You know your an off-roader...

...when you are cleaning the interior and you ask yourself "how did mud get there?"

When you get mud etc on the interior and its still there almost a year later..

You've slept under your wheeling rig more than you've slept under you wife :D

When someone's jaw hits the floor after asking what you did this weekend and you say you "removed both axles from the truck, rebuilt suspension, built a new steering setup, and replumbed my brakes...it was a pretty laid back weekend"

Or in my real life case...when none of your neighbors look you in the eye when they walk past and you're standing in front of your rig

when a loud pop emanates from beneath the vehicle and your passenger says "what the hell was that!" and you respond "meh...we're still moving it's all good...wait...can i stop? yep...we're good"

parts of your body flop around in the wind and you're only thought is "hmm...better throw a zip tie on that"

Wish I had a dime every time that has happened to Sampson when one of the Zuess fasteners came loose or more accurately, I forgot to fasten one. You don't notice it until your on the freeway and it looks like a bat wing flapping.

When you have Tire tracks in your yard going between trees , house and fence.

And even worse with lockers and rear one is welded.

You think spending $40 on a pair of jeans is expensive but have no problem spending $1000 on a set of tires.

You have more money in tools in the garage then you do in furniture in the house.

When people ask where you went on vacation and you have to explain where that place is.

When you look forward to the journey as much or more then the destination.

...When you call AAA, they know exactly what vehicle and already have all the info of what vehicle is in need of a tow...

...You up your AAA every year in the middle of your billing period with them, so you can get the 200 mile towing plan at half price which is also the beginning of wheeling season as your going to use it..

...Running into people you know in the middle of nowhere becomes more frequent...Does this mean it's no longer the middle of nowhere?...:D

...One of your friends tells you, someone they know met you in the middle of nowhere..

Your better half and your mother in law pull weeds in the back yard, and they find spare parts for the X.

You know you are an Off Roader when..

...When you can't find tall enough jack stands..:(

...When you have a pile of axle shafts...

...When you are on the Forums scheduling upcoming trips and you get your new offroad magazines and they show your previous trips..
