Family Adventure Vehicle: 2000 Jeep Wrangler

I picked this up the other day and absolutely love it!

2000 Jeep Wrangler Sahara
4.0L
5-speed manual
AC
CD
30" BFG AT's

Momma and baby are happy with it too.

Starting her out early.

I was considering the Jeep Patriot but I just love the Wranglers so when I came cross this deal I had to jump on it.

Future plans include roof rack, budget boost, disconnects, aussie locker and swing-away tire carrier.

Just keep the YJ please. It is good for a family to have 2 Jeeps.

Congrats John!!! Glad to see that Audrey and Autumn can enjoy the trails in a lot more comfort now. A Toyota would have been a bit more comfortable but... :lol:

Welcome to club TJ. Very nice. Your going to dig the difference between your leaf spring YJ and the 4 link TJ. Much better ride, and if you set them up right, much better flex.

Just curious, did you give up on the search for an LJ?

Thanks. My wife already appreciates the better ride we get from it on the road. I'm looking forward to the next Saturday when I can evaluate it's off-road performance.

Kind of. I realized that I didn't absolutely need one and they're a bit more $$$. I'm sure I would have been happy with the extra interior space but I'm fine with the TJ.
