You might find that making sure it's semi-reliable before throwing a bunch of extra parts on gives a bit of peace of mind.

I got my YJ a few months ago and I was excited about putting a lift on... turned out I spent the money on new seats, new locking center console, new brakes, a bunch of seals that were leaking, u-joints, normal tune-up parts, and I'm still not done yet. I have to drop the oil pan and transmission pan because they are both leaking.
This held true! Haha! I went to get emissions done today and my catalytic converter needs to be replaced!

I want to say thank you for this advice...I just bought my 95 YJ 2.5L the (PO) put 2 in shackle front and back, new jasper engine , radiator, clutch, rear main seal, some other things...but it seems to have a lifter noise I was told lifters need replaced and rear main seal leaks...so far I changed oil and sending unit. Still want to change other fluids I was told he just recently did a full tune up....but I want the tapping and leak to stop. Any advice
