This girl finally got her Jeep!!

Hey guys! I'm so happy to finally be able to join this forum after years of searching for a Wrangler to call my own. I've wanted one since I was about 5 years old (waited 20 years!) but I finally got my hands on one in November 2012.

It's a 1998 TJ / 4.0L 6cyl / 5 spd.
I was determined to get one with the 4.0L engine and manual transmission. He's got 200k miles on him but I love him to death and I'm quite willing to replace whatever's necessary over the years- including the engine.
Located on Long Island, NY.

Got some 31" tires. Now looking at lifts and a soft top for summer.

Haha well I don't know much yet but I started with the bigger tires and what a difference that simple step made.

What do you think of this Rustoleum Bumper/Trim paint? Went to Home Depot tonight and they didn't have any Krylon.

Welcome to the forum!

I have a 2000 TJ and elected to use a 2" bushing lift, 1" body lift and 33x12.50's to get the 4" I was looking for without disturbing the suspension or steering geometry... that was 12 years ago and no problems thus far.

Welcome to the forum, and the (often expensive) adventure that is owning a Jeep! Looks like you've got a great start. I love my '97 TJ. What're your plans? Daily driver, weekend wheeler?

'97 TJ, lots of little modifications, 31's on stock axles now. Destined for 1-tons and 38's on a custom 4-link.

I love my TJ! It's my main vehicle so it's a dd but I want the ability to have fun off-roading. Plus I want to make it look badass (well, more than it already is..).

Replaced slave cylinder and drum/cylinders on rear wheels.
Buying front seats/brackets (my seats are worn, brackets are rusted and wobbly) from a wf member parting out their tj this week.
Just got my Spidertrax wheel spacers today.
Need to figure out why horn won't work.

Little steps I guess.
