You spend two hours with a shop-vac and a makeshift hose cleaning as much crap as possible out of your frame.......After every off-road trip.

Drill a hole in the bottom of the frame near the control arm mounts and flush it with water...

Or plug the hole in the frame

I check the Weather app on my phone at least a dozen times a day to check for rain in the forecast

When you yell jeep every time you see another wrangler! Oh wait maybe that's jeep Tourette's...?

Glad I'm not the only one.
I'll add to this:
When everyone in the house asks you what the weather will be for the next 5 days because they know that you've been checking.

Between my Jeep and my jet ski I qualify as an amateur meteorologist.

i was going to drill the a hole in the frame to let it drain out. but i like the idea of the plug. any other places for water to get in that i would have to worry about?

...when you clean these out after every off-road trip.

The long tube the jounce bumper hangs off is hollow and open at the top.
When I discovered this, mine were chock full of mud/twigs/pebbles.
Now they get cleaned out after every trip.
Still got a pebble rattling around in one of them but I'll get it out one day :D

Odd....cuz when folks ask me what the weather is gonna be like, I say "Its Jeep weather! It dont matter, cuz I'm goin' anyhow."

"bad" weather just makes it a teensy bit more entertaining.

I remember the first time I cleaned one out. I stuck an air nozzle down in it and squeezed the lever...WHOOSH! Dirt and crap everywhere, but mostly on me :rofl:

My family made a game out of seeing other wranglers. Whoever sees it first and points it out gets a point. Game ends when the trip ends.

We do the same thing, kinda like slug bug but its beep beep jeep then we wave. We also get bonus points if they actually wave back.

haha we do this too. It evolved from always pointing and yelling 'jeep' when we see another one. We figured if we're gonna be pointing and yelling might as well add some friendly competition to the mix!


I also seem to wave when I'm not driving the jeep. I get some strange looks and then I'm like CRAP I forgot which vehicle I'm in :doh:

Gunner 04-30-2013 02:12 PM

When you don't have any dirty pictures of your jeep. And you actually wheel it.
And my wife now points out the jeeps when we are driving. She's learning the J's. CJ's,YJ's,TJ's.

Gold Miner 04-30-2013 02:17 PM

I recently spent 10hrs hand cleaning and detailing my engine and the inside of my engine compartment including hand washing/waxing the firewall and underside of hood.
There is no hope for me. :crazy:

Drives my wife nuts also. It also drives her nuts that I think every Jeep is "good-looking" or "nice"! She puts it in the Fetish column!
