Sweet jeep! I say keep the front clip... newer is over rated. I would definitely trade my 99 for an XJ with wood sides (Briarwood?) assuming it had 60K miles like mine of course! The older front ends look better with brush guards and stingers too IMO. Love the color too... 2K well spent!

good buy man. I've always loved the green ones. All that rust is going to be your biggest issue. I'd say keep the front clip, no need to replace what ain't broken. The older ones definitely look sick with brushguards/winch/stinger/etc. I'd focus more on upgrading those u-joints all around, and start swapping all the fluids; diffs, transfer case, trans, engine oil, etc. And working on a tune up. Making sure the things gonna run, and STAY running would be my top priority (IMHO) Just make sure nothing is going to break/snap on your first trail run, THEN think about the cosmetic things you'll want to do. But all-in-all... great platform for a build.

Well lookin under it today at the car wash I noticed the rear leafs were on top of the axle, so I guess one of the previous owners did a SOA on it, or is this normal with it on top? Clunkin sound also comin from the rear during decel so I am guessing I need to put some U Joints in this thing, fun times!!

Check your read diff backlash as well. Ujoints could also cause some noise.

Dunno how to check backlash, and U joints seem fine, this noise is getting louder, it's like a rattling sound that I only hear when I let up off the gas. It might still be there while I am driving but between the tires and wind I can't hear much of anything else I hope I ain't tearing anything up by driving with this noise. Anything else to look for?

wheel it



Having the rear sway bar not there doesn't mean its an upcountry. My Jeep is only a sport and didn't have a rear sway bar from the factory.

my guess on your lift is about the same as the other guesses here. i'm jealous. i'd LOVE it if my jeep were on 33's with (what looks to be) no rub. congrats, man. you stole that thing. ;]

and for your lock on the door that wouldn't open:

happened to me. from what i've been told, it happens occasionally. the mechanism in the latch for the lock sticks. just gotta get a screw driver or two in there at the same time and move it manually, and then it'll be good for a while.


these posts look a little older, so i'm not sure if any of this info matters, but i figured it MIGHT help. at least on the lock.
