1. I would never buy a JK/JL ....means ....I have dumped so much money in this TJ I can't possibly finish it AND afford a newer model .

2. When my 4.0 pukes, I'm doing an LS swap- means - my 4.0 will never quit ,so I know I don't have to figure out a V8 swap, which I can't possibly make work anyway. When my 4.0 does finally quit, the entire chassis will be so slap worn out that a V8 swap would be be even dumber.

3. Honey, TJ's are so cheap to build ....means ..compared to say , building a shopping mall , they are fairly cheap.

4. I am not afraid of ever having death wobble ...means ..I attempted to regear it , and doubt the wheels will ever be back on it .

5. My TJ gets incredible fuel economy ...means ..it isn't even running . See the Cranks but doesn't start threads.

6. My lift kit is a custom build ...means ... Rough Country didn't send everything ,so I still have some old parts on it.

7. I could live in my TJ if I needed to ..means ..this thing has got me on the edge of divorce, so I'm considering living in it.

8. My wife loves my TJ ....means ...you are single , and don't even have a wife or a TJ.

9. I'm doing a modest build ..means ...I just got an equity line of credit and the wife doesn't know the damage I'm about to do to our finances.

10. None of those guys on the forum understand my situation .. means ...we likely don't even understand our own problems , let alone yours.

😁😁😁😁 All in humor.

Or do like the wife does, hang stuff in the closet for months then bring it out and you can "this part, it's not new I have had for months just never got around to installing it"

You lost me on 1. I honestly think the JK and JL are not as good as the TJ. 🤷‍♂️ Funny list though!

16. Real men drive with the top down/doors off - nature is my air conditioning...means...I don't have air conditioning, but there have been a few days where I really wish I did.

17. Fuel efficiency? It's not about miles per gallon, it's about smiles per gallon...means...I absolutely love driving my Jeep, but I will continue to search the forums on how to improve gas mileage.
