    Hi, everyone! Nice to "meet" you. My first Jeep was a bright orange '78 CJ5. My second was a bright red (99?) Wrangler during college. After years of the practical car/SUV/bigger SUV and inevitable minivan progression, it was finally time to get another one to knock around in. I just found a 2000 Sahara (half doors) with 110K miles on it. I'm the 2nd owner. It was owned by a "navy guy" who - you guessed it - changed the oil every 3K miles, etc. No rot, drives solid...I had forgotten how much fun it is to drive a stick!

    WOW. That us one nice TJ. I really like the color scheme. I'm not a fan of green. But man. That Jeep pops. The green and tan interior looks awesome.

    Welcome to the site snukulu. And the best of luck with your new rig.

    I can't get over that TJ. I've have not seen one that clean. What would really make it pop. Chrome. I know it an 80s look. But that shade of green....with the tan. Sweet.. Check out OFFGRID rig. It pops with the Chrome. Sweet Jeeps.

    I bet a set of XD bronze wheels that they made in the 2000s for a couple years would look great. I think somebody else is making a bronze wheel now .

    I'm in Huntington Station (on L.I.). I'm not a big fan of green, either. My first thought was, Can I paint it? But by the day after I bought it I loved the color. Only "modification" I'll be making soon is replacing the painted tailgate hinges with matte black. Only flaw in the whole thing is that the tailgate sags a little just from wear & tear (has always had stock tires, never been lifted). It locks fine if I hold it up a little by the spare when I close it but I don't want to leave it like that.
