When your wife thinks you have a girlfriend, but you're really just messaging and sending money to Rick at Quadratec.

When you and your jeep go on a diet at the same time, and for the same reason (because you're still running a D44)

When you know what antisquat % is, and want less of it

when you pull the seats out and open the top so you can use your floor vac to clean the leaves and dirt out of the jeep, then hit it with a leaf blower a second time to ensure you got every thing out of the corners for the vac to pick up

When it's Christmas, and instead of buying presents for the kids, you have to buy new parts to replace the ones you broke wheeling yesterday. Priorities.

When the attendant at Auto Bell comes out and says I can't wash my Jeep there and refers you to the DIY wash down the street and the DIY place down the street refers you to his competition down the street from him (a hole in the wall place). You finally get the mud off at the hole in the wall DIY place because no one is there to stop you.

I don't go mudding but this one will ring true for people who do...

When washing your Jeep involves putting a lawn sprinkler underneath for an hour before you start seriously washing it.

This is true. Pulled those plugs years ago, rubber mats. I cut screen for windows, cut circular patches of screen, and put it on the outside bottom of the drain hole in the floor board. I used RTV along the edge to hold that screen over the drain holes to keep bugs and creepy crawl-ees out.

You have to take the shop vac to the screen from the inside every so often to keep the screen clear so it will drain,
Other than that , seven years and still works.
Love that TJ !
have a good one

when you lay a tarp over your rig because the top's down and putting the top back up would take at least an additional minute and a half to get done instead.

I don't go mudding, I hate mud. However, sometimes mud is a byproduct of wheeling.

But yes, the sprinkler under the Jeep is helpful.

How do you mean?

Entertainment as in you find them interesting and educational to watch?

Or entertainment as in "Hey, watch these clowns try to install a lift kit. They have no idea what they're talking about!"

Both can be entertaining.

Agree. Both can be entertaining!
But hey, even the bad ones at least give you tips&tricks on what 'not to do' when you do your own install.

When you look for quick connects so you can compleat your half completed (in progress) mod install and your too damn picky that only certain of wire tap quick disconnects will do and you order in bulk off Amazon because you got Prime.



When your family tells you prime is too expensive at $100 a year and you sit there thinking to your self how much shipping would have cost with out prime and just calmly tell them prime has already paid for its self 20 times over. (ask how I know this......hehe)
