Introduced myself in the TJ forum... Doing the same here..
Hey! first post, Ive been lurking around the forums for a week or 2, and just registered.
just bought my first Jeep! Picked up a 99 TJ sport 5 spd 4.0.
My step dad has an old CJ with a fuel injected chevy V8, and was my motivation to finally pull the trigger. Always been a bit of a gear head, and always tinker, so I am sure with due time I will be replacing drive trans.. I had a LS1 powered RX7 about 7 years ago, and am a big fan of those chevy v8's..
I picked it up the weekend of Thanksgiving and have been pretty pleased with my choice so far.
Few things I am going to tackle first will be the audio. I am not a fan of the overpowering thumping bass anymore, but I do enjoy quality sound. I have already installed a new sony head unit. I have the basic 2 speaker sound bar, and am intending to upgrade the entire sound bar. Any suggestions? I saw the VDP, and am considering that option..
I am also going to be getting a security console soon, and am wondering if anyone could share some opinions on the Tuffy security insert? or would the Tuffy series II be a better option? or are there better options?
How about the upgrading of my stock suspension to a used stock Rubicon suspension?
I know my way around an engine, but 4wd/off roading and suspensions is a whole new world for me
Thanks in advance for any input and advice guys! I look forward to being a contributing member!
I picked her up in pretty much stock condition.
Ill get pictures up soon!
