I bought this 97 TJ about two months ago. It was in bad shape, engine knock, front end popping, brakes were mush, top was ready to dry rot, etc... I have done a lot of work to it and had a few others get dirty along the way too. It's not done yet, but mostly just cosmetics now. Still need to install the smitty tube fr bumper, two new fenders, rugged ridge flares, relocate mirrors, and a fresh coat of beach bum aqua.
