Operation Desert Squirrel

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

*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

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

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

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

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
