and your vehicle is the oldest one out of 1,000 cars.

If you have to get the non running FSJ running to move the running FSJ.

If you know for a fact that "It ran when it was parked" But it may not start without tinkering with it.

You can spot the only FSJ part at a swap meet.

If you watch the whole Twizzlers ad every time it comes on because it has a Wagoneer in it....

If "redoing your floors" is something you say more often than you'd like but has nothing to do with your house....

(...speaking of which... )

  • If your friend doesn't seem to understand when you say that zero oil pressure is normal.
  • When you get that inner smile when it fires up happily after the first crank.
  • When you hope to find some WT fender flares without rust.
  • If you hope to find any fender flares for a WT.
  • If your to-do list keeps getting longer despite all of your work done.
  • When every Sunday morning starts browsing adds for a FSJ.

3 years later. Any chance you want to share the spreadsheet that you mentioned? If you have it and the time to send: Thanks!

Heh. Sadly, I can't help you with that. The spreadsheet comment was just a joke.

High quality junk here: intro thread and slow build thread

Did you know? Willys is just Willis spelled differently, but pronounced the same. Neither Willy nor his apostrophe are involved.

If you strategically let brush grow so it will conceal your next FSJ from the neighbors.

If processing enough firewood for the stove in the shop so you can build FSJ’s in winter is more important than fixing the furnace in your house.

If protecting your FSJ parts from the elements is more important than a toilet.

If you have special areas set aside that contain parts for specific FSJ builds in the future.

If you have had more than thirty FSJ‘S during your lifetime.

If you have more pictures of your Jeep on a tow truck than an offroad trail...
If you have ever posted a thread saying how great your truck has been running and later THAT DAY you have to call a tow truck to get it home...
If you had a part that you paid a decent amount of money for, then didn't need it, then couldn't sell it, then GAVE IT AWAY, then broke that EXACT part on your rig...
If Murphy's law terrifies you more than COVID, UFOs, and Russia combined...

-If you start it after sitting for 8 hours at work and the guy next to you say's does that thing pass CA smog?
-If you need to explain to your wife that she needs to remember that park is at the top then one click down is neutral and then another click is drive all because the indicator is broken.
