Sounds like the red one to me. If it's in decent shape underneath. Some rust can be fixed. But at what point does rust repair outweigh a hard top? That's up to you.

Oh yeah. I forgot. The red one sounds like the best option then. In my opinion.

92 Jeep Wrangler Renegade

It would be a shame to buy this and de-Renegade it for my needs...

Anyone wanna buy a Renegade kit?

I HAVE A NEW (to me) JEEP!

For all my new adventures, and to see most of the mods I have on my wrecked '90 swapped onto my new '93, GO HERE:

2xs, a new Jeep, a new Build Thread!

Reduced to 31's, 2" Black Diamond lift, and no top (for now).

Still need to hook up the brakes, and rear shocks, remove my SYE and Driveshaft to put in the '93, but the '90 will be driveable soon enough.

Anyone wanna buy a slightly salvaged '90 2.5L AX5 YJ?

Fired up my '90 today, reminded myself it still has a full tank of gas, but somehow, sitting in the driveway for 2 months, it developed a cracked exhaust manifold....

I did manage to get the Tcase put back into stock form, so when I have some time, Ill be putting that back in and prepping it for becoming derivable again..

Till then, its on Non-Op at the DMV....

Getting my '90 closer and closer to sell ready, I installed the boomerang shackles that were wrong for my '93 onto the front of my '90.

Found out the shocke are too short now.

Damm, so looks like my '93 is getting new shocks pretty swoon, and the old shocks are going BACK onto the '90!

So, anyone know what shocks I should put on the '93? something to mellow out the ride as those leafs are stiff! and its got a 4" lift....

Got the rear Boomerang shackles installed, painted red, liek the front.

Seems the front sits an inch+ LOWER then the Rear, I might have to buy some lift springs off CL to even it out....

I also got the rest of the Roll cage painted RED (front bars to windshield (since I stole the original ones for the '93 for the Cross bar and CB mount).
Installed the cage again, and put in my old Bikini top (not the Spiderwebshade)...

Next I get to tighten everything, remove the track bars from the axles.

THEN hook up the parking brake... and install some sort of reverse lights so I can pass Brake and Lamp inspection, then smog and Post it up on CL!

eventually...

Since im getting my '90 ready to sell I hooked up a reverse light.
Since it was totaled, ill have to get a brake and light certificate, and since I had no reverse light, I had to add one.

Got the exhaust tailpipe in today, and re-flanged the pipe at the manifold. (Working near an exhaust shop that gives me deals helps).

Still non-opped, hoping to have this registered and up for sale soon...

With the 3:07 gears, its like driving a 3 speed....

Ill post a current pic tomorrow.

I pulled my 44 and 8.8 for the time being so I can put in 4.56 gears and an ox locker in the 8.8. I put in my stock 3.07 axles and it sucks with 33's compared to how the 4.10's were. I can only imagine a 4 banger with 3.07 gears......

I registered this Jeep and found out the insurance company failed to brand the title as Salvaged!
Now it's worth (on paper) double!

As far as driving it, my AX5 2.5L drivers like a 3 speed with the 3:07s
Literally 4 th is useless!

Selling this as is for $3K should be easy.

Any takers?
