PS to CH3NO2 CJ7s count, post some pictures

Re: Any other Wrangler owners?

^mmm well id have to buy one to see what i think and comment. I don't know anything about the new ones, only the older ones 98-2002 models. You have to order 4wd on the new ones? Thats kinda crazy. I thought they were all 4wd with the Rock-track system or the command track system where you can just drop it into 4wd. I never seen a Jeep in chicago without 4WD anyhow. You have to order anything other then that around here, unless its the patriot or the compass.

Re: Any other Wrangler owners?

You know you have a real jeep. . . .

1. If you use a hose to clean the inside and the outside
2. You can air up your tires without stopping at a gas station
3. When the best route from point A to point B is through the rock pile or over the mountain
4. When a scratch or a dent is a beauty mark
5. You roll it over and don't get upset
6. Your mom and sister can't get in without help
7. You judge every hill you see by how much fun it would be to climb
8. You get custom pin-striping from trail brush
9. If it takes more than 6 hours to get donuts
10. When you pull into the unplowed parking spots on snowy days
11. When you take your friends wheeling and they say "What trail? I don't see a trail!"
12. When you've been forced to add TJ, CJ, YJ, and XJ to your spell-checker
13. When you can see OVER a Suburban
14. You carry emergency supplies and clothing because you never know where you will end up
15. When your Nerf bars battle rocks and win
16. When it rains and you don't care that your tops and doors are off
17. When you drive around to look at Christmas lights topless
18. When you change your plugs in the parking lot at work on a break
19. If your Parts Dept. is on blocks behind your house
20. When you take your Mom wheeling and she has to help you flip the Jeep back onto its wheels again
21. You use an ice-scraper on the INSIDE of the windshield
22. You get more heat from holes in the floorboards than through the heater vents
23. Every page of your repair manual has greasy fingerprints
24. Passengers scream "DON'T ROLL IT!" when you take them wheeling
25. You spend more time under your Jeep than under your significant other
26. Winter comes and your can't remember where you left the roof
27. You spend more on car washes than on insurance
28. Even worse the car wash won't let you in
29. You fix almost everything yourself
30. When you feel sorry for someone in a $60,000 Toyota Land Cruiser
31. When you have all your credit card numbers memorized
32. When you slam the door and chunks of dried mud crumble to the ground
33. If you get asked to pick up your co-workers in a snow storm and get paid for it
34. Your "Significant Other" refuses to get in it
35. You are the only one on the street who doesn't plow their driveway
36. You are dating your mechanic to get a discount
37. You try to run the plow trucks off the road when it snows heavily
38. You can't hear your $200 stereo over the noise of your tires on the highway
39. You have a high-water mark INSIDE the Jeep
40. Any tire that isn't waist high looks like a bagel
41. You carry a set of steps with you at all times
42. You can't sneak into church late because the engine is too loud
43. You carry along enough tools to supply a small garage
44. You nickname your Jeep after the noises it makes or it's most damaging trail accident
45. You carry along a replacement part for every drive component on the Jeep
46. You know how to reinforce the windshield frame near the wiper arm
47. You're constantly getting passed on the highway
48. Your wallet is always empty
49. When you finally wash the mud off, everyone thinks you bought a new Jeep

Re: Any other Wrangler owners?

I have to disagree about the comment about the JK. I had a YJ that we wheeled a lot and it was good..then we got the JK and it is way...let me say again...way better at wheelin', and the 6sp is awesome.
