Oh nice! If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay? I just picked up my 98 sport last month for $4900 with 113k, hard top and soft with 2 inch susp lift, 31" BF AT. I have been loving mine ever since I picked it up. Welcome to the forum.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys, and possibly gals. This jeep has 98,215 miles, hard top, soft top, half doors, full doors, 31X10.5x15 AT tires, 4.0L 5 speed, 2" reciever. The jeep has a sahara interior (idk if that matters) for $3,800.00 got a smokin deal on it! I'll post some pics of it both in here and in the member riggs! It's a blue gray in color but the hood and front fenders have faded a little so im affraid it's going to need a paint job, idk what im looking at for $$$ for a descent job

What kind of gun did you have in your hand when you negotiated that deal?

^^ Haha, love the poser pics! ^^ (We've all taken them)

Congrats, that's a heck of a deal as the Jeep looks to be in great condition too.

I really like those wheels and headlight bezels. Sweet!
