94 YJ Project

I recently bought a 94 YJ at random, and sold my other daily driver.
I want to record its transition and share it with you someone who
has the same interest about jeeps.

I have to admit, i knew nothing about jeeps before i bought this one,
the main reason i bought it was because i live in Boone, NC. the
snow this year is ridiculous, and the Honda Accord isn't cutting it
anymore.

94 Jeep Wrangler YJ
Straight 6 / 4.0

minor scratches and soft top damage
Few clutch problems
4WD will not engage consistently

gonna work some kinks out and keep you guys up to date on all the mods.

As I change things, certain parts will be up for sale, so keep your
eyes peeled, if you see anything you want - let me know.

Below I have attached a picture of what it looks like right now.

Hello from Asheville. Nice looking ride you got. You're right, the snow has been crazy around here this winter. If you ever get rid of those door mirrors, let me know. I'm needing a passenger side for my 92.

Those wheels and tires look sweet. I'm thinking about a set of those when mine wear out. Let me know how they perform, or if anybody else has them I wouldn't mind the info.
