New Jeep Owner from Carbondale, IL

Hello all! I have just bought my first jeep this week. I bought a 1999 TJ after wrecking my Isuzu VehiCROSS. I'm excited to be a part of the forum!!

welcome to the forum. sorry about the isuzu, but you'll soon realize that it was for the better. (we're a little one sided here can you tell?)

Welcome and congrates on your purchase. Looks great, What kind of plans do you have for it? Is it going to be your daily driver? Don't forget to wave.

Thanks, Yes it will be my daily driver. i think im going to lift it 2" put Nitto Terra Grappler 33s on it. Then i will add a winch guard in front some rock guards and the lights that attach above the mirrors. Im also going to paint the hard top black and rhino line the floor.

Do your homework before buying "x" brand lift. For "x" size tire. It will save you in the long run.
