funny story... how i got my jeep

ok i had recently bought a 97 tj i work at a C D J dealer in the service dept (tech.) i love it but i hate it any way this guy came in and come to find out he works with my dad (anyway) sorry i get off topic a lot!! ok... 97 tj 4.0 standard and 35's with a six inch lift and he had a noise in the rear end when turning come to find out he mowed the grass at his gf house and he blew grass all over her driver way and she bitc*ed him out for doing it he got mad and b4 he left her house she told him don't you dare run over my garden hose !!! and he said " o I wont" so he turned around in her yard when all hel* broke loose he dumped the clutch and tore the living shi* out of her yard but broke the rear end in his jeep baby it to me and i thought for a whial and in the back of my head i was thinking spider gears but i thought it had a posi i run and options list by the vin and it doesn't have a posi it's the spider gears (140.00) he doesn't wanna deal with it so b4 i send him up front to a salesman i ask him what would you take for the jeep the way it sets ( iam not going to tell you what it cost me but just to let you know it's highway robbery he also gave me his old set of 33's with chrome american racing wheels and BFG's so now i have a 97 tj on 35's and my 95 camaro both about the same color haha its the green thing lol team green

looks good, replace the rear dana 35 with a 44 or a ford 8.8 (i assume its a 35 b/c i dont think the 44 owuld have broken so easily)

and btw what did u pay for it, was it less than 9 grand?
