Hey everyone! I just bought a project YJ last night and since it is in fact a project, I came here hoping to leech lots of advice and information and share back my experiences (minus the blood and cussing).
This is my second Wrangler. My first was a 93, but I had to sell it after only owning it a few months. I couldn't afford the note plus insurance being single, 20, in Nor Cal on a military pay...lol.
Long story short, I've been wanting a Jeep ever since and found a deal too good to pass up last night. 1987 with 4.2L I6. Paid $700 cash and drove (limped) it home 2 miles. It's obviously a project, but I hope it's a fun and rewarding one!
License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.
I totally plan to! Speaking of which, what is the proper etiquette here for such a thing. Is it faux pas to start a thread for my build? I don't know how fast it will go and it will most likely come in spurts as I have time and money, but I certainly would like to document the build.
