87 4.2l wrangler newbie

Hello everyone,

Checking in. Just picked up an 87 Wrangler 4.2L. Needs some work, but will be a great addition to my garage. Already having some fun with it. I am in Surprise, Az (Phx metro). Hopefully, once I get some essentials buttoned up I can go find some local trails.

Hello and welcome to the forum. Congrats on the new Jeep. Check out the Arizona section... lots of active Jeepers in there posting up for trail runs.

Thanks everyone.....

Just did a bunch of stuff to the jeep today. Check out the "What I did to my YJ today" thread for a full explanation.

Running pretty sweet now. Heading to emissions tomorrow morning and hoping it goes well. Love the bikini top and no doors look, but I know my wife is gonna want half doors and a soft top for really cold driving.

Gotta start in on the A/C to see if it will work...Gotta find step one first.

Anyway, hope to be out hitting some trails soon.

See you on the road. Jeep
