I have been lurking the forums - but am finally official. I sold my CJ5 25 years ago to pay for my wife's wedding rings. It became time for a replacement (Jeep - not wife). 1-30-12 I finally sealed the deal on a 97 TJ with 86k miles - one owner garage kept bone stock Wrangler from NC.
I did not realize how much I missed my Jeep - wih no disrespect intened for my 93 Cherokee Sport or my youngest son's 94 Cherokee Sport.
I am going to drive her as is for a while - and carefully consider any mods.
I'll wave if I pass you - promise!
