My Jeep Adventure

New jeep YJ Owner... ( 2 weeks )

I paid $1,500 for my jeep Yes you read it right...
The guy Told me it ran fine but ( Rides Like a Jeep )

What he meant was the whole front end needs to be replaced but if i
be honest no one will buy it lol.

So i got the jeep... Replaced Tie Rod Ends and bar with the rugged ridge kit
that fixed wandering steering issue.

I had to replace the carb.
and where the manifold meets pipe ( where donut gasket usually is )
had to be re-torqued and that fixed the leak.

I had the cat chopped off and the muffler chopped and replaced with auto zone turbo max muffler and Tip

I am shocked as to why its not loud at all it's fairly quiet at idle with a ruffle.
and sounds a tad louder when giving gas..

Jeep has 33" swampers and i believe a 4 inch lift.

Hard top is coming off and being replaced with the bestop duster deck combo
if any one wants Hard top i will sell it for $200.00

After about $900.00 into it it runs perfect
but does have 3 bolts snapped at valve cover and 1 on manifold
so it leaks oil...

Attempting to fix that issue tomorrow.

Here's a pic.
