My 90 YJ

Ok I am new to the forum, I have been reading threads about other YJ's and decided I would share mine with you. I have a 90 YJ that I picked up around September, It has a 2.5 liter engine that I hope to swap out later, 4" Rough Country suspension lift, 33-12.5-15 Cooper tires,Hard top and full doors that I want to swap out for a soft top later also. Since it has larger tires I am building a rear bumper and tire mount to get the spare off the tailgate. as this project progresses I will post pics and let you know, as of right now I just drive the he&& out of it. Total cost so far for the Wrangler $365.00 this includes the used tires I put on it last weekend due to a flat left front tire on xmas eve. Since I got the Jeep I have changed the alternator,( replaced the old one with one from a chevy diesel engine) Pulled out the carpet, and removed wiring in it that was laying on the floor board. any suggestions about upgrades are greatly appreciated, and any comments or questions are welcome. I still tell my wife this was a great deal. Are 49 cj3a cost over twice as much and still isnt done. Happy Trails

Welcome! Nice Yj. Too bad you're on the other coast, I'd love to sell you my soft top and soft doors to clear up some space in the garage.

Not looking to make big money on the top and doors, just looking to replace with something more practicul like a soft top and half doors or even soft top with soft doors.Thank you for the kind words. And on the bumper i have decided to make a new front and rear bumper to match.
