Finally entered the realm of the Jeep owners

New guy here. Finally got a Jeep. 1993 YJ, needs a little work, but it's a Jeep nonetheless. Right now, I just want to work out all the little bugs(brakes, exhaust leak, muffler) and drive it. Whe I feel I can trust it, I will be going to Browns to put it through a few trials and see what i want to mod. I do want to find another 4cyl. that is in better shape. I don't think the PO knew that oil needed to be changed once in a while. If anyone in the Portland area knows of a deal I can get, let me know.
Here's a pic.

Welcome to the forum. That's a nice looking Jeep, why would you want a different one? (Unless like most of us, you just want another one to keep it company.

I don't want to get another Jeep, Just the engine. I had a lifter talkin to me for a few minutes this morning. It took a few minutes to pump back up. That bottom end is so loose, It sounds like a diesel.

Thanks for the welcome everyone. I found a junkyard Caprice (1993). Was a police car, for 500 bucks. It runs, no smoke, was totaled at 68K miles. I think I might forget the 2.5L replacement and V-8 the little bugger. Guess I'll be hunting some Dana 60's after that. It's a work in progress. The problem with 4x4 projects is that they are never finished. I wanted to leave it pretty much stock. Now I'm craving power.

And so it begins, boy that didn't take very long!!!
At least you've come to the right place for advice, mine is to keep as much of the cost details from your significant other as possible.
