Nooby from the UK

Hi all, just like to say Hi.
I've just bought myself a '93 2.5 Wrangler (left hand drive) with fat tyres and tricked up suspension.
It has parked up in the UK weather for almost 3 years so I know I'm going to have some work to do. The engine runs and the clutch isn't stuck so bonus's there.
There is no top at all on the Jeep so I will need to get a top ASAP.
Any UK members recommend where I should start looking for a deal?
I'm leaning towards a soft top at the moment. (I have the frame)
I'll need door tops too. (I may need the frames).
Any advise gladly received.
BTW thanks for allowing me to clutter up the forum.

South Wales UK.

Dang, another Brit?!?! Welcome to the insane asylum.

I might be able to help you out a bit with the top issue. What type of doors do you have?

Chris in Wiltshire or Glos....who knows.

Howdy and if you don't want to buy a brand new top check eBay for some deals.

Hi all,
Thanks for the big welcome.

I picked a new Bestop on eBay including the door tops. in the UK too.

It was fun fitting it (I did have all the hardware after all.) Even in our so called summer it was a little cool so it didn't want to stretch.

It's now on and looks great.

Still struggling to find much in the way of parts this side of the pond though.

I need new bushing for the front sway bar links. I may go with poly bushes.

Cheers for now
