New Member here, some pics of my jeep
 
I picked up my first jeep last month and hit the ground running.

Bought a stock 1997 4.0 Manual with 113k for $4500


Stock (minus the fender flares)

Next up is new seats, and center console. Then I have to stop the bleeding for a while.

Anyways, new guy, checking in...

Congrats! That is a great looking Jeep! How much did the Rhino lining run you?

zpratt4 03-23-2010 06:22 PM

Thanks, local place did it for $450. Much nicer and quieter than the factory carpet.

That is an excellent price. Rhino lining is on my VERY long list of things I want to do to my Jeep. However, it is toward the bottom seeing as my Jeep is a 2010 and I can't yet justify to the wife me ripping out the carpet!

Man that garage is a mess :)

Hotwire 03-23-2010 07:10 PM

Hey sj, did you know that a clean, spotless, uncluttered shop is the sign of a sick mind.

Oh crap, I just described myself.

sj pat 03-23-2010 07:12 PM

described me too

gajeepdawg 03-23-2010 07:28 PM

congrats! Good deal as well. The market around here has gotten insane. Hard to even find a four banger for less than $5k. High miles 6 cyl are in the 8k range right now and thats for a older sport or x.

lol, yeah it was. I spent a couple days cleaning it up after I did the lift. Between my camaro and the jeep, i have had a ongoing project in there for over a year.

Nice to have all my tools out of rolling carts and back in toolboxes where they belong. I can actually find things now! :D

aghostinside 03-23-2010 10:47 PM

Looks good. Sometimes I wish my jeep was red.

Welcome to the forum! Nice looking jeep! Where in NC are you located?

Blazin420 03-24-2010 06:56 AM

nice lookin jeep how do the tires perform in the mud? I'm looking into Dick Cepek DC-2's.

G-Pur 03-24-2010 07:29 AM

Nice rig, and welcome to the addiction. I'm glad to see the DC2's on a Jeep. I just bought some, but they haven't arrived yet. They look pretty badass.

Wally Meyers 03-24-2010 09:11 AM

Looks great. Enjoy.

ryt2112 03-24-2010 09:25 AM

That's looking really good! Quite a difference from when you got it. I think Rhino lining is going to be one of the next 3 things I do to the Jeep as well... That just looks good.

mrcarcrazy 03-24-2010 09:26 AM

Quite a Transformation. Good looking Jeep, looks like you got a fantastic price.

I really need to buy a shop.

pking911 03-24-2010 09:30 AM

I havent had a chance to take it out yet. The reviews on the Pro-Comp Xtreme Mud Terrains is that they are great in mud, but unlike most mud tires, very quiet and good in rain/snow.

So far, I can confirm they are super quiet (for a mud tire) and great in the rain.

Did you get 8" or 10"? I was at 4 wheel parts yesterday getting an alignment and I saw a guy with my exact same tire/wheel setup only he had the 8" wheels.

Didnt look nearly as good without the deep offset. I highly recommend the 10" wide version if you didnt get them.

I really need to buy a shop.

me and my brother rent that one for $500 a month, including power and water. Way more space than we need, 3 bay doors and 1 lift.

My brother owns a wrecker company so he uses it mostly for impounds but it is great for working on our projects.

I wish I could help it. When I pick up the jeep from getting an alignment at 4 wheel parts today, I am putting in an order for the Smittybilt XRC seats, Rugged Ridge Rear Seat and Smittybily Nerf Bar.

I just need to decide if I want to go with all black seats or grey to match the interior trim. I'm thinking grey will be better in the sun? Anyone have any input on which way I should go?

In only a month I have spent more on upgrades than I did the Jeep:rofl:

nater344 03-25-2010 09:44 AM

Nice job!

Is that a M3 I see in the last pic?
