tthomp93's 98 TJ "Casper"

This is my first Jeep. I had a 2000 Chevy Blazer for about two years, but i had a wreck on the way to work one day and it was totaled. So i decided to get a jeep, and my jeep build begins.

The day I brought her home.

She looks great for a 98! Enjoy it man, But once you catch the Jeep bug you'll have empty pockets like everybody else on the forum!

Also, my plans are to do some smaller things to my jeep such as entry guards, K.C.'s, grill inserts, etc. And then this summer when my landscaping business is back up and running in full swing to buy a new top, and skids. But nothing ever goes according to plan so we will have to see how everything goes this summer.

My Christmas present this year from my parents was a RoughCountry 3.25" full suspension lift. I also emptied my bank accont on some 15" soft black 8 cragar wheels and some 33" bfgoodrich km2's.

Ok sorry i haven't been on in a while, i've been broke for a while (everyone that drives a jeep knows how that is) so i've been trying to come up with some money so i could continue my build. I saved up some small things so that when i finally did post it would be something worth looking at, so here ya go!

I got some euro style tail light cages.




Added some grab handles in the front.


I lined the inside of my jeep, yes i know its dirty but its been a while since i did it haha




This is the biggest thing i've done lately. I bought and installed a Smittybilt classic rear bumper and tire carrier, my friend Rockdrummer93 helped me put it on. Thanks Zach!
