I have just completed my first full week of being a TJ owner. Just hopped in my wife's buick enclave and I am yearning to be back in the jeep already! They are like crack. First I tried to hit the clutch when I started up and was met with the dead pedal... Doh! Then I saw a neighbor and instinctively opened the door to say hi forgetting that I can roll any of the 4 windows down without opening the door... doh again! Worst was when I drove by another TJ and gave a wave only to be met with a weird "do I know you" look. So many other things that just make the wrangler experience better (worse) then any other car. Ill happily give up all the conveniences to get back to my jeep!!

Hahahaha! Yep, the wave instinct takes a while to shake loose.
But I sure am enjoying not having to unzip my window at the drive-thru!

It was weird. I was sitting in park and could not tell if the engine was on or not.... Definitely not a problem with the TJ!

I've found myself reaching outside to open the door while driving other vehicles.

Biggest change for me is the lack of body roll. Front antisway bars are overrated (until you hit that on ramp a little too quick, for all I know the tub was perpendicular to the frame)
