hi guys :wavey:

my names Tony. bought a 98 wrangler tj last fall and somewhat restored it. i live in ohio so the rust was pretty bad.

gutted the whole interior (which only took about 45 mins lmao) refinished all the plastic, floor pans, new seats, new bedrug carpet.

had the rust repaired and repainted white.

new wheels/tires...31x10.5 bfg all terrain and level 8 15x8 tracker wheels.

new bushwacker 4.75" fender flares. which turned out to be a PITA with all the bolts rusted lol. had to move the flares up a tad in the rear and drill new holes. long story but kinda had no choice. looks fine imo.

anywho heres some pics. i realize it's not a built trail rig but it's def a blast for me and the fam to tear the doors off, top down and cruise around town in. first trip in it was last weekend and we loved it.
