Lucky Blue TJ Build!!!! Brought to life to wheel hard!
Hey there Iím Mike, I am a senior in high school and I love Jeeps!
I was saving my money for a while working at a hobby shop and Sears to buy a jeep. I ended up purchasing a 1998 jeep TJ SE
It has the standard D30/D35
It came with a superlift 4", 32-11.50R15, champion winch, some off brand CB, RE track bar, new top end on the motor, cat back, Tuffy overhead consol, front stinger, custom rear bumper, 4 fog lights, lunch box locker, and some sort of off brand Hi-lift.
The bottom end of the motor and car its self has 112,000 miles on it
I bought this in Las Vegas for 2,500 which I believe to be a great buy because it runs great!
I will add pictures as I go. If you live in SoCal im always down to go hit some trails!
By the time i got home the top was so sun beaten the wind had cracked it so i had to toss it. Then i woke up and got the muffler welded back on and smogged for 40 bucks! It passed!!!!! I did get death wobble when i hit 35 though but i had some old tires in decent condition in my back yard so i took my Jeep to sears to get the new/old tires put on balanced and an alignment
Now its all registered and can be taken up to 80 with no issues!
Next I cleaned up the interior and re-wired ALL the extra stuff. I also made a sick center console box out of a mortar box which has a hinge in the back so you can lock it from one side and know one can get in. Also with the mortar box I can still slide the top off completely so i can use my cb I installed in there when I’m on the trail.
I also added a cheep, good sounding, sound system. I took off a bunch of stickers that were everywhere and got a better condition drivers seat!
Second thought thoes pictures are when i gutted the Jeep it wasnt cleaned yet!
still just under 3,000 for the Jeep including all the work ive done to it! It looks sexy now, runs flawless and purrs nicely! The one thing it needed was a new fpr which i replaced this weekend along with the spark plugs wires and all that.
Im trying to get my dad into this jeep thing too! you can see him helping me with my fpr and i thank he had a good time haha
Ok today I'm going to order window skins! Does anyone have them on sale rite now? I need the spice color also I'm starting to shop around for a good deal on a rear d44 with 3.73 or 4.88's that would bolt in
I need some help from you guys to figure out my next step. Now that my windows are almost here, Ac/heat would e nice. I checked them and they work... The problem is there stuck on the defrost setting. When I move the switch to floor or In your face setting you hear clicks but stays in defrost mode. where to I start checking for problems is it all vacuumes?
