First Jeep - 97 xj

I bought it 100% stock (not that it's changed much so far)

Right after I got it:
-changed/checked all the fluids
-replaced spark plugs
-replaced a bad Ujoint
-balanced tires

For some extra protection, I painted all the trim and bumpers with rubberized paint then put a coat of semi flat paint over that for looks. heres what it looks like so far

Next I painted the rusty wheels black. Was worried it would look like crap, but turned out pretty good.

There's my posing passenger after my first time mudding with the new jeep

Thanks!

Well it has to be my DD so i cant go crazy, but i want to put a 3in lift and 31s on it next. Then a cargo basket, trailer hitch, bull bar or whole new bumper, rockers, new wheels, all new audio inside, and couple lights on the front. First jeep so I'm sure I'll come up with more as time goes on
