Okay I unique position I have a 97 TJ already setup with 33" tires NO LOCKERS Original axles and I think gears, Is actually really good shape.. 245000 miles i6 auto and I can pretty much do anything I want to it... OR the wife said I could go out and buy a brand new one already setup with what ever I want on it... So what I'm asking is do I fix up my 97 and deck it out or what I do to it, or Do I buy a two-door or four-door what would I get on it and is it worth buying a new one or the old one better?..

I really need some help here it's a big decision

Well if you get another tj you can keep some stuff off yours and use it on the new one. Also remember the newer jeeps come with more electronic stuff. So when we go trail riding you would have to watch that

I always imagined I'd build up my jeep the way I want it then get a new one and start all over again. I think it's fun to start from a blank slate, much like painting a picture.

IF you do decide to move on to a new jeep and want to sell your current one, give me a heads up. Ever since our Withlachoochee ride Tammy's been wanting her own and she wants a green one. Sounds like a perfect match!

That's cool! Can't wait to see it when you're finished with it. We picked up a 97 Wednesday and will be going down the same path with fixing her up

Looks clean.. Hopefully no rust, is see some that are in ruff shape. Up at advanced auto they have a turtle wax stuff like armor all but thick and heavy it was about 10 bucks but it will make you'll plastic black again, one bottle has lasted me a year now. I just wipe them down after I wash it and seems to last..
