My new to me 1998

Hey there everyone,

Just bought this 1998 Wrangler 4.0 Sport from my business partner. He bought it new back in 1998, and was going to trade it in, so I took it. He never did anything to it and barely even drove it. It has 75k miles and was fairly clean. As soon as I got it last week I put the 3.25" lift on it, wheels and 33" tires. I have been fooling around with the bedliner spray for the past two weekends. I have sanded any rust on the frame and undercarriage, and sprayed everything. Sprayed the front bumper, headlight surrounds, and wheel wells. Next up are fog lights, new headlights, tinted plastics, tinted windows, and maybe bumpers.

I've had a ton of cars, and this thing is sooooo much fun!

Here are a few pics.

Car drives pretty darn close to stock. Maybe a little power loss, but your not going to set any speed records with one of these anyway. No vibration at all. Put about 300 miles on it this week since the lift and tires, and no issues.

Nice looking Jeep. I've got a 98 Sport and we enjoy driving it. It's a mountain Jeep and it has never failed us. We're now in the process of putting in Tru-trac's in both the front and rear differential. They're ordered and on the way.
