New TJ owner needs help

Hi, my name is Dave I live in southern california and I just picked up a 97 TJ my first jeep. I need two front fenders, Hood, and Grill. Shes not in real bad shape but needs love. If you know someone or have some or all of these things that would be helpfull. I picked up some rubicon wheels and tires today for her but looking for a 2.5 spring lift what do you suggest? I will be flat towing this behind my motorhome. I will post picks of her progress. Thanks in advance Dave

welcome. I would see if there is a crown automotive parts dealer in your area. They sell just about anything you need. OR you can Will point you to local shops with the parts.

There is a Jeep wrecking yard in Fontana called Scotties. I have used them, but they should be helpful for body parts.
