need some opinons please
im looking at a 89 yj 4.2 with an automatic thats in a million pieces. it needs to be all assembled. he has everything except a radiator, roll bar and the windsheild frame and some nuts and bolts. the motor and trany run good so he says. needs some body work but can still a be driver with the body damage. hes asking $800-$100 for everything. just curios if this is a good deal.

If it works and your a mechanic... sure. I'd look at it.

yeah sounds like an okay deal to me, as long as you dont mind doing a little work, and that the guy is being honest about the engine and tranny.

theres not much to a YJ. thats what i like about them, everything is simple. and i bet you can find a windshield frame out of a junk yard or off craigslist pretty cheap.

Why was it taken apart?
ask lots of ??
What axles??gears??

the guy bought it for had top, roll cage, fender, and the lift. he bought it from a guy and the insurance was going to total it cause someone backed into the side. but it is fixable if i want to do it. as far as the axles he thinks there stock.

A guy has an entire Jeep, but it's laying around dis-assembled?
Even for a grand I don't know if I'd do it.

A guy doesn't have an entire Jeep laying around unless he was selling parts and buying parts and I have a feeling not everything will match up.

Fabrication builds character though...

Radiator, rollbar, and windshield bracket missing proves my point.
This is not the same as buying axles off a guy...

sounds like a money vacuum and its gonna suck you dry, try your patience, and sanity. If you need a parts jeep thats one thing, but if you want a jeep to enjoy spend a little more up front, get a driver, and enjoy life.

My 2 cents

Or offer him less. Wheel and deal man!
