New Guy

So, I just got my first Jeep. It's just a 2.5 yj, I know the ramifications of this. I'm looking for a FSM pdf. I don't mind paying for it if necessary I just prefer digital. Also, is there anything that is essential to know about this vehicle.

LoL My primary vehicle has been a KLR for three years now so I'm pretty used to both of those. :P Super happy with the Jeep though, haven't owned it for a day yet and it already has mud! LoL

93', 109,000 on the frame, engine completely rebuilt, 2.5 manual, 31s

I got it cheap. Under chasis wiring is a rats nest so I need to sort that out. Other than that looks great, almost no rust underneath. I'm going to proof it here soon for the winter. I'm looking for a Factory Service Manual to study. I've searched on here I keep finding dead links and such.

It will be your new favorite toy! I just bought 3 for 1300. I rebuild/repair, paint and sell them, and sold my personal wrangler to finance the startup cost. So I haven't had a wrangler for almost a year. Now all I have to do is plumb the motor and body work and one of the three is gonna get "used" a bit more before it gets sold!

I'm in NC. I got it to be sort of half project Jeep and half commuter. I needed something versatile and able to get around, because I live in the boonies. That and all the time I've spent on a motorcycle I like the idea of topless a LOT. :P (vibration is a selling point!) Also, I need to take the carpet out.

Pfft, cold! I scoff at your cold! I've been out on the motorcycle in -2F in the NC Mountains! :P I've been going over it all day. This thing is excellent condition. Question though, what is the engine supposed to idle at once it's warm? It's idling at just under a thousand seems low to me but I'm unfamiliar with these engines. (I can't wait to get familiarized with it though.)

I've heard there supposed to idle around 900rpm . My jeep has a little problem with the idle sometimes drops as low as 300 ( according to the tach) and does not die. Yours seems fine

Yea, that's right about where it idles. It sounds great it's very frequent. The engine was just rebuilt. I know the previous owner, he's a good friend. I know the entire history of the vehicle. The guy before him though was a DPO. Underframe is almost completely free of rust, what is there is just surface rust I'm going to hit it with some ACF50 after getting it off. (up here you have to salt proof)

I pitched the carpet and run without the floor plugs. You can feel the heat radiating from the transmission and exhaust.

I put down some id the really thick deep well floor mats and it really cut down on the road noise but it didn't do much for the heat. I dd my rig and it was 101* and 85% humidity for most of the summer. As long as I kept moving it was tolerable. Getting gridlocked was a beotch.

Toughen up buttercup. I was down in SC this summer around 120 in a full motorcycle suit and a full helmet in 120, sitting on a hot engine. Also, fix your AC! :P

You know, I have no idea but I would think it would be a good idea. I think you need to thoroughly sand the floor to promote adhesion.

I was thinking the extra heat from removing carpet could be remedied by plugging the drainage holes.
