New Guy from Oklahoma

Hey folks!

Just bought my first YJ. Had CJs before. My wife has an XJ. It (the YJ) is a 1994 model. It's pretty stock, which is how I aim to keep it. The last CJ7 I had has a lot more roll cage, ARBs in a D44 and D60, a 360 V8, 35s, and so on. Fun, but this time I wanted normal, fuel injection, and gas mileage. I got 21mpg on the way back from Wagoner! My big CJ7 got 8mpg, if I kept my foot out of it.

I will probably make a few metal things for it, limited slip the rear, maybe the front. Been reading up on a manual disconnect for the front. Weird not getting out to lock hubs. The last truck I had was actually a Chevy K5 with a bunch of lift, blah blah blah. Missed Jeeps, sold it, got this one! Ok, I might CJ the front clip. Probably not. Just haven't gotten used to being square.

I will dig up some old pics, take some new ones, and so on. Holy, crap! I have a working heater, AND air conditioning!!!!!

David

Thanks guys!

I have been trying to get my brain in to that sponge mode to soak up as much inf as I can about these new-fangled things.

No locker in the shrinky dink diffs; check
No idle adjustment with the fuel injection; roger that
No manual locking hubs; got it

I really want to leave this little thing alone, but I really want to do a few things to it. Dangit. I will leave it be for now. Might start at least looking for a bigger rear diff. Most any rear diff at the new LKQ salvage (kinda like Pull a Part) is just over $100 to $150. Gotta do some self schooling and find me something. No hurry though.

Thanks for the welcome, fellas!
