New to me 2000 TJ Sport, what else would you do?
 
Got my TJ about a month ago, been a Jeep person for pretty much my driving life, past owner of a 1993 YJ, Grand Cherokee, XJ, and my parents pretty much always have his and hers. I'm 37 and have a 2010 JKUS for my DD, and this is my weekend toy/dog vehicle.

Here are my specs...

2000 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4.0 4WD Auto

What would you do next?

I hope to learn lots here...I've been a Jeep guy forever, but mechanically I'm a newbie!

Ditch the Pro-Comp lift and install something decent. At least get some new control arms and quality shocks.

Post some pictures! It looks like you already have an awesome Jeep!

How about a spiderwebshade? CB radio? and the winch of course

Winch/ OBA/ and maybe a First aid kit......also no fire extinguisher or recovery gear...not that you need it...but it would be bad time to find out you do...when you don't have it!!

Sorry for the lack of pictures...he's sleeping in the garage at the moment :)

To confirm...is OBA an Air Compressor? That's a good idea, particularly as I don't have a spare yet (looking to get that soon). I'm trying to decide if I want the exogate or some other kind of tire carrier to hold a 35. I'm trying to find a swing that will mount to my Olympic rear bumper (57) that isn't the one they sell, not a fan of that design.

Not sure about the shocks and arms, but there's a bunch of new stuff under there. Sorry to hear your feelings on Pro-Comp. To each his own.

I have the hard top to keep my dog contained (4 month old weimaraner pup), so no open air for now.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Well if you're ever considering having your dog 'in the open air' a Safari containment system would do nicely.

OBA = On Board Air
