My First Jeep in 14 years

Hi,
I drove home my "new to me" 99 lifted TJ Sahara this past weekend. My last Jeep was a 1990, and was a blast as an 18 YO. Now that I'm in my 30's this Jeep will not be my DD, but will be a well loved vehicle. I can't wait to drive through a foot of snow this winter.

Let me know what you think.

The PO put on some skinny 33" A/T's. Those might need to get switched out soon. Here is a pic from when I picked it up:

The PPO cut off the rear section of roll bar to make the jeep look more like a truck. I really hate him for doing this. How hard is it to swap out a roll bar system of a junk yard jeep?

The roll bar system is generally just bolted on with a star bolt, depending on the model and year. Should be very easy to swap out.

Local salvage yard is selling me the Roll Bar complete for $250. Sounds like a deal to me.

not bad at all, did you post through the forum to see if anyone had a spare they were up for seperating with? might be able to get a better deal.
