Unhappy New to Jeeps

Hello I'm Julio (the moment I am located in New York City. I am a Wounded Warrior Project Alumni I have been in a wheelchair for a few years now and pretty much restrict to home. That is until I purchased a 1995 YJ Rio Grande with the 2.5l engine. It felt like a giant wheelchair. LOL my brother usually lifts me up to get in and stock (life springs are flat so its not that high. I was fun until in a curve the rear drivers side shock bracket came off the frame. The brake line was torn from the wheel cylinder. So brakes went out......

At the moment it at 'The 4x4 Place' a vender I found here. The is some serious frame rot, (frame had been painted black and looked solid. Behind the paint everything is rotted away). Broken exhaust and shock mounts. If a had any brains I would have asked an experienced Jeep owner to help me check it out. But the Jeep is mine and like my Harley its fun to ride. I have come to enjoy this site the information great.
