I used to have a 1985 CJ7 now a 02 Wrangler.
You know you drive a CJ when...... it is raining and there is more water on the inside of the windshield then outside.

You know you drive a CJ when you don't know how much fuel you have in the tank no more about the electrical system than your mechanic and old dudes say that was my first jeep Man it was fun !

Then you realize you are part of a club of what people consider real jeeps can't tell you how many times I have had guys tell their wives or kids that's a real jeep !!!!

And I want to reply yes a real pain in the ass but I love working on it as much as driving it .

You know you drive a CJ when you've become pretty good at estimating your speed without a functioning gauge.

You know you drive a cj when you know how to maintain a straight line even with 15 degrees of wheel play in the steering

It was said earlier, but I thi ought it was worth reiterating...You know you drive a CJ when you fill up every time you drive it...because your fuel gauge is broken

You know you drive a CJ when you get in a vehicle without NDT tires and think there's something wrong because it's so quiet

You know you own a CJ when you have to scrape the inside of the windshield in the winter.
