So after being Jeepless for two years and moving cross country. I finally began the hunt for the perfect TJ for me. Last TJ I owned I have to admit I beat on it for five years living in San Diego going to the desert and mountains of Cali, Moab, Nevada, Tahoe. My next one would be taken care of and will be my fishing/hunting/beach buddy here in New England. After six months of looking for "rust free" tjs and being severely disappointed I finally got lucky a found the perfect tj that had the correct list of items that I absolutely needed such as a 4.0, manual, hardtop, full doors. 1998 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4.0 5 speed manual almost completely stock and rust free with 61,000 miles. It had been neglected for many years tucked in a garage as it came from a well off family in Boston who had five vehicles in a big house. I bought it at the tail end of winter so upgrades would have to wait as my garage is full of sad hibernating motorcycles. This is how it sits now at 65,000 miles after removing some stock plastic and adding d ring bumpers, updated headlights, diff covers, fog lights, new heavy duty gas tank skid plate, other rock protection underneath and rocker guards. All fluids have been flushed and replaced with the good stuff. New spark plugs, wires, cap and rotors. She purrs like a kitten and runs nice and straight down the highway. I have a truck and few motorcycles and I walk to a commuter rail for work everyday so I'm expecting to keep the mileage low on this one. Future mods are a winch, 2" lift, sway bar quick disconnects and 32" mud terrains, but as with any jeep owner, you never know how far down the rabbit you might go with modifications. My family has some hunting cabins in Maine that I visited regularly throughout the summer/fall so this has been a blast going down old logging trails. I appreciate the info and tricks jeepers post on a forum like this. Almost everything I need to know outside of a few manuals to keep her running for another 20 years. Thought I'd finally share my TJ after using this site for a few months.
