New here, do you know this YJ?

Howdy guys and gals. I am a long time automotive enthusiast and have had plenty of fast fun vehicles. I picked up a 1 owner, clean Carfax, NO RUST what-so-ever (ANYWHERE- it was used as a "show Jeep" by a 70 year old retired Vietnam Veteran) 93 YJ, 4 cylinder, manual w/ A/C with 97k on the clock and appears to have seen no weather or even rain...
It had some very "odd" things done to it such as DVD player, strobe lights, lights in the mirrors etc...

I am modifying it to look like a YJ I didn't end up buying and wanted to know if any of you know the vehicle and can tell me some of the parts.

This is the Wrangler I didn't win and have already ordered Bikini Top, Tonnue, wind jammer, fender flares (I went with 4.5"... think they are 6"?), side steps and guess on the wheels.... went with 15x10's and 32's (do you think this is what it has?)














It goes in for paint (even thought factory paint is immaculate) next week.
What size lift and bumpers are on it?


Lastly, I cant seem to find some of the stuff that's on my YJ to be able to judge how much to sell it for.... I sold the wheels and tires for $600 which I think I sold too cheap since they sold in 12 hours on Craigslist... But what about this customer rear bumper and especially the fender flares/ side step combo? Where can I find that to judge how much to sell it for?

Thanks

That green and black one was on eBay, right? I remember seeing it, or one like it, and thinking it was a pretty cool paint job. Isnt it suppose to look like its sponsored by monster energy? You can remove your bumperets, and the sidestep/flares. The flares on the green jeep are smittbuilt I think. It also looks like the front bumper is the stock bumper modified to be stubby with shackles.

Thanks.
Yes it was on Ebay and yes done for Monster Energy.
I am getting the impression the stuff that's on mine is desirable. ....
Am I wrong to think that?
Have you seen a rear bumper like mine before?

I haven't seen a rear bumper like that but I might be interested in your side steps, I've been wanting to buy a pair of them for a while now.

Personally I don't like the bumper and find it undesirable, it's chrome first off, has no tire carrier, and it's tube, everything I don't care for but that does not mean someone out here doesn't think it's the coolest bumper ever! I think its a bumper your going to have to find the right buyer for.

I agree with @mijeeper80 on the bumper, I'm not a fan of chrome in Jeeps, but I bet there are people who make up for me, and love the snot outta chrome. I bought my sidesteps off a guy on Craigslist for $30, and he threw in all his other flares. If your looking to sell your front bumper wrap arounds let me know, I've been wanting some, just never gave the effort to look or buy a pair.

Well I was offered $200 for the rear bumper and $400 for side steps and flares....

I told him I would do some research on what their worth.... I can't seem to find what I have anywhere..... which is why I asked here...

Not to hijack the thread but what is it about tube that you don't like?

Yea I'd take the 600 too, for that much money I don't want the side steps, so I'd say you'd be selling them for a good price.

For 32's you will need around a 2.5 lift. 15x10 rims might be okay with the 32's depending how wide the tire is, most of us run up to a 12.50 wide tire on a 8" wide rim. if you want the tires to stick out I would go with a back spacing of around 3.75.
