What to look for
New to the jeep scene and new to this site so I thought I would introduce myself over in this forum as well.
Live in Lubbock Tx and just bought an 88 Wrangler.
What I do for a living, I own a wrecking yard for the past 10 years and been in the business since 1989. Mariied and have 3 daughters.
Here is the details on the jeep.
6cyl, 5spd, hard top and doors as well as a bikini top.
PO installed a 2" suspension lift and 31x10.5x15 tires.
Jeep has 200k miles on it but runs fine.
Only problem, and the reason I bought it, is because the trans jumps out of reverse. Plan on pulling it this winter and having my transmission shop fix it.
Looks like the power steering pump/hoses/gear box is leaking but I will find out for sure once I get it on my lift.
The lights for the tach and speedo do not work but the guage lights do work.
Other than that it runs great and I am having a blast.
My question to ya'll is what other problems or issues should I look for or will come up in the future? Or just bassically any and all kinds of advice from ya'll would be greatly appreciated.
