    Only the '98 with the 5.9L. It was reviewed as being the first hot rod SUV before Porshe built one. I had one. It was a fabulous Jeep.

    No, I have to fess up only a couple. It was kind of slow bc I'm not a fabricator.
    Also, I got distracted by my next project, an auto tranny gauge install, really cool! I am, half way done, took lots of pics. :)
    B0xcar you might want to consider this with your metallic beast especially if you ever wheel in the summer

    Ordered 2 rubber motor mounts.
    Also ordered door entry sill guards from Fairchilds.
    The entry guards are practical and I like them on Jeeps, just gives some added trim style and protection.
    Should have them Friday, and of course I'll be obligated to post a poser pic or 2.:)

    I've never seen 3 cowl vents, is that a mod or is that factory? Your hood louvers look so, so badass! If I had the balls to cut into my hood, I would try something like that. Nice job.

    Thanks @Travis !
    Yes 3 cowl vents, very observant!
    I understand, and I may be wrong, that 3 cowl vents only came on the 97 Tjs. Two cowl vents in 98 to ...? Not sure.
    Hey if u run into some louvres try to grab them yah it's some coinage but would make ur tj even more unique :)

    More goodies arrived this week. Motor mounts and u joints. I hope to install the motor mounts today.
    The long items in the plastic are Fairchilds (2) door sill entry guards.
    Should have them installed today as well
