Hello everyone, I got my first real jeep (had a WJ before) in the fall of 2012. It is a 97 TJ named the Great White Buffalo. The build will be slow because I'm in college, so money is a little tight.
This is how it looked when I bought it off the used car lot. The only differences from stock were a winch, mismatched mud tires, and a lined interior.
The first thing I did with the jeep before upgrading anything was take it on a trail ride at Hawk Pride Offroad in North Alabama with some guys from my local Jeepaholics Anonymous group.
The first mod I made was to start the GWB's growth spurt. This is a 2.5" spring and shock lift with a rear tracbar bracket.
Next up was a little rocker armor because I suffered a little love there at Hawk Pride. These aren't sliders, I plan on fabricating my own sliders.
I had to miss spring break this year so I got a little bored back at home and plastidipped my wheels just for a new look until I saved up enough money for bigger tires and wheels with better backspacing.
Found like new front and rear bumpers for good prices so I pulled the trigger on those. Around the same time I bought a Rancho steering stabilizer and installed it.
