My 1999 build thread

I bought this jeep with only 86,000 miles and completely stock for $6500. I had to buy a new exhaust and i had to fix one of my ball joints. Since this is my daily driver i didnt want to change it too much, but i planned to put a 3in rc lift and custom bumpers and bigger tires.
