New Jeep!!!

You may have seen my post a couple of weeks ago saying that i was getting a new jeep. It's a 98 wrangler sport with the 4.0 liter and auto trans, has 120,000 miles on it and runs great. I bought it from a friend who just got a new avalanche and was wanting to get rid of the jeep. He didn't take very good care of it, its never been washed, vaccumed out, or even wiped down in the 10 years that he had it. Anyways, here's a few pics after a weeks worth of fixing, cleaning, and polishing on it (not even close to done yet).





Not wanting to put too much money into it but feel free to leave comments and suggestions. Also i'll probably be selling it before too long and was wondering a good asking price. I'll be putting all new brakes and having it completely serviced before selling it..

Nice Jeep. Hardtop with halfdoors, huh? Don't see that too often. You should keep it though. Where in KY are you? (approx)

Nice Jeeps, I like the early TJs like yours. Since the previous owner didn't take care of it externally, it probably needs its axle, transmission, and transfer case lubes changed as well. Enjoy that new Jeep!

Hell I wish my paint looked 1/2 that good...maybe all the dirt protected it.

Hey neighbor! You need to hook up with the bluegrass 4x4 club in Owensboro... Very nice guys and they'll show you the ropes about the Jeep! You just missed their first annual cruise in Saturday...
