Our Time Has Come To An End

The day I never thought would be here has come. We sold Shirley. We bought another 1997 TJ for the next chapter in our wheeling lives. As silly as it sounds, this decision was not as easy as it seems. It ended up being a somewhat emotional which made the decision much harder than it should have been. “It’s a Jeep thing, you wouldn’t understand” comes to mind. Financially it made sense for the next step in our off road experience.

We bought a very well built TJ from an MJR original who maintained his vehicle well. It has seen Johnson Valley, Rubicon, and much, much more already in it’s life and will share a lot of trail time for us as well.

We will be going from a Fire Red 97 TJ with 108,000 miles that has a full replacement cage, some armor (oil pan, gas tank, rocker guards, steering skid), OBA, and a lift, but stock is most other ways to a Black 97 TJ which has much, much more. Most notably air conditioning, an AtlasII 5:1 transfer case, custom axles with ARB lockers, ready for coil-overs front and rear, rear outboard shock mounts, viair OBA, and a bunch of little things. A few of the small perks we get is wiring for the hard top wiper, a sound bar, tilt steering, 19 gallon tank, intermittent wipers.

Thank you Shirley for the great times on the trail!
