New to the forum with a TJ

Hi there everyone,

I have been a big car guy for a number of years, but never owned a Wrangler. My business partner bought a 1998 4.0 Sport new, and has had it every since, only logging about 78,000 miles. He was going to trade it in, so I bought it from him for wholesale pricing, and plan to use it as a bad weather driver as well as part time fun ride.

I have had it one day, and already dropped it off for a 3.25" lift, as well as 17" wheels and 33" tires. I should have it back tomorrow and then I will post pictures.

I would like to add a font bumper, rear bumper, rock rails, etc. Any recommendations on the right brands to buy, as well as best places to buy would be appreciated. Once the weather gets a littler warmer, I also want to take the doors off and do the half tubular doors. (not sure of proper terminology, but I will be on here a lot learning!!!)
