When you jeep catches on fire and you fix it your self. The PO had a crime guard alarm installed and when I got home I when up in flames behind the dash. After I put the fire out I pulled the alarm system and cleaned up. Luckily I saw the smoke and had a fire extinguisher handy. Moral of the story, don't use crime guard alarms

When you park in an parking lot with no jeeps around you then 20 minutes later, there are 4 jeeps parked around you.

You know you own a TJ when your Idea of flirting is getting wind blown on your left ankle. Real Jeepers know what this means... ;^)

you know you drive a TJ when you start making lists of improvements to your vehicle, then realize your going to need a second job to pay for them.

Last winter I got a zone 3" lift and against what everyone said how great the ride is, mine is the stiffest ride I've ever felt. I thought about calling them to ask if there's anything I could do because it's miserable.

Can you lower the air pressure to soften it up a bit?

Yeah I have BFG KM2, the only thing is the bad gas mileage to add onto the already awful gas mileage I have from airing down to soften the ride.

You will tear your tires up and eventually get DW if you run your psi that low for any length of time..

When it comes to lifts the thing that creates the stiffened ride is the stock control arms at insane angles. They don't really want to move up and down like they should from a bump when they're at a steeper angle. The steeper the angle, the more pressure from the bump being pushed into the brackets and the less the arms move really. I can't really think of any better way to explain it without pictures. And x2 on the low air pressure remark. You'll be replacing tires like crazy. If it's stiff look into some aftermarket adjustable control arms and better bushings/joints.

Depends what size tire... I've ran my 31's @ 28-30psi for 30k miles and they wear even and have plenty of tread left...

Depends... What size tires does he have? The larger the tire the less psi it takes to hold the weight of the jeep... 33-35's are commonly run in the 25 range

Yep! Best use of a CB and trucker family. Going on a long trip, get into a conversation with a speedy trucker and tuck in behind him and draft for miles. :-) All just for the cost of a cup of coffee when he finally pulls off to get gas or just the conversation. Don't do this without talking to them first though, not polite and can get you brake checked or logjammed in behind a group of truckers pissed off at you real quickly. Always ask first.

When you realize it's not only officially spring, but it's in the 70's outside so you get excited to have to drive to a horribly boring, long, contentious meeting because you can pull your doors and top and DRIVE!
