You know you own a rover when...

Sheeple follow you home trying to join the flock. Often.

You keep ordering new parts for your "finished" Rover project.

You smell some burnt oil while driving and you think "was that me, or another car?"

People at the pet store think you have a "Kitty Cat" problem, because all of the litter you buy for the garage.

You wear noise-canceling headphones for highway driving

18-wheelers pass you like you're standing still on the interstate

Your feet get soaked when you drive in the rain

You see someone with a torn belt loop and assume they also own a defender

you're faced daily with the ultimatum to get rid of the truck or the girl...you make your decision, but unfortunately they both remain.

You own more than one.

You own more than one that does not run.

You own more than one that is in pieces.

You own lots of pieces not associated with any particular one.

You know you own a rover when...

...every 12-24 months they tend to "multiply", and there seems to be another Rover mouth to feed.

I have a feeling Ron knows what I'm talking about.

Or my personal favorite: you have a secret Paypal account, with Paypal MasterCard, so you can buy Rover parts without the wife knowing.

You buy wheel bearings by the case

You sell the radio, because you cant hear it anyway over the rattles

You need to wear waterproof shoes just to drive in the rain

(still the best truck in the jungle)

You see someone under your truck in a public parking lot (or your home driveway), and the first thing you say to them is "Hi, i'm (insert D-90 username here)"

When you know the local UPS, USPS and Fedex guys by first name.

When you get home from work and your wife greets you with 'There's a package for you' and you get giddy inside.

When you stop seeing speed bumps.

When you get a rental, and drive over curbs and speed bumps without notice, leaving parts flying and a trail of sparks.

When you see roads where there are none (ie lawns, embankements, medians, etc)

When the first question is always "what kinda of jeep is it?"

When is second question is "is it legal?" (for the RHD crowd)
