2000 Tj

Well I've had it since July 3rd of this year (2008) and so far unfortunately I've not been able to put any real modifications on it aside from 31" tires. Bought it with 53k miles for 10,000$. I6 5 speed with the D44 in the rear. Do have a lift in the plans, as well as swapping the front to a D44 as well and locking the front and rear, but the whole college student thing is bit of a money hindrance. So until I hit the lottery it's simply things, like the 2005 head unit swap I did so I can have a 6 dish in dash that plays burned cd's, CB Radio, and the fire extinguisher mount I made that attaches to my sound bar. Hopefully within the next year I can get around to lifting about 3-4 inches and clearing 33's. Until then I'll crawl around stock.
Pardon the quality of the photos, they were taken with my camera phone.

Run up to Blairesville if you get a chance, Beasley Knob is good stuff and they've got trails that'll challenge just about any rig. Course it's a long drive for ya being down in Macon, but well worth it. I'm actually in Louisiana until further notice, helping the parents get their house sold so they can get out of Hurricane Land. By June 2009 I should be up around Norfolk Virginia somewhere though. We'll see I suppose. And yea Bulldog, amongst all the people obsessed with their trucks, there's still a few of us Jeepers around haha

When I was in Roswell we'd go up to Beasley Knob every weekend we could. Fun Stuff up that way but it's a long drive for you. Most of the trail riding I know of consists of the North GA Mountains.... actually all of it does haha.

Reminds me of mine. I just got my '00 a couple months back with 31" BFG A/T with the rear 44. It surprisingly capable just as it is.

Have to agree there. I've been able to keep up with everyone on all the trails without skipping a beat, that is with the exception of dragging a few times. Couldn't be any happier with it and it's only going to get better.

Thank ya, I gotta go back and rewire all that though, it's so FUBARed it's ridiculous. Damn things don't work for nothin. Had the ones on the bumper but the one time I let a friend borrow it because their vehicle was at the shop, he decided as a nice gesture he'd take it to the car wash. Well he brought it through an automatic one and it broke the mounts, had em epoxy'd on but one popped out on the highway, so I ripped em out. Saving for some good Hella ones now. Probably gonna spend the better part of tomorrow tuning my CB and working on the lights in the fenders.
