I've had a 93 Sahara for the past six years and have put a lot of work into it but was just getting to be to much here of late so I started looking at replacing it. One week later here I am with a 2004 rubicon has 59k on it and appears to have never seen dirt. Zero rust on anything anywhere on it. Couple pics now

I know very little about the tj suspension so it's gonna take some research on my end. Has a 2in spacer lift now. Looking at the 2.5 inch ome kit though. Also has 33's

Do a search for the locker bypass. It allows you to to engage the locker in 4whi. 2wd as well depending on how you set it up.

Nice jeep! I have the 2003 version with the same wheels. I went with the OME lift as well and love it. Great ride and handling. You won't regret it.

Enjoy!

Looks good. I had those wheels on my last Jeep. I loved them, but I traded that Jeep for my current one.

Congrats! I bought my '03 about a month ago and have loved every day of it. The locker bypass mod is probably useless, but it is too easy and too cool to not do it.

One important thing you should know is that you do not need a SYE, because our t-cases have no yokes to eliminate. It already has a flange.

There! Minutes of unnecessary research eliminated.

Haha I already knew this though but thanks. All I'm gonna do is get a cv shaft for it eventually after I do the suspension on it. I've put over 200 miles on it is one day, I can't stop driving it
