Work in progess




Got this from my cousin for $1500.00. '98 4x4 XLT. 4.0, AT, and all the other XLT bells and whistles. Everything works. Driver's side front fender was introduced to a guard rail right before I bought it (nothing major and I have new fender just need to get it on) but other than that it has less than normal 13 yr. old scratches and dings. Really great shape.

I've done a few things to it: New Goodyear Wrangler RT/S 23575R15's, new Flowmaster dual exhaust, K&N drop in filter with po' boy air induction modification (which works), aluminum tool box, vent shades, rear end oil changed, and did the Seafoam thing. It has almost 146,000 miles on it and runs like a beast. Bought it basically for an extra knockaround vehicle but like driving it better than anything. I'll do a few more things to it, then just drive it.

Glad to be part of the site now.

Looks like a good project! Get rid of that pinstripe and windshield decal and it'll look even better!

Great deal. That would make a great beater truck. Or winter vehicle for when it gets too bad for the car.

Personally would have went bigger on the tires, especially with those aftermarket wheels.

That's actually the next things to go. When I replace the drivers side fender, won't be able to go back with that stripe because it's discontinued.
