picked up a 99 TJ

i have a slightly lifted bigger tire'd 08 nissan pathfinder 5.6L 4x4 as my vehicle, and the wife has a 12 volvo s60 fwd.

we recently moved from dallas to denver and rather than try to deal with trading her new car, i figured it would be cheaper to get a 'cheap' jeep.
i'm new to owning a jeep, but i've been around 'em alot and even worked at a jeep dealer awhile back.

so picked up a 99 sport, 145k miles (excellent dealer service records) that seems to be in great shape. engine is dry as a bone, no significant rust (nothing under the floor mats for sure), 5spd that shifts smooth, 4.0L for $5500 from a dealer (stickered at 10,988!!! are you kidding me?!?!)

won't be doing too much with it this season, but maybe next season i'll get to a lift and such.

i'm very active on the pathfinder board, contributing alot of how-to write ups and such in my past 3 years of doing stuff to it (rock sliders, suspension lift, replacing body mounts, etc). i hope to gain as much knowledge from here, and maybe even contribute a few things!

here's my new "kid":

and here's my pathy, maybe the jeep will look like this soon
