    The new YJ!!

    well Bought myself a good solid YJ today!! 1988 yj 4.2L. Body has almost no rust or anything. a few tiny spots but not noticeable. Frame is very solid as it was never winter driven. has Brand new tires, new clutch, new shocks, new ball joins, new U joins and a pretty good alarm also came with all the tops too witch are brand new and still in boxes! I would like to thank Jeepstr too for helping me get it! Plans are to just build off of it, epoxy prime and armor coat the frame, and have some fun with it
    plans: epoxy prime and coat frame
    -4.0L swap with ax-15
    -33's
    -new paint job

    how did you find such a clean and rust free jeep. I spent ... well I wont say, and I got a sand blastable frame and another tub. I had to basically buy two jeeps to make one half decent one. LUCKY

    I was just sort of browsing kijiji and found this in Kitchener, guy house sold and he wanted it gone, he was the owner since new and had no use for the jeep anymore. he was the type of guy that takes good care of his vehicles.

    The new YJ!!

    Pretty good score for sure, and God I hate our winters.

    I'd get rid of that high output sticker. Or maybe add a unicorn sticker next to it?
