Just bought my first Jeep

Hello all,

Just bought me an 87 Wrangler, with 4" suspension lift, 32" BFG Mud Terrains, and a lot of problems. The guy that had it before me blew the 6cyl and put a 4cyl out of a cherokee in it. Motor mounts don't seem to line up right, half the vacumm lines are just bolted off, and some other little issues. Solid tube, straight frame, and lots of time to get this thing to a better place (preferably buried in mud somewhere). Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Dan

New Jeeps

I just bought an 87 wrangler also. It has alot of rust but not to bad of shape. The carberator is giving me grief at idle and yesterday the rear break line broke from to much rust. Now I get to dig into it and replace the brake lines. Welcome to the fun...

Yeah I am at work at the moment, but I will post a pic or two tomorrow. I am about to run all the new brake lines myself, so I feel that pain (which should be pretty minor).

Here is the first pic I took the day I got it. Done a few "clean up" things since but nothing major.
