Hello all. Ray here. I hail from Shelby, NC and have been a Jeepaholic since about age 5. I currently own 2 Wranglers: a '91 YJ and a '97 TJ. Both are 2.5L 5 speed. The '97 has a 2" BB w/31X10.50-15 GY and rock crawler bumpers. The '91 has a winch, Smittybilt double-tube front bumper, 30X9.50-15 BFG's on Cragar 15X8 steel rims. Lots of plans for both.

Thanks for the welcome. Some other things about me and my Jeep(the '91). First, I'm 52, married to Julie('97 TJ) and have 16 grandchildren. Have owned many Jeeps over the years. And my Jeep has 259XXX miles on it and never been rebuilt. Runs strong. I put at least 36 miles on it daily.

And never been rebuilt. Had the head off last summer. Not even a ridge at the top of the cylinder wall. Doesn't burn oil. Leaks a little around the front seal. though.

Welcome - I agree, my YJ (technically my Dad's YJ now) still runs like a champ.
