Hi all, got another new first time jeep owner here.
Been thinking about getting one on and off now for a few years and finally made it happen. Bought this one for 1500 bucks, it's a 88 4.2L carb manual trans. Had a hard time finding any jeep for a reasonable price around here but this one seems like it will fit my needs. I didn't know anything about jeeps when I went to look at this one, but I have restored and am working on a couple of old mopar muscle cars so I did at least have some idea of the types of things to look for. Frame and floors are in decent shape on it, some surface rust but no real rot that I could find. Body is in decent shape but the windshield is cracked and the windshield frame is rusted so I think I will be replacing that whole assy with a quadratech kit. Previous owner told me he repainted it himself with rustoleum in his spray gun, however he didn't do a great job of it so I will be redoing the body and paint myself. Have some other mods planned, nothing too crazy.
Anyone know what these jeeps are rated to tow? I've got a 15' 90hp speedboat that weighs around 1500lbs or so including trailer balanced so there is literally zero tongue weight. But I have been thinking of upgrading to a little bit bigger/heavier boat, maybe an extra 500lbs or so but curious as to what these YJ's are rated at.
