Honest opinion

This is my 94 yj, the previous owner painted it black and the 5th gear is shot. What do you think?

Do you love it? That's all that matters.

It was an option for YJ's but I don't know anyone that has it.

A good looking start. Everthing that's wrong with it can be fixed. How deep are your pockets?

Drive it till it blows & then rebuild!

Looks good to me...like they said, how much do you love it and how deep are your pockets? Yours looks new compared to what mine looked like when I towed it home. 6weeks of cutting and welding on the body and frame just to get it to a solid body and frame. Then clutch, timing set, brakes and lines, exhaust work, tune up, fluid changes. All that just got it to the point of drivable and able to pass Pa inspection and emissions. Still have a long way to go but it sure is fun.

A Jeep is not for the faint of heart. If you want to just drive something & never look under the hood, a Honda or Toyota would be a better choice. If you want to have fun and like to tinker, If you are okay with shoddy workmanship and mediocre reliability, If you don't mind some rust & scratches, If you REALLY like the "cool" factor no matter how it bad (or good) it looks….keep the Jeep.
