I can wrench and have a Jeep J10 that I've adored for years. The 360 needs a top down rebuild and a transfer case rebuild and 99% of you know the stork does not drop $4k down the chimney...
SO I bought a used 93 Wrangler. 4-cyl. 69K miles. 5 grand. Engine and tranny are healthy and responsive, as is the New Process transfer case. I waited with my saved money and waited for the right deal. I do not feel cheated. I bought it from a very rich person who babied this thing.
I used to think until someone experienced a FSJ, they did not know "Jeep Thing." But I am wrong!
I'm a newbie. I like this YJ and intend on being around for a while. You guys are extremely knowledgeable.
Here's my questions:
This thing is a death-trap over 50 mph, right? I commute 100 miles a day from 3500 feet to 7,000. (Rimrock to Flagstaff, AZ).
31X10.5 New BFG's. Why don't I feel confident at normal speeds? Will I?
I think have an AMC engine? Please confirm so I can feel happy. (I trust them more than Chrysler and know how to work on them).
Can I put the Wrangler in 4WD on icy roads? I hear SO MUCH talk about being insane to put a Wrangler in 4WD on pavement. Well, I need to stay alive so I guess this is the most important question.
I've driven an outdated Jeep dinosaur, self-restored, 3 tons, for the last 7 years and every second has been a pleasure. I'm looking forward to increasing my carbon footprint once again...(heh).
I'm a noob. I'd ask for kindness but I know how things go...My name is Brent...looking to get these 4 questions answered and I got a bunch more. I have a fine Wrangler but I dont know much about it.
