I've been reading this forum for a long time, so I figured I'd finally make a profile and be a bit more involved. My '87 yj was the first vehicle that I decided to go purchase as fresh out of boot Marine (1998). Boy did I get raked over the coals by that salesman, but I loved that jeep. I held onto it until earlier this year when child number 2 made my 10 year long engine swap impractical (as if taking 10 years to swap the engine wasn't impractical enough).
Now we're upgrading to a 2012 Bright White JKUR. I'm looking forward to actually have a running jeep and doing some fun mods instead of "duct tape and bubble gum" mods that my YJ always needed.
