You should paint your YJ white and it can be Dixie :-)

Dropped it off at the shop to get a bunch of work done over the next 4 weeks while I'm out at sea. Can't wait to see her when I get back.

Rethink where you park. Might be better if those 7th grade horny dogs were chasing you and not her. Jeeps are such a turn on

So I just came up with $1,000 and want to ask for some opinions on what to get for my kiddo here, I'm planning on getting a 4" suspension lift (cause I believe I have a 2" body lift, previous owner put that I guess)... here are some current side view photos

My neck hurts. Take the body lift out and lift it 4". TC drop, black steel wheels and 33x12.50 BFG's would be my plan. Keep it simple if it is for a kid.

I'm going on 2 months. Started with a blown transmission. Turned into new bumpers, fuel cell, frame repair, new windshield, hood, tube fenders, bigger tires etc.

WOW is all I can say, I'm glad that I don't have that many problems! (knock on wood) So how much longer before you get your back on the road?

Just put the transmission up in it finally. Gotta hook the tcase up. Fill fluids. Drive shafts. And toss gas in her and she should fire up.

Tore the carpet out, wire brush and washed it out. Let it dry then sprayed it with rustoleum till I can finish it this week. Will be taking out the seats, center consule, and misc little things, then taking a angle grinder with wire wheels to it and getting it down to bare metal, then spraying with etching primer, then roll on bed coating. Pics to come

Wrapped the old hose tightly with the tape, disconnect the hose from the fuel line, slid the 4" piece of garden hose over the original hose, reconnected, and clamped down. I had my doubts if it would work. But it did.
Haha that's awesome. No reason to shell out money if you don't have too!

Not today, but yesterday. Driving down a two lane back road. Car in front of me slams on breaks. I locked mine up too, but wasn't going to stop on time.. Veered right and, as my buddy who was with me said, did a "Dukes of Hazzard" jump into a field. The road is elevated about 5 feet. We were airborn. Landed clean, sat there for a second, then began to yell because it was awesome. Could have turned out ugly.
