Very happy to say I have finally purchased my first Jeep. Something I have wanted for a long time as I am sure you guys can relate. After much research, waiting for the right one to become available and deflecting asinine craigslist scams I finally found one that was just right for me....nothing fancy now, but good for me.
Here are her centerfold stats:
1997 Jeep Wrangler TJ Sport
4.0 inline 6 cylinder
brand new stock size Goodyear Wrangler tires
new soft top
pics (I will get some better ones when it is daytime)
She is some sort of crazy green color... really caught my eye. It would be great to know the factory name. So far friends and family have described it as "Shiney Olive", "Metallic Pea" and my favorite "Dragon Green" but if you experts know the real name we can stop making up stuff.
I got it to replace my previous car that was a very good commuter car, but I needed to get out from under the payments. I am a freelance animator that works mostly from home so I don't put many miles on a car per year commuting. I bought the Jeep for 5,000 cash and I think it was a reasonable deal. She is in really good shape, not much sign of any off roading. No mysterious mods...a clean slate to do, you know, "stuff" to
Now, I was hoping to find a TJ with Dana 44's and I think I got just that. But because I am no expert I am hoping you can confirm from these pics if that is so.

What do you think?
At any rate I am very stoked and look forward to years of Jeep ownership.
