Dons_Jeep Welcome to the Forum Darren, My advice to you is to look for rust both under it and along all the seams in the body. I don't know how Jeeps sell out there in Colorado, but here in Boston they sell fast. If you find one you like buy it because it might not be around long enough for you to think about. Good Luck in your quest....See you on the trails!

blkrubi88 Welcome to the forum!

YJoey Dont settle for anything less than a 4.0 with a hardtop. You can always get a bestop softy later.

Look at the engine, the airbox and how clean it is. Check the oil, get dirty and crawl underneath it. Look for leaky seals and leaks. Look for rust on the frame especially around the very rear frame rails. Look under the carpet if it still has it. Take a buddy that has a jeep if you have one.

JeepFrogger Gotcha. Well good luck n post some pics when ya find yours

DarrenDizz yeah I love the bars in the older YJ's. I think my preference is F.I. cuz of prior experiences with carbs in high altitude, i live at like 8,000 ft. and drive and wheel even higher than that.
06-23-2010 05:09 PM
JeepFrogger I'm torned between both, I myself drive a Carb YJ but a close friend has a Fuel Inj. and did not have to go thru the initial carb. them both, I could'nt choose...I do like my bars best though lol
06-23-2010 04:57 PM
DarrenDizz jeep froggy- I'm leaning towards a Fuel Inj. YJ. im not too familiar with carbs. thanks for the welcome to WF!!

Do you prefer one to the other carb vs. F.I. ?
06-23-2010 04:52 PM
DarrenDizz ha ha ha yeah, old cars cant live with 'em cant live without 'em.

Some of the best cars i'd say have already come and gone... or well aren't manufactured anymore.
06-23-2010 04:45 PM
JeepFrogger Are u considering both a carb.YJ or a fuel Inj.YJ?...I dig them both but the earlier YJ seems to have come with a weak carb. I knew this b4 I got it so, replaced it was. U know u might or might not have to replace it...but then again on either one u will have to dish out sum cash for repairs n mods...but well worth it! Well, welcome to WF n I'll leave the congratz on the Jeep for later.

toshpate that too but leaks in motor, trans, axles, brakes, radiator, mine leaks from all of the above ha ha ha wait not the radiator yet...but its 21 years will have issues..
06-23-2010 04:26 PM
DarrenDizz thoroughly check for rust high and low.

Cool, so leaks as in the hard/soft tops?
06-23-2010 04:09 PM
