New YJ... Haven't even bought it yet!

Hey all. My name is Matt, from Kansas. I'm on the wait-list for a '95 YJ that's my girlfirend's dad's that he will be selling soon. He acquired this thing from my gf years ago, and wants to sort of "keep it in the family", so I agreed to buy it, once he finds a new truck for himself.

My dad has a '98 TJ and I've always wanted one for myself, so when this deal popped up - I was sure to speak up with my interest. It's a '95 with some body and floor pan rust, and just the 2.5 - but the price is right, so here we go... lol

I'm still trying to decide if I want to completely replace the rusty body panels (mainly just behind all 4 wheel wells) or just cover them with some sort of body armor and call it good... I'm sure not trying to make this a show rig - just a moderate trail machine that I can daily drive during the summer, if I want.

I've done a little research on this site, but have a lot more to do. There is a ton of information here! So - future mods are fixing the exterior, new floor pans, then rhinoling/POR-15 the entire interior & frame, 4" RC lift and 33's, 4.10 gear swap with lockers, and eventually swap over to the 4.0L, or if I get a wild hair, a 350 Chevy, although I hear it's a ton of work... Of course, this is just the short list - I know how the mod bug works...

So here's a pic of all it currently, in all its glory lol hopefully I'll have it in my hands by the time Spring REALLY hits!
