I'm a 26 year old Mechanical Engineer that works for an Oil Field service company and serves as an Army NG Engineer Officer. I love all things with a motor. Currently I have a 2007 BMW 335i and just traded my truck in for an awesome 2003 Wrangler Sahara. This is my second Wrangler, had a 87 YJ briefly in College, and drove a lifted 94 Grand Cherokee in High School.
About The TJ:
As said it is a 03 Sahara with 16,300mi, yes you read that correctly, 4.0 5spd with Dana44 rear. The PO installed a 4.5" RE SA lift and did a SYE, not sure on brand, and its running 33" Procomps. As far as I can tell the front and rear bumpers are Smittybuilt classics with a Smittybuilt 8,000lb winch. I am so happy to have a Wrangler again, specially one with such low miles. The PO definitely went the correct route with mods ie SYE and Matching spare tire. I would have gone with a different lift and bumpers but really can't complain. Since the big things are done, his weekend I will be throwing on a catback, new radio with new center console sub to replace the blown one, and wiring for a trailer.
I noticed that the PO did not install the Front Upper Control arms. Can anyone think of a reason they would not do this? Is there anything I should be looking out for?
