What I've learned

Hello Everyone! I am a newbie to this forum but not to Jeeps. I had an 89 YJ 4 cyl for 7 years.
I’d like to share with you what I’ve learned from a women’s standpoint:
Plastic valve covers can blow up!
It can take 6 sockets to break a bolt loose on the cross member!
It is possible to track down another trans to replace the current one with chipped 2nd gear teeth, dedicate 3 days to finding new trans, fight cross member, remove old one, and then install new trans, put everything back together for the test drive, only to find out replacement trans has same problem but with 5th gear teeth!!!!!!
Having a husband who can do anything is priceless!
From time to time the spirit of Christine will possess your Jeep and make things happen that never happened before or again!
You cannot eat an ice cream cone while driving down the road with the top and doors off!
Your feet will burn in the middle of winter while everything else (including passengers) will freeze!
Yelling beep beep doesn’t replace a horn!
Wear sunglasses and keep your mouth closed the first 2 miles after taking the top off for the first time since last summer!
Carpet sucks!
Parking on a hill, opening the tailgate, and hosing that baby out is the best way to clean the interior!
No matter how much you yell at your passengers to peddle faster or chant “I think I can, I think I can”, you will NOT get up the hill any faster!
The best day of the year is the first day warm enough to take the top and doors off!
Trying to out run that very black rain cloud and losing, makes for the most hilarious ride!
If you wear shorts with the top off, you will have an amazing farmer’s tan!
Driving with the top off while it’s snowing is awesome!
Big road puddles are great fun when you have the top and doors off and have a passenger who can’t understand why you would want to drive something like this!!!
Taking the top off in the winter is easy, getting it back on is a BeoTCH!!
It is possible to use 4 foot snow banks on either side of your driveway to help you chew up the hill!
Driving with the top off when it’s snowing is fun!
When the weather man says too stay off the roads, what he really means is get that Jeep out there and raise some hell!
If someone bumps you, oh well!
My 70+ grandma likes the top off!!
Your kids will complain about everything with the Jeep until it’s gone, then it was the best vehicle you ever had!
An 80 lb bag of cement in the back will allow you plow through any amount of snow!
You can’t go Xmas shopping with your Jeep unless it’s one stop!
Tie it down or it’s going out the door, top, or back!
You can silently (or loudly) chuckle at the cars that were so annoyed being behind you on a hill and are now sliding or stopped on said hill in the snow!
Jeep people wave to Jeep people, unless you are too good for that (jack a$$es$)!!!!!!!!
If it’s 75 degrees and your top and doors are on, you’re a wussy!
Never, ever, ever decide that maybe it’s time to be a grown up and get something more reliable and practical!!!!!!
Traded my baby in on a new car…. L I’ll post back later what I learned from that experience!
