Hey guys, I've been looking for a tj for a while now,had a few funny test drives (got in and the guy said "its a little wobbly" and it was more wobbly than the others with comparable lift and tires, i got out, and immedieatly noticed the sway bars were disconnected, and hee didnt even realize it).
Any couple weeks ago picked one up. I read through the entire Cheap, easy , fun, creative mods and did a few, i bedlined my fender flares, mirrors, and door handles, and painted my headlight bezels blackanc my centercaps and the wheel wells. I paid 5,000 for a 98 tj sport with 132000, a 2.5" coil spacer lift, and nearly new 31 MT/Rs and the best part is its Chili pepper red! . Im pretty sure I got a great deal especially with it having no rust, and it only needing a new top. The guy did help me out on the price a little because he knew I was 16 and buying my first car.
I do have a question for you guys though, I have $300 dollars, what is the best mod I can do. I was thinking about a few KC lights or maybe a front bumper, or some quick disconnects, or tube fenders (do you think they would look weird on a smaller jeep?), or maybe replace the springs and BB with some 2.5" lift springs, or if their is something else, let me know. my neighbor welds so I was going to have him help me make some rock sliders/steps (my mom cant get in the jeep). Please be as specific as possible for brands and things you suggest, Thanks Guys!
the day i got it
how it is now
