Hi Guys. I'm new to YJs and this site, but not new to Jeeps I've owned 7 J10s and 4 CJs over the years. Even had a Grand Wagoneer and I just bought an 01 Grand Cherokee (Can you see a pattern here? lol) Alos been into the AMC scene for 30+ years. I also just bought my first YJ. Its a 95 Wrangler Sahara with the 6 and a 5 spd. Has its share of rust and I need to replace the windshield frame, but it runs and drives great!! Totally stock btw. Great site!!

I'm probably going to go with the Lange Original II. They mount to the windshield frame, not the door.

Nobody had been here in a long time bit I am hoping someone can help. I bought my yj this week. It had one of those old school ignition kill switches. How do I remove without killing the ignition?

Thanks in advance!

Sorry for the picture not being great.

It could be the vent. The vac lines for the 4wd go to/from the shift motor on the passenger side of the axle. The vent line, on mine anyway, snakes up around to the radiator and has a little plastic valve cap on it (one way vent).

Fuel tank size

What's the easiest way to determine the size of the fuel tank short of filling it up when it's almost empty?

YJ Air Conditioner

Hello all. I am new to this site, so please forgive my stupid question(s).
Last fall I purchased a 91 YJ from a guy who had started to restore this Jeep but gave up. Thankfully I didn't pay much but he was handing me boxes of parts, and buckets of nuts and bolts.
I've been having a BLAST all winter long! Playing in the garage. Fixed some frame rot, new limited slip diff's, new 4:11 gears, new rotors and brakes, new shocks, springs, and 2" lift. Then I started cutting out body rust and patching back.
Finally, I'm very close to seeing if this thing will run or not. Sorry for the long intro but this leads to my question. This Jeep has a compressor, and duct work, and all the bells and whistles for air conditioning but no hoses. I'm not sure about the condenser. Where is my condenser? Or where should it be? Aren't they normally right beside the radiator? It doesn't look like there is room for a condenser?

I have a 92 YJ and it is 15.3 or do the conversion and get 19.7 gallons

According to fourwheeler.com and Quadratec.com My 4.2 Liter, Automatic should have 3.55. I used the Jeep.com Buildsheet tool and it came up saying it was actually 3.07. The YJ being 1990, I thought it may have been an error because the website said it didn't go back past 1998. I went out and checked the axle tag and sure enough... That'll complicate things.

Tagging onto the question above: is it worth it if said yj is going to be a rock crawler or will I be okay with a 4cyl for awhile?

Hi. I am a TJ guy learning about YJs. This is a common questions in the TJ forums and I am certain the answer is the same for the YJ:

• frame bosses for motor mounts will have to be cut off and new ones in the correct location will have to be welded on
• different main wiring harnesses
• different radiators
• different computers (my ignorance, here: do YJs have computers? I would think so)

Swapping out your 2.5L for a 4.0L or 4.2L would take enough labor, parts and money that you might as well do a small block Chevy V8 or a Dodge Hemi conversion. For a TJ to do this pretty much the AC compressor and evaporator are the only things you can save. Everything else has to be changed to make a 4.0L work. Many of the issues stem from the emissions gear and how the engine PCM tunes stuff. The parts all must match versions for them to play well together.

If you want to go the GM engine route I highly recommend reading up on it at the Novak site.

Novak Conversions :: Swap Guides

Whatever you end up doing, best of luck to you! If I have posted anything that is bogus I am sure a real YJ person will correct my ignorance. I am just passing on the problems of doing this for a TJ. I cannot imagine it being much different for a YJ - especially the motor mount frame bosses.

previous owner installed them for lights/ aux power for other accessories?? You would have to go under the dash and trace the wiring
