Newbe in Ct

Hey all, been lurking the forum for the last few weeks soaking up all the great info and figured it was time for an intro.
I have wanted a Jeep for as long as I can remember and Last month I got lucky and picked one up that I could kinda afford.
It's an 88 2.5 5 speed with 69,000 on it,runs great and the body is near mint with no rot but does need the frame patched at the T case skid area,the bolts pulled through the frame on one side and through the skid on the other.

For the time being it's in my garage untill I get the time and funds to repair and reg. it. Needless to say it's driving me nuts looking at it sit there!

John...

Welcome!
I hate to have mine taken apart in the garage, its like visiting one of your kids in the hospital. I've got the JK in the shop getting some body damage fixed and when I get it back I will be taking the YJ down to repair a leaking tranny seal...gonna be a nerve racking month but I will be ready for spring!

That would be tough to just look at it and not be able to take it out for a ride but hopefully you'll be hitting the trails by spring. Welcome to the forum.
