Talking YJ brought back to life, poser pics

i've spent the last week or so getting this bad boy ready for the badlands. it sat for about 5 yrs, in my driveway, getting moved every so often. i decided its been sitting too long. it is actually in great shape, i changed all the fluids, fixed a charging problem (fusible link) replaced all 5 valve stems, and thats about it, runs and drives great. its ready for the badlands.

it was stock when we got a hold of it.




here's a few of the jeeps posing

thanks, i am amazed, i've dealt with many vehicles that sat, and its not good. this one was under a cover, and believe it or not, gravel driveways are better than concrete, they breathe, where concrete holds moisture. i put it off cuz i thought it was gonna be a disaster. brake rotors didn't even get shot, brakes are good, i flushed the fluid. lines are solid, clutch is good. pretty darn lucky

when i got my hands on it, it was stock. its a 90 4 banger
soa w/ 2" springs, kc lights, black on black (interior was grey and exterior had ghey paint splatter stickers) tuffy console, best top aqua seats, american racing outlaw 2's, and the all terrains are 32's. it needs at least 33's, but we never got that far. those tires have about 6k on them. there's plenty of little things i'm forgetting.

If you look, there is a hook made with three holes that fit's the YJ's front bumper bolts.

Nice jeep Dave! Sitting pretty nice on 32's, did you regear?

ya, those hooks are like 50 bux or more last time i looked, these are 10.

those are bfg 32x11.50r15. not sure where they were purchased though yjmopower, i think it was a local tire store. those tires are 6yrs old at least. they are way too small, that jeep can fit 35's and still flex out.
