98 TJ "Zeus" Build Thread

This is a steel blue 98 TJ and it is my first car. I have only done various little mods but this summer I plan on doing more. I will try to start from the beginning and go from there.

Finished up the grab handle for the passenger side today. They are now both mounted with zip ties so that they are tighter and stay in place.
