So this is my 97 TJ, 2.5L, 5spd. I got it 2 summers ago now.. and i regret not having posted as ive done things to it cause i believe it came a long way from the first time it got driven onto my driveway.

Anyways i was 19 at the time and in my first year of university. And this was my first vehicle

I did all the regular maintance stuff right away, changed my oil,filter, replaced all the differential fluids, new fan belt, new spark plugs, distributor cap,

The day it was rolled onto my drive, it was feminish looking had these rainbow fog lights, purple sport sticker on the side, and that ugly looking bra upfront. Like i said feminish.

I had taken off the ugly looking fog lights already at that time, and i was just contemplating about the bra but that didnt last long either :2thumbsup:

Then after spending the day, doing the petroleum varnishing of the flares, and some touching up of rust spots, and replacing my fant belt. i had to take it out for a drive with the top off for the first time.

I am a university student so i wasnt able to do a lot of mods at one time but i had a lot of things on my mind that i wanted.

And at that point i wanted to make my first offroad trip so i went with a friend of mine who also has a Jeep.

And these were the outcomes :cheers2:

Man it looks a lot better without those girly sport decals. Sucks that the license plate still has girly colors.

Then i went out and got some of that stuff to clean the plastic window scratches with and got some 303 Protectant aswell to restore my top a bit cause its faded pretty bad.

Also i had taken off all the stickers off it cause they were kind of cheesy

Then i installed some stock fog lights that i bought here on this forum. and gave the jeep a good cleaning at the same time.

Next what i did was
Get new tires
Installed tow hooks
Had to get my exhaust manifold replaced

I will post pics of all the new stuff up tomorrow

I also traded my half door for full doors, i prefer to have the glass instead of plastic windows much more convinient

And this is some recent pictures but not that new since then i put on some tow hooks, i also got 15" Ecco Wheels instead of the steelies.

And i will post pictures of what it looks like as of now

Great pictures. Wish i had a soft top for mine. It's a pain in the butt to take off my hard top every time i want to drive around with out the top on.

Keep up the good work.

Well today i installed this rear tow hook.. sorry for the quality all i got is my blackberry since my rents took our digital camera with them to europe.. One of these days i gotta get some full shots of the jeep with the new eccos wheels and everything on it.

Heey there buddy, first time i see this thread here.. guess i just don't browse the site as much as you do :laugh:
i do have to say man that tow hook install is impressive, i was wondering how you got that on there. I guess next you're gonna have to post pics of the rockers, i even found the perfect smiley for your dad's expression when he saw them come to your door :rtft: lol
Well man keep it up and here's to more good times with the Jeeps :cheers:

Here are some pics of the rocker guards i recently installed about a week ago.

And this is at what the Jeep is currently standing at with the 15" Eccos, rocker guards, and hooks etc...
I plan on doing the flares over again, since last year they have already chipped in places so next project and LAST for this summer is to re-do the flares again.

The time now is 02:18 AM.
