Had a XJ before and wife made me sell it. She couldn't argue over getting this Jeep since it was free. Worth every penny I spent also. It belonged to a friend and failed state inspection due to rust. He felt he owed me for one reason or another & offered it to me. Couldn't pass it up. The tires were so dry rotted that they wouldn't hold air, so I scored some wheels and tires from craig's list. Have had to replace most of the brake lines since they rusted & blew out while trying to load & off load on my trailer. The alt was siezed & burned thru the belt when I got it started. Scored a used alt from a you pick it yard for $10 and invested in a new belt. Now the P/S is leaking so bad it just drains when sitting. I guess new hoses are next.

Wife hates off roading, that's her problem. That is all.
