    Hey everyone, I purchased my 2002 KJ back in Nov. with 132,400 miles on it. Thankfully the last owner took care of it and there's only surface rust on the rockers.

    I'm hoping to lift it eventually and replace the P.O. highway tires with good A/T's. Before any of that happens, I'll likely get my 96 K1500 back up and running (The motor blew and the trans is iffy but it has new tires and rides way better than my KJ). Either way, both this KJ and my K1500 will be around for a long time.

    Also, I can't for the life of me figure out how to add a picture of my KJ to my profile.

    Welcome. Ya some good AT tires really help and once OME lifted you can run a bit wider tires too.
    As far as your avatar, you really have to get it small in size, and then try to upload it.
    While online, moving mouse over your SPR name, (small top right header) and look for avatar in the drop down menu.
    You will need to crop and re-size the pic to get it right probably. It seems to mention 200X200 pixels and may give further advice on sizing.

    Wow an 02 in MI with little rust! That's a good get! Welcome!

    I miss my 02. I liked it much more than my 05.

    Thank you for the warm welcome! The previous owner had all of the fluids changed regularly including the trans and diffs. Also, the few parts that the P.O had replaced were all replaced with OEM parts (I think that's why the ride is so poor).

    Since I'm in college, I'll have to wait until I graduate at the end of the year and then see if I can get the KJ to ride better (preferably with an OME/Bilstein lift).
