Officially Back

Well, after looking for a while I finally picked up a 97 Sahara. It's an auto and I was looking for stick but the auto might not be too bad. Next thing is I have to pull the RV hitch off the front.



I sold the hardtop and traded the full doors for some half doors with two sets of windows and 500 bucks.



After alot of research I ended up going with the new Rough Country N2 4" Lift.





Just a mock up for now. Still have to decide on rims.


The Jeep won't see much hardcore wheeling for about a year. We have a baby due in May and so the most it will see is a little mud here and there to entertain my 8 year old. Future plans include 8.8, 4.88s, lockers, cage and 35s. DJ

Thanks for the Welcome everyone.
I am slowly making it MY Jeep with all my leftover parts from my old Jeep.


And the best mod I have ever mad. Misch Big Boy seat brackets. They move the seat back 4". And with me being a big guy that reall help!

The tow bar was a Pain in the A$$ to get off since it had two padlocks on it that had to be cut off before I could get to the bolts.

Wasn't able to get the bumper off just yet. But I will and hopefully straighten it and cut it down and paint it.
I did pull the headlight rings off and spray paint them with bedliner paint.


I removed(and by removed I mean saw-zalled) the front and rear bumperettes. I also painted the bumpers with bedliner. I am really starting to get nervous about when I put the lift on. Every bolt I tried to remove to take the bumpers or bumperettes off, snapped off. That's why the front bumper is still bent because I couldn't get it off. I ended up having to cut the tow bar off that the PO had on it because it was on with two padlocks. And of course he couldn't find the keys! LOL
It still has the dent but it looks a little better.


The back bumper came out pretty good.



Found a guy that wanted to downsize from 35s so I gave him my 33s.
Leavin with 33s

Returnin with 35s WOOHOO!!!
