Kind of new to the jeep thing.

Hi everyone. I kind of fell into being a jeep owner, it's a sad but happy situation. My father passed from esophogeal cancer July of 2016 at age 51 and was working on a jeep rebuild. He got most of the way done and never really got to enjoy it. He tore this 95 yj to the frame and rebuilt it. I fortunately got the jeep and plan on finishing everything for him. There was still plastic wrap on the leaf springs. He has the 2.5 l engine with 4.88 gears and 35s. This jeep is so clean, it's hard to follow in someone's footsteps and currently I'm working on what I think is wiring problems. Speedometer gets power but stays at 0, fuel gauge same way gets power but doesn't move. These are all aftermarket gauges and look very nice. The black photo is the before and the green is the after. Any way glad to find this forum, Jeep on.

Sorry about your dad, but that is an awesome vehicle to remember him every time you drive it. I've had a 1965 Chevy for 33 years that my grand parents bought new, I'll never sell it.
