Getting 89 yj

Hey guys, im new around here and i am going to sell my 95 tahoe 2dr 4wd to buy an 89 yj from a friend of mine. It's in pretty decent condition, and am hoping me selling my baby will be worth it. I just want to know in your opinion and from your experiences what the upkeep on an 89 yj would be like or what i can expect.

welcome, Well 1st your buying a older jeep. What kind of shape is it in? Rust? How does it run? You will want to check for rust below the door and the foot wells as well as frame rot, also check for rusted out area's where the roll bar meets the floor. 89 was a carb model if its the 6cyl and fuel injected if its the 4cyl. The carbs can have issues. Post some pic's and we can give you a better idea based on looks.
