2000 budget TJ
I picked this Jeep up in July. It needed some work, but I got it for $1500. 4.0, no rust on the body, not bad!
I gave the flares the lazy torch treatment to turn them black again. The seats were destroyed, but luckily I found a nice 3 pc set for $100 on Craigslist. It had no reverse, only forward gears, so a new trans was in order. I found a supposed 60k mile 32rh at a junkyard for $500, paid a local guy $250 to install it. Now it drives!
The factory soft top was in rough shape, so I went with the Rampage frameless soft top. I installed it easily in about a half hour, and I have been really happy with it so far.
I found a set of 31x12.50x15 BFG MTs mounted on some Centerline Hellcats. I've always loved these wheels. Since the 90s. Lol
I added some XJ front springs, and a 2" BB, along with some 4" WJ shocks that I picked up here.
I modified and installed the Hanson bumper/Harbor Freight winch that I stripped from my YJ before I sold it. I also modified a set of Xenon 6" flares into flat flares. I ordered some 33x12.50 Duratracs to be installed tomorrow. I think they'll fit nicely without a body lift.
