Newbie... Got my first Wrangler

Hello everyone. Newbie here. Easy on me hehe.

Been reading up on here alot actually. Decided to finally join.

Got this 95 YJ recently and it runs and drives great. Was going to fix it it up a bit like new paint on hood, detail the entire body, and fix the minor dent on the front right fender. Everything else is good.

I was mainly going to use it to trailer my bike to the track.

But wifie just lost her job and this one might have to go. And possibly my bike too. Damn bad economy has hit my home.

Anyone here that might be interested? I rather sell it to folks that are into the Wranglers than selling it on craiglist and etc... Let me know.

Thanks

I'm on like fifteen jeep related message boards.

One common thing about folks who sell their jeep, is they usually end up with an empty feeling. The kind of empty, that three double whoppers can't fix!

You'll be looking for another one within a year or two!

I wouldn't say it if it weren't true, & your jeep looks pretty nice. You might have a tough time finding one that looks that good again.

Mine was in way worse shape when I got it, & I know I have to keep it till I croak!

Got a little bored... So I took care of the hood.

So far so good I think.

Before:


Rattle canned it (3 coats 1 clear)




Got lazy on the sticker so just sanded it a little and painted over it lol.

Will try to restore the wheels next or the passenger fender.
