I gave up over the 383 because I was just beginning to think this Jeep was bad Voodoo. I spent a month rebuilding it after I bought it drove it for a week before the whole intake and fuel system went. Spent a month doing all of that. Drove it for no joke another week and totaled it. Spent 2 months doing those repairs. Then another month trying to get my clear title from DMV which after a month was denied and thats when I found out about the extra 383 dollars.
So all in all after owning it for 6 months I only got to enjoy it for 2 weeks. I bought it with the intentions of being a project, but with everything going on at home and work I had no time to do my work. Also having no garage space I have no space for tools or materials. We are moving within the next couple of months and a larger garage is my priority.
I will be buying another YJ, but I will be looking for a 4.0 this time as a base to start with.
Believe me my friends and family won't stop dogging me for giving up after all of that over only 383 dollars, but the luck just wasn't right for me on this one.
