Well, after drivin' 4x4's since 1979 at age 55 finally got my first jeep. A 1997 Sahara TJ with 174,000 miles on her. Needless to say the first thing I did was put a 4" Rough Country suspension lift on her. Next will be 35's. I only paid $4,200 for her and she is very mechanically sound. Being a Marine and Army veteran the TJ gives me the feeling I'm back in the Corps behind the wheel of the old military jeeps. It's so cool in the summer with no roof over my head...sort of like ridin' the Harley but with tunes! Lots of good info here and already I've found out why water comes in on the passenger side under the dash, faulty intermitten dash lites going off and on...the usuall TJ faults. Man..this Forum is great. Well...got to get back to learin'...lots to catch up on. Semper Fi!
