hey everyone

new here, just picked up a 93 wrangler the other day 4 cyl 5 speed with only 75k miles sat in my grandma's backyard for the last 4 years where my aunt left it because it needed some work, and my aunt's never abused this thing, only time 4x4 was used was in the snow when needed, NO RUST on this thing.....just a lil dusty, don't mind the parts under it, they aren't for the jeep, it drove itself onto the trailer after sitting for 4 years, just needed some gas and a lil starter fluid(only to find out it just needed gas, tank was empty)



stumbled on this site when looking for parts and such, def not new to the offroad world(i've got an 89 bronco i toy around in the mud with) but this jeep is a whole new animal to me, definately looking forward to any good advice i can find on here while i start to lift this thing and make it my own.

and yes the 2 tires on the passenger side are flat, one the valve stem rusted out, the other has a leak.....but the rims are the only rust on it, and they are getting removed for bigger and better things

The best advice that I can give you at this point is decide what you want to use if for and come up with a game plan before you touch it or buy anything. Otherwise you're wasting time and money.

for now, daily driver till i find the pickup truck i really want, my 2005 f150 is nice, but i want a 250 or 350.....something diesel and has better mileage, so for now the jeep will be getting me better mileage, i average about 16 in the 150, and my aunt said she averaged 20 or better depending on traffic.....eventually i'm going to do a axle flip and wagoneer springs(they have a little more arch and will give me some lift, and are also flex happy....or so i've been told) and put some 35's under it....but i don't think i'm going the mud route with it, i've got a bronco for that, might do some crawling here

but for now it'll be my "reliable" winter vehicle/gas saver in the summer, my 2wd f150 isn't the greatest in snow deeper than 1ft....and if this handles anything like my bronco once i put the 31's under my bronco under it, i should be very happy with the result(and yes i have lug adapters/spacers already)
