I kinda just jumped in before seeing the newby forum....
I've had my 98 4.0 5-speed TJ Sahara for about 4 years (147k mi). Runs like a champ. I got it so I can turn around in tight places (I'm a photographer who specializes in agricultural stuff. I need to follow them stinkin' tractors without tearing up their fields.)
Don't have any mods planned except some radios.
