Long time jeeper back at it again!!!

Boy, when they say jeeping is in your blood, they really mean it.

I bought my first jeep (87 YJ) more than twenty years ago. Lifted it, threw on some 33s and drove it pretty much all over everywhere. Twelve years later, in some sort of post tequila hallucination, I sold it and bought an XJ . . . quite the grocery getter at the time. Four years after I bought that, I lifted it too . . . 3.5 and threw on some 31s and pretty much drove that thing everyewhere, too.

Shoot forward another ten years. In a post marriage new partner phase, I got rid of the XJ in favour of what I can best term the grampamobile and hated it from the day it hit the driveway. But with obligations and boat to support, I really didn't think I'd ever catch the bug again.



This is the research portion of the project . . . which will be an 87 to 89 YJ with a yet-to-be-determined lift and other assorted doo-dads. I'm going to find out what's new, what's old, what works and what doesn't, then get at it.

Oh yeah, if anyone knows of a YJ out there for sale fitting the above noted description, feel free to pm or email me.

Until then, I shall be lurking, reading, posting and dreaming of that first ride in my brand new old Jeep.

Cheers for now,
