Noob Here! Pics of the new ride inside!

Hi everyone,

So, I just picked up my first wrangler and I am really liking it so far. I picked it up from a guy for $7,900 and I have the original window sticker to verify all the options. The original owner special ordered it with some good equipment. Specs are:

1998 sport, 80,500 miles on it
4.0 L, 5 speed
optional Dana 44 rear, with Trac- lock!
big gas tank (19 I think), big alternator (100 amp maybe vs 80 amp??)
2 inch spacer lift with sky jacker shocks
31" BFG All terrains (new as of yesterday)






Pics are from my cell phone so sorry for bad quality. anyway let me know what you think. this is my fist wrangler so please feel free to point out anything that I should watch out for or any typical problem areas. Overall I think I got a clean Jeep and I am looking forward to having some fun with it.

Dan

I see you took the pictures when it was at home in its natural habitat.

Have fun with your ride!

No cell phone use at the gas pumps? I think the mythbusters busted that one.

Looks great. As you are now an official Wrangler owner, you are required to wave at all Wranglers that you see. It's the law.

thanks for all the comments. I am really happy with the rig... I will keep the Jeep wave in mind, but when I owned a lifted Cherokee and waved at other cherokees people looked at me like I was retarded, haha. I guess it was too many soccer moms driving the cherokees.

They should put a sticker on the rentals here... tourists NEVER wave back, and it's killing my percentages on the wave count.

its real nice looking. i just bought mine a couple of weeks ago and the only thing i really needed to do was get some brighter lights for backing up, actually just installed it today. theres more i wanna do but that was the most important. you should paint some black stripes on it so it looks like one of those African safari jeeps. how many people have a paint job like that???
