My 95 YJ - still nameless.

The intro: Well I bought this YJ with 200k+ miles and the promise that it was pulled behind an RV. Its from the Gulf Coast so it has rust on the body in a few spots (only surface) but zero rusts on the frame or underneath (its got an undercoating). When I got it, it had a "loose clutch" according to the previous owner, new rotor cap, new sparkplugs and wires, new marine stereo, and two odd but nice bumpers. After a new master and slave setup for the clutch, she shifts like a dream. Then the starter failed. Found out it was the original starter and that the motor locked up (not the solenoid). Fixed that and then she was a dream.

The first upgrade: I noticed the battery was close to the end of warranty so I exchanged it. I decided to get a bigger one to support accessories all for $free.99.


What it looked like when I got it:

Its been a while but I lifted her. 4" rc lift and I picked up a set of 31" mud kings and American racing rims (the same that I already had 4 of so now I have 8) for about $100. I also got my CB installed and put a 4' fire stick antenna on.
