You know you drive a TJ when....

1 - newer jeep owners are envious because they spent three times as much for a vehicle that is less fun.

2 - You secretly have a contest in your garage to see which will win. Will there be a larger fluid puddle or more loose rust on the garage floor each time you pull it put.

3 - You drive a manual but avoid using second until your baby warms up.

4 - After washing and waxing, you WD40 the door hinges.

5 - You never heard of power windows

6 - You are on a first name basis with the manager at the local auto parts store.

7 - No oner ever tries to race you at a light.

10 - If busted for speeding it was for going less than 70 mph.

11 - You drive the only vehicle both owned by 16 year old girls and 70 year old men and both think they are cool.

12 - Your doors have faded at a different rate then the rest of the jeep.

Now you guys add some.

If you drive a manual, it takes you 6 seconds to get up to speed from a stop.

I think this sums up the Jeep world nicely! What other vehicle is this universally liked across the spectrum of people?

When you're sitting at home and it's raining hard outside, and you're just waiting for it to die down a little so you can go pull the drain plugs.

When you make damn sure that you park on the only snow mound in the parking lot, even if it's the farthest spot from the door.

Your interior is spray painted.
You never thought of using bed liner to line a truck bed.

13 - You get sad when something in your house breaks, but when something on your jeep brakes, you see it an an opportunity to upgrade.

14 - You become skilled at washing your Jeep with a hose while the doors and top are off and don't get the interior wet.

15 - BUT, when it starts to rain you just wait for it to die down a little so you can go pull the drain plugs.

16 - When all the belt loops on the right side of your jeans are ripped off.

17 - When your wife says ....."lets go topless"

18 - When you park extremely out of the way just to because there is another Jeep with an empty spot beside it.

19 - You think "bedliner" should be re-labled "tub liner".

The post for the door latch is positioned in such a way that when you hop out of the Tj it tends to grab on to your belt loops. Or other clothing peaces that may get stuck on it.
