Got my Jeep running about a week ago...

I have had it for about 2 months and only drove it home the day I bought it. It is an 89 with a bored and built 4.2 (the previous owner doesn't everything that was done he just paid someone and told them to make it nice). It had sat for about 2 years before I saved it. Since my purchase I have replaced most of the brake parts and the exhaust system. It already had a Borla Cat back on it and I added a Borla header and a Magnaflow cat to complete the system. I got it running and drove it to work a few times and now the battery is dead . It has no problem moving when you give it a little gas. Here are the exhaust pieces:

Sounds like it is time for an alternator. Glad you got her moving though.

I went and tried to start it today and it fired right up even in this nasty cold.
