    Welcome to TW!

    Great year choice! Ive been really happy with my 96. I put the 3" Eibachs coils and 5100's shocks and it gave me a nice 3" lift.

    Any questions feel free to ask.

    yea so far i know it needs:

    1) new power antenna or at least something to go in its spot its broken half way...
    2) paint job
    3)tire carrier under the bottom is stripped out and will not lift up spare ,have to carry it around in bed
    4) tint is comming off insides of the windows(someones poor tint job)
    5) dash panel is broken(center) someone tried instsalling an aftermarket radio and broke the plastic)
    6) sliding back glass latch is missing (theres just two holes there)
    7) one headlight is very dim (about to go out)
    8)clutch slave cylinder is just starting to leak a little...

    BUT the truck just had new radiator installed, timing belt, water pump, and fan belts.. and 4 new wranglers....truck has 166k on odometer.
