I felt that I needed some info on my new purchase so was browsing the internet and stumbled into this corner of the internet. I got to reading and decided that I'd become a member of your community.
For starters, my family has always driven Chevy, I on the other hand (since the first day I saw Daisy Duke get into hers) have always wanted a Wrangler. A month ago I decided that it was time to buy myself a birthday present. After much searching for an affordable jeep I found a 1990 YJ in sorry condition... cheap.... So without my wives permission, at the age of 36 I find myself with tons of work to do on something I've wanted ever since I can remember.
I'm a mechanic, have been for the better part of 20 years. I spent time in the US Air Force as a Jet Mechanic and have worked on everything from mobile refrigeration equipment to bulldozers. If it has an engine and runs on a fossil fuel I can work on it so this "project" shouldn't be too difficult. My father has a sponsorship from a carb company called Quick Fuel and I'll be chatting with them about a few things to start and I'll be yankin the engine to do a complete rebuild.
My YJ has been sitting for the better part of 7 years and hasn't moved. I have a hard top, a soft top, and assorted springs to lift it. The only thing I dont "like" is that there is no air in this puppy... I may have to work up a custom AC system for myself out of some spare parts at work. Helps working for one of the largest refrigeration companies in the world
Feel free to shoot me any tips or things I should keep an eye out for as I'm new to the jeep world.
This looks familiar but welcome to the forum again.
Thanks for the welcome, yeah its the same post just moved/ reposted over here at someone's suggestion I've been browsing the forum all day so am a bit more familiar with etiquette than I was when I first posted... not to mention I've had about 6 hours of sleep since then
