this is our first jeep and my first day joining the forum. looks like a great forum!
we bought a 95 yj wrangler that came from hawaii. only rust is around the windshield frame. glass is good. we are looking for several items and i believe i have found them. it came with no rear seat, bolts or mounts or seat belts. from what i have gathered so far the parts should be interrchangable from 87 thru 95. the parts vehicle i found is a 91 wrangler loredo. my questions are:
1- will the rear seat work in ours? we have a family style roll bar and the 91 has a roll bar that drops down in the back, but doesnt cover the passengers, so it doesnt look like the seatbelts will have a over the shoulder like the front seats being as the roll bar isnt behind the passengers.
2- are 95 came with a hard top. the 91 i was told came with a hardtop and they converted it to a soft top. it has half steel doors,sliding glass for the doors(was told 300.00 a piece for this style of doors as the zip outs were junk for the windows, and all the parts to change ours to a softtop.my question is will it work on our 95 wrangler? i can pick up the top,doors with window attachments complete according to the owner for 300 bucks. i figure a good deal if it will work, but if it wont, i'll be stuck with it, but atleast would half the half doors.
3- there is also a crack in our exhaust manifold above the first junction above the exhaust flange. it isnt on a weld, but about 1 inch back. i tried j&b weld and it just cracked and flew off when the heat hit it. can i wire feed weld the pipe with it on the vehicle? i will have to remove the washer fluid bottle and the steering stem, but looks easier than removing the fuel injection and exhaust manifold. the rest of the manifold looks good from what i can see.
any help with these questions would be appreciated. thanks, and this forum once agian looks awsum. momma likes her present and just trying to tighten up a few loose ends, maybe join a offroad club!
