from F150 to Jeep.

1992 Jeep, YJ, obviously. Have had the Jeep for almost two weeks now and am really enjoying it. It is lifted ??", enough to get 33s under it. I really hate surprises, any weaknesses I should be made aware of? I know from working at the F*rd dealership, used Jeeps that came in for resale which were not properly maintained were money pits. The 4.0 has 175k miles on it. If this straight six is anything like the slant six, it'll go forever. So far have only had to replace a failed brake booster. Looking forward to good times with this Jeep.

Won't be able to fit anything bigger than 31" tires on a stock lift without serious rubbing. Biggest weakness is the rear end, which also won't handle much over a 31" tire anyways.

Jeeps are always money pits, maintained or not. Something about owning one causes your wallet to consistently be light, paycheck to paycheck


2.5L Genius of some sort.

Aside from the transmission, transaxle, differentials and steering / suspension...... Let me rephrase, the engine and related systems are pretty straight forward. I like simplicity. For the rest a good, knowledgeable, well equipped shop is in order.
