Glad you re-posted that photo here. It's a great illustration of what we're saying. Your interior would have been even less wet had you installed a duster rear cover... ;) though that boxy thing in...

I know you won't have enough time for this to help you tomorrow, but I suggest you purchase and install the upper door surrounds. Then your bikini top can attach to them, and you'll have no gaps...

Atta boy! Now you just need to install some upper door surrounds (so that your safari top can attach to them) and a rear duster cover. This will make you nearly waterproof for times when you're...

A winch is a funny thing. It's not like your engine; it isn't being used constantly whenever you are in your Jeep. Instead, it just sits there on your bumper--perhaps for weeks, months, or maybe...

When I first bought my TJ (over four years ago), I swapped in a Magnaflow full-size muffler for some more noise. This did give the Jeep a deeper tone, which was a step in the right direction, but it...

Okay, got it. Let's take a look.

The VIN you sent me returns as a black 1997 Wrangler Sport 5-speed. This confirms it did originally feature the 4.0L six cylinder engine you see under the hood. ...
