Just bought my first wrangler... I have worked on a bunch being an auto shop manager, just never owned one myself....I have to say this off roading stuff is addicting..I allready spent over 3 grand in parts within the first week .. I see myself going broke real soon ...... Love the forum guys
Nah, just new and still in black primer... It's a 91 and has what i guess is the normal rot.. front fenders are shot, rockers aren't the best, tailgate has rot, windshield frame not that bad and drivers floor board is done... I have all ready done both fenders, welded in new floor boards tonight as well as repaired the rockers, new tailgate is on, windshield frame awaits mounting..
I just bought a new set of xenon TJ style flares, a to z rocker gaurds and a ton of other crap for her.......ahhh the money is going fast
Here's how it was when i bought it... it's torn down now and will be better than ever when i'm done... still deciding whether to throw in a chevy SB
Thanks guys for the welcome...... well lesson learned tonight,,,,,, never judge a vehicle on looks... what a piece of chit this thing turned out to be...the body rot i can deal with but after i had the passenger side done i moved to the drivers,,,, guess what, the from the cowl to the rear wheel well is a 1/4 inch thick layer of body filler WTF.I mean the guy took the time to even carve out the word jeep out of filler....... I'm ready to throw in the towel... Ya it came with with lift kit, M/T wheels and tires, Warn winch, rear locker, and a bunch of other new stuff but i cant wait to see what turns up wrong next..... should hav been a dead give away when i noticed the track bars were literally cut off................. Sorry, had to vent..
No ones fault but my own.. I looked at so many and i guess i just got tired of searching and bought this one without really looking at it good... Living in NY, i have to stick to a YJ to beat the inspections laws if i decide to throw a smal block in there... Trying to find a clean, rust free YJ up this way is damn near impossible..I'll work with what i have and just beat the hell out of it and enjoy while it's in one piece..
