Just bought my first Jeep
 
Picked up a '99 Wrangler today and of course I'm new to the forums. I've always had Mustangs but I Sold my '12 5.0 and bought this since I barely drive. Just wanted to see what you guys think of my acquisition.

99 TJ SE Trim
- 4.0 swap
- 123k on the body, unknown on the motor
- 5 speed manual
- 4 inch lift, new 33' tires, cragar rims, winch, bumper mounted jack, tube front bumper, navigation head unit, 4 fogs up front, rhino lined inside, resprayed paint. no air conditioning

Runs nicely, does not seem to have death wobble, definitely a rough ride but not bad.

just bought some smittybilt seat covers, wrangler and 4.0 stock decals, new shift knob, and door nuts as they were removed.

Picked this up for $6500 cash from a friend of my brother in law. let me know what you guys think. truck is 13 years old so i dont really have high expectations but i've always wanted a wrangler so im pretty excited.

Wow great looking jeep, love the color and looks great with a soft top, you thinking about upgrading your axles??

Welcome to the cult brother.

I need to replace the front 2 02 sensors as theyre throwing a code but other than that no problems. the guy gave me the sensors to replace it with which was nice too haha

It actually has a totally rebuilt dana35 its the oval one so im pretty sure thats the one lol. since this wont really be a hardcore off road rig i will probably keep them they way they are. the most off roading i plan on is to go on the beach which much lesser trucks can handle so anything more might be overkill

This is the right spot. Looks like the side mirrors have been updated to the 03-06 style.

Congratz! Being that it use to be a SE you should have the lower 4:10 gears too which is nice...especially with those 33's.

Jacqui 12-23-2012 02:22 AM

Very nice! What you've got there, sir, is a winner. ;) Great price on it, too. Around here, the Wranglers in that price range are hunks of junk that need a lot of lovin'. You did real well!
