New YJ owner from Indiana

Short version:
- Wanted a Jeep for a long time.
- Finally got one!
- 1995 YJ. 4.0, 5 speed.

Long version:
I have been reading this forum for a long time, doing research and being envious of wrangler owners. The wife and I finally decided to take the plunge after spotting a very clean great deal. I got a 1995 It has the 4.0 and 5 speed. I haven't looked at the axle tag yet but I am guessing it has the 3.07. It has 31x10.50 BFGs and I was at 2k RPM at 65-70mph.

I had to drive to Cincinnati to get the jeep but it was worth it. I paid $3800 for the Jeep and I made him fill it up before I left (it was on E). Now on to questions then pics.

Questions:
- Is there no little green arrows that flash when you have the turn signal on?
- The front axle is not "live" correct? When you shift to 4hi, it engages the transfer case and the vacuum actuator thing "locks" the hubs. My last 4x4 was a 2003 Ranger and it had a "live" front axle. In that the hubs where always "locked" and the front drive shaft was always spinning. Just disconnected at the T-Case.

Looks great! Welcome! I'm a Hoosier too. From fort Wayne.

Yes there should be signal indicators on that "black" screen in front of the steering wheel. If the signals work ok I would guess burnt out bulbs.

On mine child seat in the rear I had to use that metal seat belt keeper that came with the seat. It looks like a bent "H".

The front axle should only engage when in 4x4 if the vacum connection is working properly. Mine did not work so it was replaced by a posi lock by the po.

The jeep looks great btw.

I opened up the dash to change the lights and I put a known working bulb in the right turn signal and it still didn't work. The whole top row doesn't work. The bottom row appears to be working. Is there a fuse for each row?

Do the turn signals work out side the rig? Some times my arrows dont work but I can hear the ticking and see the turn signal outside when its dark or Im out of the rig... My arrows in the dash work about as well as my gas gauge...lol

That thing looks like its in real good shape. Welcome aboard!!

Yes everything appears to be working correctly expect the top row of lights. Turn signals and brights all work. I'm not too concerned with it. Just have to pay attention and make sure after making not so sharp turns it clicks off.
