new purchase, checking in

so I have always loved jeeps, cj's and yj's and I finally have one. Got it this past sunday by trading my old tired commuter car for this 1991 2.5l.

yesterday after work I took it to a muddy spot and got stuck in 2 secs. I was pissed cause 4wd didnt engage. I have been reading and am thinking it has to have somthing to with vac. lines. I will mess with after work tomorrow.

Congrats on the rig. From your pics it looks like you got a good clean setup.

You are probably right on your vacuum lines not being intact to engage your CAD.

welcome to the forum, man the yj's are adding up. good.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

thanks for the warm welcome. I am deploying in a month or so and have plans on the slip yoke eliminator, 6" lift and some 35"s. I am gonna put the posi-loc on there as well and remove the vac lines. Also gonna remove the wave decal. Was the WAVE a package, if so what did it include?
