1997 Jeep Wrangler SE 2dr SUV 4WD


Bought my 97 wrangler SE a couple weeks ago with 115k miles on it. it had a 4" lift and 33x 12.5 tires on it. over all it is a fun ride and even better when i drop the soft top. the only issue i have is a common one with jeeps. the infamous death wobble. every now and then i the jeep will go into a violent shake that is only stopped by slowing down. after plenty of research i have found that is a moderatly easy and cheap fix. about $375. kevinsoffroad has kits for this specific problem that are supposed to fix it completely. i will be installing mine tomorrow and im sure ill see an improvement. even with this problem i still can rely on it for a everyday driver.

Best Features

easy to drive, easy and cheap to fix, and its unstoppable offroad.

Worst Features

needs more lockable interior storage.

What kit would you be refering too,, plan on doing some work to a 97 jeep wrangler myself,,, something like this im interested in, just have no idea what kind of wrangler it is,,, ( not familiar with jeeps ),, all i can say is it has a 4 cyl,,, other than that i have no idea,,, but this kit sounds good if I give it a lift... everything is stock from what i know,,, doesnt even have a tow package on it, which I will change.
