Hello all,

My name is Bryan and new to the boards, but have had a few Jeeps.

My first experience with the Wrangler was a 1990 with 2.5L eng - completely stock all around. Had it for almost 2 years. A lot of rust on the frame but always did fairly well off road. Had a lot of issues with the TBI, would stall out randomly. Had it up in Reno and was a blast in the snow and in the mountains.

A few years later, bought a 1996 Cherokee XJ, was an awesome ride. A lot of issues with it, had issues with smog and decided to sell and save up for my current Jeep...

I have had my 99 Wrangler for about a year and a half now, bought it in Arizona and thankfully no rust. Both Jeeps prior had rust issues, so it was nice to finally have a vehicle without it. I was lucky enough to buy it with several upgrades already done - 4" Pro Comp lift, Rancho 9000 shocks, 35in BFG Mud Terr, Banks headers, and front winch plate. The axles are also upgraded, can't remember what he said though about it off the top of my head. I also got a few extra parts with it: both stock axles, a new SYE that I have yet to install, full steel doors, tube half doors, new stock spare tire and rim, all 3 tops - hard, soft and bimini, and a Thule bike rack.

Looking to add some lights, a jack mount, a rear bumper/tire carrier (w/ jack mount maybe?), and a winch in the near future. I'm sure after reading more of the posts though the list will increase.

Anyhow, looking forward to talking with you all.
