Hey everyone, I need some advice. I found a 90 Wrangler with a 4.2L and a 5-Speed. After talking to the owner, he said when the 4-Wheel is engaged, he hears a loud banging noise. I'm assuming the front axle is shot. He claims to have a grooms motor with 160k on the motor, 210k total. It has hard doors and a hard top. Hes asking $4k, said he'd come down to $3200. I'm hoping to can talk him down to under $3k. Thoughts?
I'm sending you this info because I have a few questions.
1) Issues with the carb? Ive heard to swap it out with either a motorcraft or a Weber. Opinions?
2) A 90 model, any issues before swapping FI?
3) The frame does has rust, supposly the shock mount is rusted out on the frame. Easy fix or no?
4) Anything you can add or questions, please let me know. I'm having a huge problem finding a I-6 in middle tn under $6k in good condition.
