Bought the Jeep mid-January 2010 and began the first of many projects the next day. Previous owner was an older gentleman that bought it from his son a few months earlier. He was going to keep it as a project vehicle, but lost interest. The owners son was the original owner of the Jeep. He's a AC-130 pilot in the USAF.
1998 Jeep Wrangler (Black)
Black paint and an ugly spice soft top that has been switched out to a black safari top for the summer. I've got a black Rampage Bowless top on its way. Pro Comp Crawler bumper in the front, Crown tire carrier bumper in the rear, Savvy gas tank skid plate, and AtoZ Fab rocker guards. A few more pieces of armor coming in the future.
Cragar Soft 8's and 33x12.50r15 Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ's
4" Rough Country X-Series lift with the 2.2 shocks. JKS track bar in the front and Rough Country track bar in the rear. 3/4" spring spacers in the front. Hockey puck bump stops D/T'd into the lower spring perches. Advance Adapters SYE and Tom Wood DC shaft
Standard 4.0L I6 and 5spd manual, nothing special but running good with 124,000 miles on the odometer when I picked her up. Dana 30 up front with an Aussie locker and Dana 44 with the OEM LSD in the rear.
Came with no carpet, but the rest of the interior was in pretty decent shape. I gutted her out and Herculined the interior. Turned out pretty damn good. Added a set of floor mats and bestop seat covers. Need to get a seat cover for the rear seat now that I have the brackets and seatbelts to use it with.

I recently put in a cheap Clarion CZ200 head unit. I replaced the original front speakers with some new 5 1/4" round Pioneers and the rears with some 6.5" Polks. Also have a CB in now for the off road trips.
