My YJ

I figured I'd make a topic for my 1993 Jeep Wrangler.

I bought it April of this year and the guy want $3600 for, talked him down to $3100. Drove her home, an amazing runner with only 120000 miles. The whole Jeep is pretty much stock and a great platform to build off of in the future.

First thing I did was changed the tires and wheels. Then I painted the diamond plates on the back.

This was supposed to be like a 15 minute job. Well I ended up running into the house, eating dinner as fast as I possibly could and ran back out to primer and paint before night.

Nice! I'll check it out but as you can tell I'm a little tired of duck tape at the moment . I've been making a list for two weeks now and just keep adding onto it

Oh yeah I'm way ahead of yea.

I've done a lot of maintenance to the 4 cylinder motor.

Oil change, New oil filter, Stabile, New Fuel filter, New battery, New set of spark plugs, Filled the "boxes" with oil, was going to cross the tires but figured just give it a new set of "Wildcats" for now. Them tires hum like honey bees down the road.

The guy before me that owned it took great care of his rigs so I haven't had to do much to it besides maintenance. I got a steal of a deal tho, has title, smog certificate and he gave me a bill of sale for $500 so California won't tax me more then $50.

Already went to the DMV and am about to get it smoged so the title will fully be in my name.

Lol. I've drove at least 150 miles with it. And yes I live in the middle of no where.

I DO NOT recommend Smittybilt soft tops. There is one on mine, and while the fit and quality is good, it sucks to even try to attach or remove. There are frames bolted inside the jeep along the roll bars that that the top has to button to and some slide lock things at the front corners, and... Well it just sucks. The Bestop ones look SOOO much easier to deal with.

Same here, I live so up north I don't even know what smog looks like until I drive 5 hours south lol No emmisions testing for me BUT if I had to have one done, I would pass with flying colors as it was done just prior to my purchase since its mandatory when selling a vehicle in large communities (as to which is where I bought it).

It's a hitch of some sorts. I don't really know to much but a buddy of mine said it's for either pulling boats out of the water via boat trailer or it's for towing behind an RV.

Take a razor blade and go to town on the old nasty duck tape that I believe mine was on since the 90's. After that get some really ruff sand paper and sand it down tell most of the sticky stuff is gone.

Primer the rust after sanding that as well then paint, booyeah! Your roll cage will look great and it took me about an hour at the most.
