uh oh, a newbie
hey felt like i'd say hi to all my fellow wranglers in michigan, and give a little intro and back info on me and my Yj :)
bought my '94 wrangler off a buddy who owns a used car lot in dearborn, he gives me the auction price, so i paid $3800 for it, and it only had 78k miles!
well a year later and some work put in i'm not up to 84k and it's still running great (this is my first wrangler)
few things i had to do being that it's old:
K&N air filter
3 stage engine clean (thanks to the local oil shop)
MY ONLY BIG PROBLEM
it's a 2.8l 4cyl )':
so sometimes getting on the highway is annoying having to down shift to 3rd (once you go manual you don't go back)
but i'm trying to figure out if i should look into selling/trading for a straight 6 4.0l, or invest money in trying to get better performance
bought the car with NO audio, where the factory blown dash 2X5 speakers are i've mounted some MB quart tweeters on top of them ( cut out the metal speaker grill, jb weld some abs plastic over with the tweter mounted in it. still need to make it look custom/factory, haven't cleaned it up yet
ebaying for a 4 speaker soundbar to mount some MTX 6" components and tweeters
eventually getting a centra pod for my 6" mb quart components
thinking about building a box for the "trunk" to hold 2 12" 's
there are a few other things here and there but i think this post is long enough and i'll probably goto the YJ forum to ask for help on them
questions and comments will make my day :)
not a highway ride
Welcome! I just got my first jeep too. I found right away that the 2.5 sucks on the highway (bought in Detroit and drove to Grand Rapids). I have come to the realization that the jeep is right and the highway is wrong.:) I have since built it into something even worse on the highway and love it even more.
