When all you've been driving for the past couple of weeks is the Toyota to teach a new driver and you make random excuses as to why you need to take the jeep just because you miss her.

When you're playing golf with your buddies and you take the golf cart up and down all the mounds around the fairways and greens just to see if she'll make it...

... you work in a factory and every time you see a scrap piece of metal or something lying around you think to yourself, "hmmmm... I wonder if I could fab that into some sort of cheap, easy, fun, CREATIVE mod for my Jeep?"

When you just bought your TJ three days ago, and you just joined this forum today, and you read through all 68 pages of this without ever leaving your seat. Then you decide that it's been too long since you've driven her, so you run to the corner store at 1 am, not because you need anything, but just because you miss being behind the wheel.

when you are 20 minutes late for work because its going to rain, but waited untill you got in the parking lot at work to put the top up and then EVERYONE has to stop and ask you about the jeep.

Come to find out, I broke the motor mount bolts and the drive train rotated counterclockwise. The shifter was stuck on the tub. 2 hours later I was back on the road. But when it happened I was pissed, scared that it was something major and I almost cried.

Don't feel too bad about it, I ended up with death wobble a few weeks after i bought it because of some off balance dry rotted tires and a poor alignment. She's all fixed now though. And I'm sure yours will be great and run fine.

That's called jeep time, we will have plans to do something and I will start working on something while the wife is at work she gets off and I'm still working on it she asks if I'm almost done, and if I so no it'll only b a few more mins she says she's gonna call whomever we had plans with and cancel them.

When the last three times you drank beer involved metric and SAE tools, Kroil, rags, and your Jeep.

Maybe my Jeep and I are just getting old, lol.

When your manager asks in a concerned manner if "you'll be ok since it's 3am and you have no top or doors".
Or
When you switch lanes just to make sure the TJ on the other side is able to see you wave.
