For example, they have a black '03 sport, that looks very similar to the one I got last year (mileage, features). A1 is asking...

No one waves in the western burbs. I return every and instantiate many (even to JK's ;), but I grow weary.

Then again my perspective is rather skewed - my other car is a vette and you never, ever...

Sounds like a nice deal.

If the vibration isn't coming from the engine or trans, it can probably be readily taken out with new tires/suspension mods. Wit a non-matching tire that alone may do it....

Yep, mine is still running like a top, no problems. It's a little higher than when I got it now ;-) I think I got a keeper, now that it's broken in.

Have there been any suspension modifications to...

Um yeah, sure. Half doors weigh less than half what full doors do. Half doors and sliders for me, I hang em on my wall while I'm out and about. Good luck hanging full doors like that.

Daily driver for me right now in northern Illinois. My '03 is a great driver in the winter and allows my C6 convertible to hibernate for the winter.

No offense, but if you missed flashing yellow lights, you deserved a ticket (as would I in the same situation).

Stoplights are red and don't flash. Please don't miss any of those

Good luck hunting and enjoy the chase.

I'd recommend checking with Jeff at the jeep store in Rockford, but IIRC you had a bad experience with it so it may be out. I'd also recommend an inspection. And I'd really think about an I6.

should add that 265/75-15 is already pretty close to a 31" tire (30.6). You ain't gonna fit much more without a lift, and you may want to regear.

Next step up for you might be a 33 and a 3+ lift

I think consensus on the street is 31x10.5x15 and they should fit nicely on stock rims. You may want to add a 2-3" lift before going offroad.

Myself, I just picked up this size in the BFG Mud...
