Dawg's TJ build thread
Just purchased my 1997 TJ Sport this past December and now it is time to start building her up. A one owner with only 80K miles. Soft top and half doors with the 4.0L in line 6 and 3 speed auto.
The previous owner is an older gentleman who is a mechanical engineer, so he took pretty good care of her. He did some modifications himself,( new shocks w/ about 3/4" lift, stainless steel brake lines, new radiator, tires, wheels, brakes and more. Downside is I really do not know all of what he had done yet. I know he did not change axles, gears or anything like that, so most of this jeep is stock and most of what he has done was just maintenance.
So anyway, I am not sure where to start. She does have some problems. A slight wobble at take off, and a sort of grind when I turn my wheels hard right both forward and reverse. I think I will start there, and have no idea what I am in for.
I will get pics of her on here soon!!!
This is sure to be a great adventure and I can not wait to get started!!!
