First Wrangler

Hi everyone! Not really "new" here but I finally bought a Wrangler so I figured I'd post in this section.

After 5 months of searching for the "perfect" Wrangler, I finally found one that felt a connection with (don't deny it, you know what I mean).

1987 with the 258. 164k miles total with 10k on a full motor rebuild (have receipts). As a matter of fact I have a Manila envelope that is about 3 inches thick with all the receipts.

AX15 transmission
Motorcraft carb
GM HEI distributor
Computer deleted
Electric fan with manual switch
2.5 inch spring lift
1 inch shackle lift
3 inch body lift

The PO bought a TJ Wrangler and swapped out the rims from that one to this one. So it has 16" rims and (285/75?) 33" ish Dick Cepak Crushers. These will have to go as I can't handle the noise.

Looking forward to meeting other Apopka/Orlando Jeep owners and doing some trails in the future.

Oh and after my first off-road excursion I named the Jeep "Squeaky" as the front end sounds like it was full of mice every time there was a bump. Looks like I need to grease up some parts! LOL.
