Checking in from Northeast Florida!

Hi Everyone.

Relatively new member from Northern FL. I currently have two TJ's and a disappearing bank account!

I bought a 97 a couple of years ago without doing my homework. It has a V8 conversion, that wasn't exactly done correctly by the previous owner. Unfortunately I didn't have a lot of experience, or any other Jeeps to compare it to before I bought it. I have learned quite a bit from the forums and from my mistakes.

About a year ago, I purchased a 03 Rubicon off of an insurance website. I had aspirations of swapping the axles, transfer case, etc into my 97. I didn't get to see the jeep in person before bidding on it. Once it was delivered, I found that it had been modified extensively. I could not just swap the axles into the other due to a long arm triangulated suspension, so I decided to fix the Rubicon..

So now I have two.. and can't decide whether I want to sell either!

I really appreciated all the advise and help that is given on this site. It has saved me a substantial amount of time and money.. If only I had joined before purchasing!
