Must be a height thing...
