Thanks for the heads up but it's all good... I'm on 2 motorcycle forums and even a global moderator on a 3rd.. I'm ready for advice, puns, comments, arguments, etc from everyone... :D..

The sad thing is i have had my YJ for a week and only driven it once.. As soon as i got it i tore it down :banghead:

Nah, just new and still in black primer... It's a 91 and has what i guess is the normal rot.. front fenders are shot, rockers aren't the best, tailgate has rot, windshield frame not that bad and drivers floor board is done... I have all ready done both fenders, welded in new floor boards tonight as well as repaired the rockers, new tailgate is on, windshield frame awaits mounting..

I just bought a new set of xenon TJ style flares, a to z rocker gaurds and a ton of other crap for her.......ahhh the money is going fast :D


Here's how it was when i bought it... it's torn down now and will be better than ever when i'm done... still deciding whether to throw in a chevy SB

Welcome my friend- a warning -the rust continues to come- cut it clean - and move on to the next cancer. Especially up North- originally from south central PA before moving to KY.

Thanks guys for the welcome...... well lesson learned tonight,,,,,, never judge a vehicle on looks... what a piece of chit this thing turned out to be...the body rot i can deal with but after i had the passenger side done i moved to the drivers,,,, guess what, the from the cowl to the rear wheel well is a 1/4 inch thick layer of body filler :eek: WTF.I mean the guy took the time to even carve out the word jeep out of filler....... I'm ready to throw in the towel... Ya it came with with lift kit, M/T wheels and tires, Warn winch, rear locker, and a bunch of other new stuff but i cant wait to see what turns up wrong next..... should hav been a dead give away when i noticed the track bars were literally cut off................. Sorry, had to vent.. :banghead:

No ones fault but my own.. I looked at so many and i guess i just got tired of searching and bought this one without really looking at it good... Living in NY, i have to stick to a YJ to beat the inspections laws if i decide to throw a smal block in there... Trying to find a clean, rust free YJ up this way is damn near impossible..I'll work with what i have and just beat the hell out of it and enjoy while it's in one piece..
