My jeep days are over....

I wrecked my jeep today..... brakes went out, spun in to a guard rail, bounced off, and hit it again.....

most likely i'll be gettin a 94' ford ranger hooked up for wheelin.....

Thats my story....


Any one looking for an 87' YJ with a busted brake line, slightly bent bumper, ok sized dent on the left fender, no rear glass, bent in tail gate, but it has a new carb and runs like a champ..... willing to sell for dirt cheap..... please email me at Riderofrails@hotmail.com

Please help a brother out, buy my "heep"

Are you okay?

That Sucks Man.

Any time you can walk away from a wreck it was a good one.

As my first car, It was a very fun thing to drive..... I loved many things about it, but it was alot of work just to keep it on the road. Some how i need to come up with 2,000 to get the ranger... Im kinda stoked to have a have with fuel injection and abs brakes.....just a little hint to the work it already has, It can keep up with a subaru wrx on the road

Glad you walked away alright, could have been a LOT worse! Well, good luck with your ranger! Glad you found something quickly.

Glad you're ok, Dude. The damage doesn't sound unrepairable. No chance of putting the Ranger money into the Jeep to get her back on the road?

Im pretty happy, I found myself a 88 YJ, hooked up with light bars all over the place. I'm gonna have to go inquire about it. Hopefully I'll end up buying it.
