Just got a 2002 tj sport. It's white with a tan top and tan interior. It's only got 39,500 original miles. Had a 1999 sport but got rid of it cause it was getting pretty run down. Tell me what you guys think of it.

Looks great and superb condition. :cool:

Atthehop 12-02-2010 02:38 PM

Looks great, a 99 got run down, it's just broken in.

David1959 12-02-2010 02:43 PM

It Looks great. Love the white and tan. Congrats on your purchase

essie92 12-02-2010 02:44 PM

Thanks and usually yes it is just getting broken in but this one was ran really hard before I had got it and it was needing some love and attention that I just couldn't give. So now got one like brand new

RHazz22 12-02-2010 04:02 PM

congrats looks good, good luck with it

URascal 12-02-2010 04:31 PM

Its too clean.

Work4Mud 12-02-2010 04:33 PM

Looks good man, gotta love a white jeep! I could do without the tan and the chrome though but thats just me.

KeeblerKO 12-02-2010 04:47 PM

Awesome Jeep ya got there. I actually like the cloth on those seats. :D

BCowley 12-02-2010 04:51 PM

Def a nice find, good luck with it. Assuming the power Windows are not standard.

Have the same seats in mine, believe its the standard tan pattern.

Are you a prior jeep owner or new to Jeepin all together? If new,,,, You'll probably wanna start getting some toys for it now. Thats the fun part of owning a jeep (just empty every pocket) . Check out 4wd.com and quadratec for all sorts of parts and Fat Bobs Garage for cheap lifts.

Best of luck. Oh yah, great color choice!!!

Bruck 12-02-2010 05:23 PM

Nice. Did the PO pull off the "Sport" stickers?

fireball 12-02-2010 05:51 PM

DEERE G 12-02-2010 05:53 PM

I want power windows!

jkaufman_95 12-02-2010 10:56 PM

Woah power windows??
And I would take the jugs off the bumpers

essie92 12-02-2010 11:36 PM

Yea it is clean and the PO installed power windows. And they do actually work pretty good. Of course when they go our I will pit cranks back on it but I'll run with it for now. Only thing I'm not liking is it is a 3 speed and has 3.07 gears but its ok I do miss over drive on the highway. Any reason it has a 3 speed? It's an 02 and I thought those came with a 4 speed.

fire239 12-02-2010 11:40 PM

I would MUCH rather have the 3spd 32rh than the 4spd OD tranny. Keep the 3spd cool and out of the water and it will outlast the Jeep......

norville 12-03-2010 05:53 AM

Looks great, I may have to look into that power window upgrade.

essie92 12-03-2010 07:47 AM

What is so much better about the 3-speed? And yea the power windows are nice. I just have to fix them with some quick connecting so that I can remove the doors but no need to worry about it right now with it being winter.

there was a thread discussing the deficiencies of the over drive trannys but cant find it now. problem is that "jeep" poorly geared the o/d. the goal was to improve mpg but instead it shifts into o/d too soon dropping your rpms to 1500- 1800 robbing you of power. and it doesnt even improve you mpg's. i try to turn off my o/d every time i start my TJ. only use on the freeway.

Yes good looking Jeep. White is the best color, but I may be biased. I thought of power windows, but power locks worked better for me due to the weather where I live. I put them in myself and surprisingly it was pretty easy.

Ok that makes sense. I will defiantly stick with my 3 speed then. And it sure is a sweet color but I'm biased too so.. And I would like to get power Locks how did you do it? Do you have a write up on it?
