Total Rookie buys Jeep!

Hey gents! I'm a total Jeep rookie I'll try not to be to big of a pain as I learn about my new toy!

I am from sunny Florida a retired mechanic I've been a vw owner since 72 but decided I wanted to go in a different direction.

I purchased a 1987 Wrangler yesterday with 133,000 miles a 2.5 and a 5 speed, and relatively rust free, running, with brand new tires but with several little problems that I will probably be asking for advice over the next few weeks.

I'll throw a couple of pictures up and let you take a look

Thanks Tom62
