Re: Just bought a 1998 ZJ 5.9!

Yup i dont care what some of these guys say. $3000 for what i got was more than worth it. They are hard to find let alone for $3000 Maybe some of these guys found better deals who knows. Im just glad i found one. And by accident! I wasnt even looking for it!

Re: Just bought a 1998 ZJ 5.9!

I don't have much done, you can tell by my signature lol. But I am seriously debating a single in/dual out muffler to run side exits before the rear tires. My exhaust is shot so it is time to come up with something new. I plan on doing headers in the near future also. I mod slowly to keep things interesting LOL (good excuse right??)

Re: Just bought a 1998 ZJ 5.9!

I passed Manhattan Jeep the other day and as I was passing by, I saw a black Niner on the used car lot. I slammed on the brakes in the middle of 11th Ave and went into the lot.

Far afar it looked smoking but when I inspected it I saw body rust, dents and dings. Had 104k miles on it and the dealer wanted 8k for it. I 'd and walked out.

Re: Just bought a 1998 ZJ 5.9!

Many people mod the 5.9 it's not hard to get a lot more power out of it. Look up some youtube videos. Plenty of 5.9 videos.
