Here it is...My 1997 Wrangler Sport with a 4.0 and automatic tranny. For now it is stock, but my tax returns may change some of that after I put away some money for my kid thats on the way.
This thing came with absolutely no options. I say screw the A/C. But i installed the 6x9 speaker bar, and the factory foglights... wiring is a b*&%$
So I took the advice of some guys on WranglerForum and decided to paint my old faded gray fender flares instead of spending a lot of money on new ones. I used Krylon Fusion black satin paint. To prep the fenders I washed them with soap and water, then wiped them down with mineral spirits. Spray them with as many coats as you wish and let dry. Thats it. The hard part can be gettin the flares off. If you want advice let me know.
Here is what a Wrangler looks like with no flares in case you were ever curious.
Here is the finished product

UPDATE 1/25/08 The wife now has her own Jeep. She totalled her Cobalt and we decided to get her a Patriot since we will need four doors anyways with the baby comin. So here are some bad pics for now (I will get good ones for you guys later). Also notice the location of the pics. They are sitting in the 4 1/2 car garage that came with the house we just bought. Look at all that room to work.
New pictures of the Patriot.
Here is the Wife's Patriot in the snow.

nice wrangler buddie! 5 stars toy get you started!

Hey thanks for the props on my Caddy. Its kinda weird seeing my bedroom window in one of your pics lol. Your a lucky SOB for having a garage like that. I tried to get one of my friends to buy it before you did so I could use it. You better put it to good use because that garage is too nice to just store things in. If you see me out give me a shout. I need more neighbors to talk to. :D
Nice ride... I'm trading my WRX for a 2003 X in a few days. Saw your link on WranglerForum and thought I would say hello. I'm in Shepherdsville too. Small world.
NICE LOOKING JEEP. CHECKOUT MY ZR2 AND OTHER RIDES.
