New YJ owner in KCMO

Hi everyone,
I just recently picked up a 95 YJ and am loving every minute of it. This weekend I am in the process of lining the tub (Herculiner). I have pictures but the camera and my laptop are not cooperating at the moment. I look forward to learning from the knowledge base here.


*edit*
apparently my iPhone is smarter than my laptop. Here is my YJ

Thanks everyone, next step will be the lift. Although I am new to the whole "lift scene" but any suggestions would be appreciated. Not sure what size tires can fit what on these with what ever size lift. I am thinking about the rough country 4" and believe I should be able to get atleast 31" tires on. It has 235/75/15 on it now with no lift.

31s you should clear with 2.5 inch lift with 4 you should get 33s I wanna say if I remember right. I'm looking into the OME kit with 31s and 15x8 wheels idk about 15x10.

I'm sportin 33's but the ole 2.5l has a tough time turning them over sometimes. It doesn't bother me because it's rarely on the highway, or will rarely be when I get the title straightened out....lol. Anyway, might wanna stick with 31's for highway use if you have the 2.5

Yea I have the 2.5 and was wondering how much trouble it would have with the bigger tires. I don't get out on the highway too often, but I do live in a metropolitan area so I can take side streets just about everywhere. Even if I do get on the highway, its only for a few miles at the most. I have been looking at a bunch of the pictures of jeeps on here with the different size lifts and the 4" really sticks to me. And the 33's give it that more aggressive stance and look. Thanks for the input and for the compliment. I really do like how the herculiner turned out. Got two good coats on today and will let it dry all night before I put the interior back in tomorrow around noonish.

Any chance you can post a few pics of how your seat belts are installed? I can't seem to get mine to work right and the instructions are Greek.
