I just bought a 1998 TJ Sport yesterday! 80,000 original miles, automatic, red with black hardtop. I've already got an appointment next week for a 1.75" lift (unlifted jeeps just look so...postal to me) and I'll definitely be putting some new and bigger tires on it at the same time - it already has a set of Panther Custom Wheels but the tires look like something off of a minivan. I suppose the PO took the good ones off before selling it.
I'm looking forward to learning from everyone here! New term learned today: "Death Wobble"
