Operation Desert Squirrel
2 Attachment(s)
Well as a lot of people know, I sold my 03 Rubicon a couple months ago to fund a trail rig and a DD.

Today I bought a 97 TJ. Specs are on my profile. I pick it up on friday and this should be a fun build!

Current: As of 9/11/13

*2.5 RC Coils 1.25 BL
*Rancho shocks
*315/70/17 BFG A/Ts JK Moabs w/ Synergy Suspension 1.5" Adapters
*IRO over the knuckle steering
*Spartan Front Locker
*Mastercraft Rubicon Seats
*Stubby Smittybilt Bumpers
*XRC8 winch
*Homemade sliders
*Flat Fenders with 3" Flare

Here we go... i bet this will turn out great... How many miles? Defiantly want to regear that thing if you plan on putting some good size tires on it.

175k, but it was cheap and a trail rig. No rust and has never really done any harder offroading other than dirt roads

So you have a Trail rig and a DD instead an 03 rubi?

I have a trail rig and a DD, yet i still end up DDing the trail rig lol!

its nice not having to worry driving the rig you trashing on the trails to get you to work on monday!

whats your plan of attack? first mods? so many things to do to a stock rig!

Looks good man. Glad to see you got out from under that runner (pos really) and got back into the Jeep game.

not sure on the first mods yet. Still deciding whether or not I want to paint it Camo tan with black accents or not. The hood has chipped paint with fading around the front, but i can deal with that for now. I want to do MCEs with 2.5" suspension and 1.25" body. Hopefully find a front locker. Make stock bumper into a stubby, replace the worn 97 seats with the black rubicon seats coming with the jeep

Did you guys agree on a price yet?

Moose340 08-02-2011 02:03 PM

I like the name!

DezertTJ 08-02-2011 02:03 PM

I will let you know later today cause we'll know then. I'll still take it for his asking price if he doesn't go down. I cant find a TJ cheaper around here that runs

DezertTJ 08-02-2011 02:38 PM

settled on 3800. still a good deal for a TJ

Great news for me. Instead of friday to get the Jeep, I pick it up tomorrow. Can finally start working on it and showing progress on here instead of just talk :D

I have LD rears also.

I am, but I blew a radiator hose 150 miles from home. So I'm currently having it towed back to the house to work on it tonight

The time now is 10:05 AM.
