Yo guys! (washington)

hey there! i thought that since i look at these forums enough i might as well become a member eh? ya.

so im 16, live in seattle, and i have a white '97 TJ se. its pretty stock, which is sad. it was my sisters but then she got a nice car and i got the jeep, which i loves jeeps so its chill. so far i've got 30x9.5's on it and flowmaster exhaust, for fun haha. oh and im pissed at the people at the tire store for not recommending 31x10.5's, those assholes! haha. i've gone wheelin a few times, doin it more and more. its hella fun.

so quick questions-
good, small, cheap lift kits that wont look weird with only 30" tires. i know you can get the lift spacers for pretty cheap, but are the coils better? i was thinkin 2.5 pro comp coil lift for like 350$$ what are your suggestions?

also, any easy adjustments to the jeep exteriors to make them look better? i see people take the end caps off of the front and back bumpers, that good? I'll post pics of mine so you can tell me what to do soon.


and to everyone who has big lifts and tires and steezy shit. Im soooo jealous of your life!!!!

Welcome to WF! I understand that coils are better, I have the pucks. I don't recommend the pro-comp shocks, I have them, my Jeep rides like a tractor (not all bad - I love my tractor, too), very stiff!

ya what is steezy shit? take a look at the other threads (picture threads are always good). there are a ton of ideas on this forum just have to know where to look. I'm down in portland area and skeet is over in spokane I think that were pretty close to the only NW people around this forum... but welcome to the fun and empty pockets.

That's your opinion. I will say it will make you look like less of a "mall crawler".

Welcome aboard, if you do any wheeling, you can either take the bumper jugs off, or have them ripped off. They are pretty worthless. It's entirely up to you....D

Welcome to the site. I was gathering up every penny & used bargain I could find to do my build on a budget over the past few years. Be patient and your ride will get there
