jgano23 welcome to the forum. it is a jeep it is always worth putting money into. "Just Empty Every Pocket" you wil find that no matter how new or old the Jeep is you will be putting money into it, whether it's for a new shift knob or a new body tub it's worth it b/c that is what makes it yours.

Hi all,

Back in my BC days (that's Before Children), my now ex-husband and I had a red w/ black hardtop CJ. I loved that Jeep, and it worked great with one child in a car seat, but when the twins came along, we had to have something that could haul all the stuff that you don't dare leave home without when you have three children under the age of four. Reluctantly we traded it in for a mini-van. Now that the kids are grown and on their own, I didnt need that big of a car, so about a year ago I bought my very first "all mine" car, one Id been dreaming of for at least 15 years. I bought a "new to me" 1992 YJ, which is also red with a black hardtop---and lots of rust.

In my typical, impulsive fashion, I didnt have either of my mechanic friends look at before I bought it. Their advice (after the fact) was to try to get my money back. Well, that didnt happen, and I am now in the very slow process of replacing virtually everything. Fortunately they're still my friends, so theyre helping me out when they can. Mechanically, it's pretty sound, other than needing an oil change now.

But Im wondering, at what point does it no longer make sense to keep pouring money into it, considering that its my only car? (Please dont say that was just before I handed the seller the cash!) And yes, I will be running that question past my friends as well.

aWench (yes, that is with an e not an i.)
