As some of you know I recently picked up a 94 Wrangler. Overall it is in good shape but does need a little work. I figured I'd create this thread and ask all my questions and post updates instead of posted a bunch of different threads. It's a 4.0L 5sp with ~123000 miles, the speedometer is way off the millage should be less. I am going to order a new speedo gear to hopefully fix the speedometer.
The rear passenger shock is leaking. I'll probably just buy four new shocks.
The clutch and break pedal pad is missing. I'll order replacements online.
The driver side seat is ripped really bad. There are seat covers on but I'd still like to replace the seats as they are not very comfortable. I am not sure which seats I'll get. I'd like a seat that I do not have to modify the bracket.
I hate not having a center console. I'll have to get one. Not sure which one.
The heat control will not stay in warm it will either stay in the middle or in cold. Not sure why it would do this or how to fix it.
There is the typical rust on the fenders and rear door. I also have a rust hole on the passenger side under the door. I am not sure how I am going to fix the rust. I know I'll sand it done and coat it with POR-15. For the fenders I may put fiberglass behind the holes and then use a little bondo and re-paint. For the rear door I am not sure if I want to replace it or try and fix it. I do have a welder but I'm not the greatest welder in the world, so we shall see. As far as the hole under the passenger side door I was first thinking of patching it with fiber glass. I do want to put rocker guards on so I am not sure if fiber glass would be strong enough if I have to put a bolt through it for the rocker guard. I may just try and cut a piece of metal and weld it in. Since a rock guard will be covering it, it does not have to look perfect and at least it would seal the hole up.
Both door panels are not in the greatest shape. The passenger side door handle keeps popping out. I am leaning towards getting new doors. I would really like full doors.
I think I may have a leak in the trans. There was not any leaks when I first looked and bought the Jeep but I noticed something under the jeep in the morning. It may just be water from rain but I'm not sure. I really have not had a chance to look.
The PO put speakers in separate boxes on the sides of the rear seat. I'd really like to get a sound bar.
Wranglers are pretty capable off road stock so I am not sure if I am going to lift it or not. It is my dd right now. Got sick of getting 8 mpg with the Ram.
I'm sure there is more. I'll keep adding as I go.
