I'm tired of putting money in the Jeep. I just want it finished.
With a WK, I could put like 3 grand in it and be finished
So much room for activities!
Heated seats, air conditioner that works, hot heat, 4 doors, cargo space...
I could get a Limited V8, 4wd, for 11ish grand, which means it would cost me almost nothing to get one

I'm going to see if my uncle wants to buy it for my 15yr old cousin first though.

edit: build something like this

Well yea, I'd take Omelet's WK too, but I highly doubt he's only got 3k in mods in that thing. His mod list is a mile long.

Regear for the most part.

I really want to do 30 spline chromo's/regear the 35, regear/chromo/lock the 30, some sort of HD steering, SYE/DC, install TT, install Savvy rocker, Savvy GTS, 35's

...and I'd probably call it done.

Don't bring logic into this subject.

Before he did most of his stuff (around that pic I think), it's just a basic OME HD lift and tires for the most part.

But none of that NEEDS to be done is what I'm getting at. Plus I wouldn't put money into the 35

I'm going to try to find a used S35 kit. I can't weld so finding/installing an 8.8 would be more, a D44 is expensive, and do you ever see me wheel? Most of the stuff I do is for peace of mind rather than offroad capability.

I'll be honest here, my biggest fear isn't selling it. My biggest fear is it going to some redneck that will cut it up, put it on 40's, and trash it.

A 2 owner, sub 100k mile, 1998, needs more love than that. I would be VERY picky of who I would sell it to.

Which is really why I would want to "finish" it and sell it that way. Better for me to spend a little more money and have it go to some old guy that thinks it's finished and will drive on the weekends than to some teenager that will take it mud bogging and trash it.

12 grand isn't a bad price. I could easily sell mine for what we bought it for, especially in the spring.

Eh I don't know. I'll just have to do some more thinking and see what my dad thinks. I don't need/have to sell it, but if someone gave me $11,000-$11,500...I'd probably sell it.

I mean hell I have $6,000 in it right now, which for an 18yr old is alot. Sometimes I really wish I got a WK first and saved $3,000.

I guess we'll just see what happens.
I don't think you are going to get 11k for a 98 wrangler... Maybe like 7k tops. The mods you have done and money you have spent, don't play a factor when you are selling it.

The BL/MML went in today. In the process, I finally removed the nerf bars. I don't think I ever stepped on them.

Where will I keep my mud? And how will people ever know about the 4 wheel drive?

You don't know Alabama.

6cyl, auto, Sahara, <100k miles...$11k is not impossible.

I had a thought before i went to sleep last night. I have the smittybuilt xrc bumper but i also really like stinger bumpers. If i cut the top of the front section off bumper and bent up a tube that was longer (like a stinger) that would slide into place over the cuts and weld it in.. In theory id have the first xrc bumper with a stinger..
