New Jeep Owner in California!

Hey guys, I don't own a jeep personally, but my uncle does and he is very interested in fixing it up. He has a 98 Wrangler Sahara...I was wondering if you guys could explain what TJ, or CJ meant...I kind of want to know what specific forum or topic I belong to...He has a dark green, I believe four door, Sahara with a hard top. I will be helping him out with his car as much as I can...I know quite a bit about imported cars, but i'm completely noob with his jeep...any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
-Martin

haha yeah that was what I was thinking too...I drove it around and I already love the way it feels...mainly cause I drive a lowered 2000 accord coupe...but yeah i'm going to start helping him out with knowledgable info on his car...One of the questions I have is with the shift knob...he has a manual transmission, and his knob is pretty nasty...he wanted to get a new one but not factory...any one on here change theres out for an aftermarket one? If so what size or what company should we go for?

There are lots of aftermarket knobs out there. Something that seems popular for jeeps is something called rock knob.

Plenty of these guys will be able to help you out with that.

Aftermarket Parts

There are two excellent aftermarket companies out there that are tremendous - Quadratec and 4Wheel Drive Hardware. Also take a look at Rusty's Offroad. Lots and lots of stuff. Get a copy of the Quaratec catalog and go to Jeep heaven.
