Hello from Pa every1

New girl from PA here. I have a 89 YJ that we aquired as a project and boy is it ever...lol Has 119k it's white with a now black top. When we got her from my brother it idled ROUGH backfired and just ran pretty awful. No heat no interior light and the gauges didn't work. Oh and whoever owned it in the past decided to paint it with house paint! Also she was in an accident which miffed up the fender pretty good and bent leaf springs. After 3 days of scraping and pulling the fender back to fix it we had the body somewhat straightened out. Fixed the heat gauges and the lights. Now we just have to fix the high idle and get a lift and she'll be set. Anyway here is how she sits today...I wish I had a before pic but I never took one...lol

Welcome to WF.
Thank you for the welcomes Yes they are 2 inch lift shacles that won't be on there long. Once we install a lift they're coming off of there. Right now she's not driven because of the idling so she'll be ok til we get the work done that she needs.
