Default my new 98 xj

hey guys. this is my first jeep ive owned but im not new to them as i am a tech ay 4wheel parts.

i owned a baja bug and sold it to get this jeep.

i picked it up for $1400. it has 147,000 miles on the 4.0, rustys lift with upper and lower arms, rubicon rear leaf springs, posi locker in the rear....

i think the guy sold it so cheap cause it had a really really bad D.W.

it had some stock rubicon rims that were scratched to hell so i sold them and got 5 new black steel wheels.

having trouble posting pick so ill do some research and post some soon....

ive done a few other things as well.

changed out a new power steering line, changed the o-rings out on the oil filter adapter, and of course a fresh oil change.

what are you guys thoughts on a trac-lok? it has a lock right or lunch box in the rear and its popping reall bad on take off. opened the diff and there was smal flakes of metal in there. so i think its time to get rid of her...

Nice rig man. I really like the size of that roof rack. Most of the ones I see are small compared to that one. What are the dimensions of it?
