1997 Jeep Wrangler Sport Sport Utility 2-Door 4.0L

Heads Turn When You Drive this Jeep!

I am selling my 1997 Jeep Wrangler 4x4 Sport TJ (automatic transmission). It is sad to have to part with this bad @$$ Jeep. I am selling my "ol bud" because my new job has me
on a long commute each way and have bought a family car with really good gas mileage. Sigh... So it is time to let someone else enjoy this great vehicle.

Let me tell you this is truly a Jeep Jeep, nicely tuned exhaust sound is like music to the ears and if that didn't get everyone's attention, the tunes you choose to blast will.

This Deep Blue TJ has a fully upgraded sound system that can rock a great picnic party at the park the highs are crisp and sharp and the bass can hit pretty low. I mainly listen to classic rock and it sounds amazing!!

The body is in great shape only a couple small rust areas which I have detailed in the photos; other than that the rest of the body is in great shape.

There are many upgrades i have done along the way (listed below) and have a list of some more I was planning on getting to but never got to them, all cosmetic mainly.

This jeep is reliable and has been well taken care of since I have owned it. It is great in the winter time when you can just throw it into 4WD and drive perfectly.

I have all the receipts for work done and parts purchased for the jeep.
Miles: 159,500 original miles. My wife bought this for me 4 years ago and I have gotten great use out of it and did many upgrades. It has been garage kept since I have owned it.

The accident that the jeep was in, took place this past summer in a gas station parking lot. A guy rolled into the Jeep and cracked his plastic bumper. Not a mark on the Jeep! The hit was at about 2mph. There was nothing to fix on the Jeep.

UPDATES/UPGRADES:
New Best Top™ Soft Top with tinted windows (Purchased in 2010)
2 new upper doors with lightly tinted windows (Purchased in 2010)
5 New Wheels 15x8 Baja Champ Black Wheels (Purchased in 2011)
New In-dash Alpine Receiver with iPod 30pin adapter (Adapter is in glove box so that is where you can put the ipod)

1 Kenwood 10" Subwoofer
New Chrome Front Bumper (Summer 2012)
Pair of KC fog lights with black covers (in 2012)
Replaced 2 upper ball joints and 2 lower ball joints in 2010
