new to jeeps

hi. my name is casey and i just recently was givven a 95 2.5L 5 speed wrangler. not sure on what all has been done to it but so far it has a set of 31x10.5s on saggy springs, a broken drivers side door handle, some body damage, cel because of an O2 censer, many exhaust leaks, electrical issues, wont start unless i crawl under it with a screwdriver, very little power, chip in the windshield. its hit a few deer and been rolled onto its side. but it was free and even came with a broken cd player. it also looks remarkably beautiful on a cell phone camemra lol. i just recently had a daughter so mods are going to consist of whatever i can find free or cheap used.

im not new to working on cars or trucks. nor am i new to beating the wee out of a vehicle off road. just never in a jeep before. i have owned a few full size broncos but the first drive home in the jeep changed my mind. and it was worth every penny i spent on it... er
because of my new daughter and work i wont be online much so im sorry in advance at how long it will take me to respond. but im in the upstate ny area and will try to help out as best i can.

welcome...just remember its always a work in progress. I have one in college and one about a year away. There's always something eating up the spare cash...at least you can focus on a wish list for now. Eventually we will get to the point we can do some of the mods and it will be so much more appreciated due to the long time waiting
