Sold the XJ and got a TJ

Hey guys I just bought my 97 jeep tj today. It has four inch lift, arb lockers, superior axels and 87,000 miles for only 5400 dollar. I thought it was a steal. Cant wait to take it out on the snow!

Really! Pics Please.. Great Steal man.. I'm guess it's already built to wheel past the axles, lockers, and lift.. Armor and winch and what not... Either way NICE FIND.. Did I mention PICS Please...

Just traded my XJ in for a TJ as well so welcome to the club

If you are refering to skid plates, there are no skid plates that will have to be a purchase after wheels and tires

WOW.. Never thought I'd hear of Air Lockers and Upgraded axles both before armor.. Either way those axles and arbs alone make it a great find.. I was thinking the same thing about the wheels and tires.. IMO they need to go

I believe I got it so cheap because he thought there was something terriblywrong becasue the rear axle would test due to the bushings in the lower control arms being gone haha so when you accelerate the jeep pulls left
