New to me '02 TJ

I jumped at the opportunity to buy my dad's jeep when he decided to sell it. I jokingly say it was his mid-life crisis project.

He and my uncle were members of a jeepin club in Washington State (where I grew up) called Jolly Jeepers. I've ridden/driven with them before on occasion. Some really steep gnarly stuff up in the high country. I am shipping it out from Washington State to Toronto where I am living.

The Jeep was lifted 1.5" BL, 2.5" Rancho SL. 33" tires, 456 gearing. Winch, plenty of under armour, bumpers, yada yada...

I really don't know a whole lot about jeeps or auto mechanical, but I am a handy person (gut renovated a house doing all the electrical/plumbing myself which passed all inspections).

I have a list of what was already modified at work.

First thing to be upgraded are flares. The stock ones are bleached out from the sun. I am putting Metalcloak Overlines on it.

I threw a picture of my other hobby in there just cause.
