I finally bought a Wrangler TJ after wanting one for many years.
it is a 99 TJ Sport 4.0, 5 speed manual with only 14,300 miles!
When I first saw the ad, I thought it was a typo, but after looking at the Jeep, I realized it was owned by an older gentleman who only rode it occasionally as a toy.
It seems to be in great mechanical shape, with fluids, hoses, and belts changed recently. It does have some cosmetic issues from sitting outside for 13 years. It's a shame it wasn't garage kept, or it would look showroom new. The interior does look like new.
It even had the original tires, which were severely dry rotted. My first mod was to get some nice wheels and 255x70x16 tires, then brakes worked on.
Second mod was a new set of upper door skins. Next mod is to get a frameless soft top.
The only issues (other than cosmetic) I am having is:
Fan speed only works on high. Seems like a resistor problem from what I read on this forum.
HVAC selector switch does not seem to work. AC is on constantly. I am hoping it is only the switch.
Some idiot painted the fender flares black without removing them from the Jeep or even using tape. I hope I can remove the flares and somehow remove the excess black paint from the original finish.
Other than that, every thing else seems to work great.
I am enjoying this excellent forum, and look forward to learning a lot more about my new toy, which is also my daily driver.
