Sweet!
Take a good look at the rear axle, they came in 3 different flavors, D35, D44 and the Crysler 8.25

A '99 will most likely have the 8.25, which has strength comparable to a D44, by the way. You're going to love the TJ/XJ combo. As previously stated, all the cool kids have one

Other than what's above, HP30, d35, abs, tow package, power everything. I sure there is more. The girl I got it from wanted 5k, talked her down to 3800. 180k miles, new radiator, no rust. Needs new ujoints in the front shaft, and need to repaint the hatch since its faded from being in phoenix. Other wise made the 150 mile drive up the mountain to flagstaff. O its on I think 31s. Street tires though
