I just bought a 1995 yj with 158,000 miles 33'' mickey thompsons with 15'' dc-1cepeck rims, new soft top.its a daily driver but I want to put some $ and time into it, where do I start with engine performance? I know nothing about trucks but want to learn, should I join a local jeep club? i'm in memphis.

welcome aboard. a good place to start is to click on yj forum at the top of this page. then scroll down to the bottom. state forums are listed there. this does not mean you are in the wrong place for yj info. this is the ultimate place...as you will see.

Congrats on the new jeep.

What motor do you have in there now? 4Cyl or 6? There honestly aren't a lot of performance mods that jeeps engines like. They are just torquey little monsters and that's what they are made for. Axle gearing is really where your money gets put to good use.

i say dont worry about dumping money into it and just spend some time 4wheelin it.
my best advise is a complete going over of engine belts, gaskets, tuneup, fluids,hoses, replace worn body mounts, check electrical, replace bulbs. At 14 years old your money will be better spent freshening it up a bit.
