2002 TJ High School "Build always in progress"
edit: FIRST OFF: I should tell you, this thread starts off lame, then gets cooler and cooler as I figure out what the right upgrades and mods are.
About 2.5 years ago I bought a 2002 Jeep Wrangler X. I was 16 and it was my first car. This thread represents the progress I have made with it in the last year, and the great times I have had with it. It's nothing intense but I am proud to say I paid for everything you see in the pictures. I work every day in the summer making $12.00 an hour landscaping. The rest of the year (now) I am attending military school, or out at sea on our 540' training ship, so please bear with me! I will try to make the thread up to date ASAP.
As a kid I had always seen Jeep's driving around and thought it was awesome how people took the tops AND the doors off. My dad did the final convincing I needed while searching for my first car. I ended up finding this 2002 Wrangler X (6 cylinder, 5 speed manual transmission) in almost immaculate condition. It had 137,000 miles. Based on the shape it was in, and the fact that it had a bulletproof 4.0L, I decided to buy the jeep for a little over $7,000 (almost all of my life savings LOL).
