Hey all I am new to the jeeps. I am from Ohio!
Just picked up a 90YJ over the weekend. What a blast to drive!
It is a 4 cyl but runs great!

I have alot of questions on these!

I picked it up for 1k. And everything works.

Are they bad on gas?
Any ways to get a lil more power out of the 2.5? Or is that all she has?
Any good online places to pick up parts? Need a header/windshield\misc. pieces
It doesnt have power steering. Is it dificult to swap in one?
Is 30.9.5 15 a good size tire on these with stock lift? I have 235 75 15 right now.
This has a radio in the center console. Can one be mounted in the dash?

I am gonna start searching the forums!

Thanks!

welcome, i'll bend the rule on the mandatory pic the radio being in the center is usually an upgrade, is it a tuffy center console, but yes you can put it in the dash thats where it is originally.

the 4 banger is a work horse motor, i had one. but don't bother getting anything more out of it. if you want more, swap to 4.0 or v 8. and the 4 banger isn't any better on gas than a bigger engine.

you should be able to get all power steering parts fairly easy used i'd hope. you'll need pump w/ hoses, and gear box. not sure if shaft and pitman are different. you'll need a belt to. but that is a worth while investment.

getting a running yj that isn't rotted away for that price is awesome. i paid more for a great body w/ bad motor.

lets see some pics

What tire size can I fit on here?
Doesnt look like there is a lift.
Yes it has an aftermarket center console.
It has some rust but not too bad...
