Bought our first jeep this weekend
 
1 Attachment(s)
Finally sold my old truck and was able to go and buy our jeep this weekend. It's our first one! :dance:

1998, 4.0L 5sp, W/ 102K miles, Black Diamond lift 2 or 3 inch not sure. It has Wild Country 31's on aftermarket rims, ARB front bumper and a 8K# Warn winch. Both factory hard and soft tops. There is next to no body rust and some lite surface rust on parts of the frame. Dealer said they replaced the front track bar but nothing else other then change out the fluids.

thanks guys, Is there a way to find out exactly what lift it has? One of the shocks still has a black diamond sticker on it. I don't see any spacers one the springs.

You got a decent price? Man, that looks nice!

Skol-Vikes 03-06-2012 08:30 AM

We paid $8,500 for it. Pretty much in line with the other jeeps in same age and mileage in MN.

Looks like a good find. Congrats! Welcome to the family! You're in an exclusive class now.

Take a pic or two of the aftermarket lift components that are installed.

Wow, really nice Jeep. Congrats!

It is a PITA but some springs are marked/stamped somewhere (my Rusty's are). You pretty much have to get under there and look all around to find it.

On another note SWEET JEEP:thumb: Now don't forget to wave:wavey:
