Owner by Proxie

Hi all, I bought a 1993 Jeep Wrangler YJ for my 15-year old son, who will be driving in the fall. The engine is strong (indestructible, I've heard it called), but the body/interior needs some work. It's an 18-year-old car, what do you expect?

So now to the juicy part, it's a 6-cylinder, 4.0 L ride, with a hard top, 33-inch tires, and (Iím told) a 5-inch lift.

My son and I are gonna spend the summer (and a lot of cash) fixing this beast up, but our emphasize is on a daily driver. Of course off-roading will be fun too.

Anyway, hope for advice, tricks, and shared experiences...

Peace...from California

Welcome to WF! I would be wary of rust, check out the undercarriage carefully

Tell your son he is one lucky kid I got my 02 wrangler in the spring when I was 15. I hope he likes it.

I would like to see some pictures put up of the jeep.

You will learn a lot about different thing and tricks when on the site for building your jeep.

One last thing welcome to the site.
