An old trick we used was a small magnet on the body. Place the magnet around the wheel wells, under and I front of the doors, above the rear bumper. If the magnet won't stick, it's painted over bondo...

Looks clean, and a good price. I would check the frame out real good by the spring hangers front and rear with a small hammer, make sure it's solid and not rusting through. A locker in the front...

JB are considered the best, AA is the original, right up there with JB, the rest are knock offs. My only concern would be to avoid China made.

Sounds like it could be in the steering column, maybe a short when turning left.

If your readings are correct both seem a little off. Alternator should be showing 14+, a good battery will be over 13. That said, the starter may be a problem if it's dragging. This would be more...

u bolts should be closer to 90#, and need to be re tightened a couple of times, and should be new. If they were loose, and it sounds like they were, check your spring pin. If there was movement it...

If they really are 4" that may require an SYE and new drive shaft, something you can't afford, at the least you're looking at a drop TC case. Thing is you won't know till you have done it. I say look...

Altitude affects all engines, the less you have to lose, the more you will feel it. The fuel injection will help on fuel mixture, but nothing can correct the loss of power at high altitude.

Problem with the 4.2 is its carbureted which if you're good with carbs is not a big deal. Here in Cali it's a bitch to get a carbed YJ to pass smog, it's also not as powerful as the 4.0HO. If you can...

What he said, with a effort to find a 95 with a 4.0. The 95 YJ was the best year with larger u joints, external slave, and other improvements. Unless it's for off road only you'll want the 4.0 for...

I have the Bilstein 5100's. Also be sure your tires are not overinflated, your spring bushings move freely, your front and rear trac bar are off (if you're still leaf springs). I'll PM you some info.

I agree with going with new hubs, I prefer the Timkin which are a bit more but with larger tires I feel are worth it. Also the better 760 U joints are a no brainer.

Look for a jeep from the southwest, no rust problems. 95 is the best year YJ. Get the 4.0, 5speed or Auto, your choice.
