JEEP HISTORY
My dad was a tinkerer and off-roader; he
built mostly VW-based dune buggies and
rode them hard. I also had a black-sheep
uncle, Rick, who had an orange CJ. I
wanted Rick's Jeep so bad growing-up and
loved the few times they took me
off-roading. You see, Rick had a habit of
unplanned off-road trips; Mom knew it, and
would not let me go anywhere with him on a
week-night evening. Most weekends, Rick
was drinking and so the weekend off-road
trips with him and Dad were rather rare,
but so much fun when they did happen. I
bought my own Jeep (and first new vehicle)
in November '96 - a '97 TJ. I built it up
moderately (5" lift, 33s, etc.),
tested the limits of it's abilities, and
generally had a hell of a good time with
it. Sadly, I had to trade it in for a
more sensible family-style commuter in the
late summer of '01. After a divorce, I
picked-up a '98 ZJ in April, '05 mostly
for the hauling capability. I did not mod
it at all, and it served me well in spite
of a slow degradation of major components
(tranny and rear-end, plus cosmetic issues
resulting from living in a city). A
few years later, in a three-way
"Cash-for-Clunkers" trade, the
dealer got my ZJ, my girlfriend at the
time got a new Miata, and I got her old TJ
- another '97 - which is my off-road toy
now. This TJ has 160k miles, 32s, 2"
spacer lift, and had never been off-road
(seriously - never). of course, that's
changed. My teenage daughter just got a
beater XJ that formerly belonged to her
older stepbrother. It's a 99 classic with
270k miles. The only mods so far was an
aftermarket alarm that came with all sorts
of gremlins. The suspension is completely
shot - it's actually a bit frightening to
ride with my daughter in it. I just
ordered a RE 2" BB with shocks for
the XJ, along with ARB/OME 2" rear
springs and lots of new poly suspension
bushings to make it a safer ride. I
suppose I'll be looking for a 4.0L I-6
core soon to rebuild and replace the aging
engine in her Jeep. Until then, she can
just keep beating the beater.
