im getting it tuesday because they are putting the starter in it for me, but here are some pics. i will have loads more tuesday when i get it and they will be bigget and better and more detailed
they are putting the new starter in it for me so thats why im going to be getting it tuesday and it needs a back hard top window,and a sterio of some sort,has no radio or nothing
well its a 4 cyl right now,idk the leters. but i want to in the future put a v6 in there something with decent power. but idk if i will how much power does the 4bangers have anyways?
The 4 banger has enough power for now. My friend has a 1997 Wrangler with a 4 banger and he gets around okay with it. I own a 1992 Wrangler with the 4.0 straight six and I must say, it has more power and torque than the 2.5 liter, but the 4 seems to be okay for my friend (although he wants to upgrade to a 4.0). My friend has over 180,000 on his 4 cylinder and its still running strong. All he needs to do is replace a lifter. He has 31's on his Jeep as well and is getting a lift kit sometime soon. Just last week, he pulled a Ford F-450 truck off of a rock with his Jeep so that shows the Jeep's got some power
thanks im buying it off my cousing for 1200 and yea it looks good i will have to drive it. as for the 4banger pulling the f-450 thats does show. and yea my dad has a jeep comanche with a 4.0 straight 6 i like it but it is nothing to my old 4.3v6 200 chevyh s10 i rolled. it was a v8 cut off motor. so much powerand these upgrades wont be till down the road, the paint job and lift kit and stufff.
Yeah I heard those 4.3 v6's were good motors. I'd see if I can throw one of those in your Jeep when the time comes. But I'm in the same position as you. The lift kit, the new seats, the stereo, and all the good stuff is coming later on down the road. Tonight I repaired my floor pans. Next is replacing my rotten kicker panels. Then buying new carpeting and dyeing my dash board and seats black. Then putting the interior back together. The list goes on and on lol
yea haha its a jeep thing lol. and yea but the thing is im a full time student (senior) and i work 5-7 days a week and around 25-40 hours a week. i have very limited time. and if you could put that 4.3 v6 i want it in mine!!! that would be sick!!! but the 4 banger will HAVE to do for now lol. its my first vehicle that i really bought seriously so i will cherish it lots its my new baby
but hey yj man, you like my jeep?
Oh lol. I'm only a junior in high school and I'm looking for a job. But congrats man I'm sure you'll love it And yeah I definitely like it! Reminds me of my Jeep when I brought it home Except mines white and yours looks to be in better condition than mine was lol.
You most deffinetly can put a 4.3 V6 in your jeep. But why do that when you can have the extra 2 cylinders and have a 350, I'm actually getting parts together to swap a 350 in mine. Check out novak-adapt.com they have tons of information on there and excellent parts. Thats where im getting all my parts from.
YJman, its hard to find a job nowa days, it toolk me all summer to get a job! did you buy your jeep yourself? and thats cool i have always wanted a wrangler and my dad said dont even think about one when i started looking for another vehicle but its all good now and yea it looks in great condition, thats why when i say it i gave the kid 300 buxs right after school when i got my paycheck haha.
Minigfather, thanks and yea i am luckey, they had another jeep they traded to a friend of mines dad thats stayed outside and rotted and the guy got 2 sleds which he made around 6k for, and the other dad is selling the jeep to my friend for a 1000 so i deff got the better jeep and the other one was standard
Rogertc1, it will be as im not a whole lot good with vehicles altho i used to have a toyota at my sisters that i needed to put a timing chain in and i broke a few things here and there and i ended up junking it bc i was working ppretty much every day so i had no time. and i will hit up santa but my parents are kinda tight on money, so i wont get alot, but i willget something!
PAOffroadMike, thanks, your jeep will be a good project for you! i dont want you to give up on it!!
yjkid95, thats cool you can, yea a 350 v8 would be nice, but how much would the motor cost? and how much would all the parts cost? compaired to a 4.3 v6? as im a full time student right now and i dont know a whole lot about this i will probly have to have a machanic do it bc i dont have the tools to.but down the road i deffinately want to!! no matter the motor i use!
thats alot of typing lol. and im off to work soon, i will check this when i get back!
I know I've been hearing it all over lol. And I payed for part of my Jeep. My dad payed for most of it though and I'm going to pay for insurance. I was going to wait another 6-8 months and buy a Mustang GT but I decided I'd rather buy a car now and get a Jeep I could work on. I also liked the idea of driving around in the snow storms lol. So when I'm out of college I'll buy my Mustang and probably still have my trusty YJ But yeah man, you're real lucky it's been garage kept. I just POR'ed like half the underside of my YJ. It stinks getting POR all over you lol.
Use Locktite, Or Kiss Your Nuts Goodbye!
Small like a CJ, better than a TJ!
☼ YJ â○⌐ EVER ☼
whats por? and your jeep looks pretty nice tho! i will have some bigger better pictures soon of my jeep when i get it! and whats por? and im going to take care of it! my dad dont want me spending money on my jeep if its not going to be reliable or last well he has no clue lol
my plans are EVENTUALLY paintingthe whole bottom of the jeep to make it look nice and then probly regear it and DEFF put a sterio system in it, lift it down the road bigger tires maybe new motor fog lights of some sort getting it camoed or have it painted yellow or paint it myself, theres probly some i missed but yea hows that sound?
Hard...well that depends on your skill or will to do it I guess bud. I've done lots of motor swaps in all kinds of vehicles. As for welding....the motor mounts will have to be welded in or you can buy a bolt in engine cradle. I would go for the weld in mounts myself. You'll need all the wiring and computers from the 4.3L. If you still have your "wrecked" S-10..it would be a perfect donor. You have most everything there you need. except mounts and a few odds and in's. Even better if it was a 4x4...you can use the NV3500 transmission and NP231HD t-case from the chevy, in the jeep also.
My 4.3L (or what once started as a 4.3) is in my S-10....
nice trruck, and no that s10 eas sold to a friend who beet the living crap out of it, he blew it up bc he was pissed at his gf lol. and yea i dont weld so i would het the bolt on, were do you live if you dont mind me asking? maybe i will have to come visit you some time when i got some money saved up so you could do it for me as long as you arent a million miles away lol. and i would be buying a motor and whatever i need but this is in the future, not anytime soon. you can pm my were u live if you dont want to post it.
pssht i just turned 18 leame alone lol and how do i become a supporting member? i deff am as i have like 82 (counting this post) posts, and i try to help as much as i can and whats the easiest swap? u never answered me lol.
