1995 Rio Grande 2.5L 4X4 Lifted, Picked up a Tinker Toy

Well

Recently I scored this rust free 1995 YJ with the intention of flipping, but slowly falling in love with it... So I replaced the exhaust manifold gasket, new plugs, cap and wires, oil and diff fluids and gave it a good cleaning. No rust at all. 186k on the clock. Clutch and trans work flawlessly

Down fall, not top..... but its a clean ride. I did replace and ad the bumpers that you see below, got these for a steal sometime ago..... they look good on the YJ

keep or sale??// Hmmmm

My first Jeep was a Rio Grande! I’d keep it if you’re happy with the condition.

Well, had this Bad Lands winch in the garage for another project I will never get to and since it has been sitting for 9 months on the shelf I decided to put it on the white 95. The Bad Lands universal winch mount got trimmed 2" on either side, then rounded the corners and sprayed the mount with armor bed spray to match the texture on the bumpers.... Looking good so far....

Alright, got the windshield bolts out relatively easy.. Short burst with impact drill..... followed by tapping the torx head into the bolt and then turning with a breaker bar... came out with some muscle, but they all snapped loose.... Did the 92 yj the same way.... no need for heat or anything special for me..

Also finished the LED Bar mount for the light on the front of the winch.... getting ready to post it up seriously to sell...
