Jeep Envy - 1999 Jeep TJ Wrangler

Posted in Features on April 1, 2013

Working inside sales at GenRight Off Road gives longtime off-roader Dave Watts an advantage over most of us. He has easy access to some of the best Jeep parts available plus colleagues and friends who 'wheel almost every day, giving Dave the opportunity to use his TJ often.

Dave wanted his '99 Jeep TJ Wrangler to perform as well as his co-workers' Jeeps do, so he raided the GenRight parts bin and went to work building one of the cleanest and most capable TJs we've seen in a long time. It's so clean that many are envious.

Check out the photos and see how Dave did it.
