Trade '93 YJ 2.5 for any Jeep with bigger engine
Have a 1993 YJ with a soft top and hard top, half doors too. No rust at all and in great shape. Gloss black paint with diamond plate protectors, full length nerf step bars, and front bumper push/brush guard. Has dull width rear bumper trailer hitch receiver.

New parts (and I mean BRAND SPANKING NEW)

Tires and wheels
Full size Electric fan and adjustable thermostat & relay(proper kit)
Water pump (replaced just in case)
Radiator and hoses/clamps/cap
Idle air controller
Throttle position sensor
Temperature sending unit
Oil pressure sending unit
Cold air intake (forgot brand but very nice)
Intake/Exhaust gasket
Valve cover gasket
Oil pan gasket
All bulbs
B&M shifter handles (Black anodized but polishable too)

Jeep is in great shape. Floors are solid, no rust ANYWHERE. Transmission is strong. Glass, brakes, vac lines, seats(including rear bench), guages, shifter boots, are all great too.

Has oil leak at back of oil pan. Like a moron I didn't use gasket sealer around the gasket. Also, has the common problem of the front axle vacuum locker thingy sticking. According to the posts this is an easy fix (haven't done it yet, never had a YJ, only CJ's).

I would like to trade this YJ for another Jeep of any year (even CJ 5's or CJ 7's) as long as it has a 6cyl or 8cyl engine. Have a clear title. I'll consider trades for a small 4x4 truck too. It doesn't have to have a top but it has to run well.

This 4 banger just isn't enough for what I want to do.

Since I've replaced all these parts, I've driven this jeep exactly 10 miles. Took it through some hills with a loaded trailer and disn't like the way she pulled. I've always had a bigger engine and miss a good ole' 4.2

Overall, this is a fine Jeep and a gas saver. Rides nicely, no tracking or steering issues or wobbles.

Call me anytime at 479-216-1988. Email is I have texting too. Will send pics upon request. I live in Mena, Arkansas so we can split the miles and meet if you want.

Thanks guys!

I forgot to mention that it has a brand new Sony CD/radio. New in-dash Pioneer speakers, and new Pioneer mountable speakers in the back.

Also, if you want to keep your wheels or tires while we exchange vehicles, then that may be possible too.

Ok, fixed the oil leak. Whole engine, tranny and t-case has been powerwashed. Powertrain is imaculately clean, no grime, no rust. Next up is painting the differential covers.

Hope someone wants to trade, she's getting to be so nice I might keep her!

Yes. Mena, Arkansas. Depending on how far, we can drive to a meeting place as well. It would be nice to go on a road trip. Call me (I'm up all hours) 479-216-1988. I also have more pictures ready upon request by text or email.

Jeeplover, I'm an Army Vet as well. Not disabled, but came awfully close more than once.

Thank you for your service, Comrade.
