99 Chili Pepper Red

I've been lurking around for a while now, decided to have my own thread here. I own a 99 Chili Pepper Red Pearl Coat Jeep TJ Sport.

Here are some of the pictures of the way it was when i brought it home:







It currently sits on 30" wheels. It has the D30/35 Combo unfortunately.

Here are some of the pics from my first offroading experience:












Currently, i have taken off the bug deflector, added a 12k lb Gorrila Winch, new front bumper with D Rings, added a Sailcloth Soft Top, and added Hella Off Road Lights at the corner of the windshield.

I have plans for a RC 4" Lift, 33" Mud Tires, Herculing, and Rocker Guards.

Thats a nice color and good start to a fine lookin jeep.
Its funny whenever a jeep is going through water you usually see someone grabbing onto the roll bar.

Yep, i'll ask my parents. Its about 45 miutes outside of Powell. It is in Anderson County, right off of I75. There was a place selling $.55 hamburgers. There are some Dinasours sculptures or something at the exit. It is a Coal Creak Mining facility. the other side of the mountain is an the Windrock off road park.

I'll try and get more specific directions for ya.

O yeah I've gotten many deer and turkey there. We used to stay in an old plantation house that is supposedly "Haunted" (very creepy in there) our friend managed that house and the land for years but now works in nashville so we don't hunt there much anymore. I can't remember the houses name but I'll ask my dad.

Nice looking Jeep, I like that color.

You will find that there are many other high school/college Jeepers on here (including me, senior and I am 17)
And we are all on an extremely tight budget, just like you probably are.

You mite want to edit you sig......30'wheels=30 ft wheels.
