my new toy...(pics soon)

hey guys i got my new toy yesterday: 1998 platinum/black GC 5.9 limited. i can now officially say i'm part of the jeep family. the truck is awesome, looks and runs great! the power off the line is unexplainable; pure adrenaline, i can't wait to try it off-road. upcoming mods: clear corner lenses, white face reverse indiglo gauges, front window tint, various audio mods. got it for about 12k with 70k miles on it. will post pics when i get a chance, i haven't even had the car for a full 24 hrs yet, and i'm in love. anyone with advice, suggestions or general comments, feel free to chime in, i need all the knowledge i can get. i love this car, thanks!

i know several people who have the 5.9 also in the '98 zj. look into your trans, has it had work yet? if not, you may look forward to having some $$$ work done. other than that, its a sweet ride. also, look into a new air intake system, the one on the 5.9 is outdated, and too restricitve, the 5.9 is a great engine, but needs some mods to help it breathe easier. i have the 4.7 HO. i raced my friends 5.9, and well, he looked pretty mad in my rearview mirror.
