New to Forum, but longtime Jeep owner

Hello all,
I didn't realize how old my Jeep really was until just now. Wow, getting teary eyed.
OK, so I've owned my 98 TJ Sport (dana 44 in back) since she was new.
I had owned a full size Bronco while stationed in Iceland, so I new what I wanted.
Picked her up while I was stationed in Italy. She's been sporting 32's most of her life and about 6 years ago got a hard top. That's coming off soon and probably for good. It acts like a giant funnel when it rains, thanks to the son. Protective stuff...Warn bumpers and tire carrier, spare air under the hood, xdoctor rocker guards and other protective bits underneath. HIjack, trench shovel, pair of boards, but no winch. Go figure.

Anyway, Kids are well into college now and I'm starting to see glimmers of funds to give her some much needed overhauling. I let my son abuse her for about a year or so until I couldn't take it anymore. Got him a Ranger to go destroy. He diligently tries.

So first up is the interior.

I probably was on this forum many years ago, but thought I'd say hello.
