Picking up my first YJ Friday!!!!

My dream is finally coming true. I have wanted a YJ since I was 6 years old. (when they first came out) and I'm picking her up on Friday. I found a 90 with a hard top, 4.0L, 5 speed, loaded. It already has a 4" suspension and he's done something to the leaf springs? IT had 38"s on it but he put 33"s on it to sell which I'm fine with because I'm gonna be driving it everyday.

Get ready for a rash of questions when I get it because I'm a newb. Just thought I'd share.

I'M STOKED!!!!

Sounds like it was wheeled hard if it had 38's on it. Good luck with her.

Did he do a SOA? (spring over axle) that gives a lot of lift though (5"?) plus a 4" suspension lift that thing would be pretty high. If he was running big tires I wonder if he upgraded the axle or swapped them.
