Talking Just got an old jeep

Hi all,
Just got a 92 YJ a few months ago. It is an old rust bucket that has not been updated. It has a bad paint job and lots of work to be done. The bed and frame are rusted through and falling apart. The speedo does not work and I don't think it has brakes. The carpet is brown and it stinks. One of the doors doesn't open and the hard top leaks. I rattles at 50 mph. I can't wait!

Welcome, It can't be that nice! We need pics to prove what you say is true.

oh man you do have a lot of work to do. well when your ready for this step i would chuck the carpet and use a roll on bed liner. it takes a lot of abuse and it doesn't stink (except when you're rollin it on). plus when it gets dirty inside you can literally hose the inside out.

Welcome to WF. You will get lots of advice for cheaper than it will cost you to own A Jeep!

BTW is that plug hanging down under the front from a engine block heater. ? Mine has one also and down south I really haven't needed it

It could be for the aftermarket Christmas light package.
