You just described my LIFE! We haven't plowed our driveway in at least 5 years, just lock them in and drive. Got stuck in the driveway yesterday, drift was deeper than I thought. And washing doesn't help, I use the mud to keep people from seeing the holes in the body, helps with an inspection, no one wants to crawl under it with mud dripping off. We do go shopping during snowstorms, there's no one in the store to make a line. Aaaah, the joys of jeep ownership. Yes, JEEP stands for Just Empty Every Pocket, but it also stands for Just Enough Essential Parts. BTW, I have not been able to work on my vehicle because ALL my tools were in the jeep, which was at another friends house. Nice post, keep 'em coming!

54. No one uses your parking spot at work because it's caked in mud.
EVERYTIME it rains while I'm at work my parking spot ends up looking like a small bog!

#3 and #24 are the most familiar to me. My Haynes manual was so dirty I went and bought another copy. And did I throw away the old one?? NOOOO!! I just keep the old one in the Jeep; after all, I did mark up the vacuum diagram with all the lines that they forgot to draw in./wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif As for #3, I got a nice "beauty mark" on my passenger side rocker panel, thanks to a cedar stump that I didn't see!!/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gif/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif

Hell, they're funny. . .but they're true!

How about:

55. Winterizing your daily driver involves the usual stuff plus three rolls of duct tape and buying a new set of long johns.

57. When you take buddies on a new trail you can show them how many times you've been there by your paint scraping and dent marks on that one %$^#! rock.

Happy Jeepin'

61. When it snows out and you are trying to find a parking spot in a busy parking spot where there is no space up close! You Just make your own space by parking right in the front row on top of one of the snow piles :)
