Kenwood hu
cb
hilift

The wife and i had a 1992 YJ in the past it was a great jeep but one mishap on the trail one day took out the motor and that was the end. So we sold it and regretted it ever since
i had a 1994 Bmw 325is that was a great car but just was not what i was looking for and then "Emma" showed up on Craigs List, i found a buyer for the bmw @3800.00 and the next day i went to see her.
The lady selling had her listed for 3500.00 with the bran new lift tires and wheels but after looking over her closely i said im sorry but the best i could offer would be 2400.00 and to my surprise the lady said Thats fine so i paid her in cash and was on my way home with my new YJ
Now im taking small steps to to restore and rebuild her Ground up and long task at hand i know but in the end will be well worth it
the day after i got her home

History: I got my jeep in January 2011 and have spent about every dime i could make on her. i got it stock besides the lift and some no name 32" tires, with a broken frame, a Peugeot transmission on its last leg, and more wiring problems than i could count. I spent the next year getting her back into running condition being my DD to school, this past fall i finally got the money for a axle swap and its all been down hill from there, wheeling every chance i get and still keeping her street legal. its got a good start but ive still got lots of plans for the future.

Putting the rebuilt motor from the tan Jeep, into mine.

When I was 14 I thought jeeps looked cool so I got a job and started saving up for one. By the time I was 15 I bought my 88 yj with 128k completely stock. I knew absolutely nothing about cars, but I thought it looked good so I didnt care about the mechanical condition about 6 months later the clutch went out so I bought a repair manual and taught myself how to do it. After that all hell broke loose and I was constantly working on it... Long story short I have now replaced every part on my jeep besides the body and frame. I can now tell you how just about any part of a car/truck works because ive either replaced it or rebuilt it. Now that im 20 I have my jeep just about where I want it, until I go to full width axles and a custom cage which is coming *this summer.
When I first got it

1994 Jeep Wrangler S

I bought it used in 1996 and have been tinkering about on it ever since. I don't have the amount of money necessary to do what I want to it all at once, so I’ve spread it out over the course of a number of years. I purchased it in California before communism and while I was still in the Marine Corps. It’s been with me through all of life’s ups and downs; children, divorce, career changes, deployments, etc.
• 2.5L low output four cylinder
• Banks header and catback
• Taurus 2 speed fan
• Converted to power steering
• Dodge Ram alternator
• Dodge Dakota steering box.
• Stock 5 speed and transfer case
• Rubicon Express SYE
• Rubicon Express CV rear driveshaft
• Open Ford 8.8 rear with RuffStuff kit and diff cover
• Stock shaft and Dana 30 front
• 35x12.50 Goodyear Kevlars on 10x15 ProComp fake lockers
• Rubicon Express 4.5” Extreme Duty lift
• Off Road Technology bumpers front
• Off Road Technology bumpers rear w/tire carrier
• Jeeptubes.com stinger
• Mile Marker 8,000 lbs electric winch with fabricated fairlead and light mount
• Home fabricated Jeeptubes.com fender flares
• Poison Spyder Crusher Corners
• Smittybilt side bars
• IPF headlight kit with some cheap H4 bulbs
• PIAA off road lights
• KC tail lights
• Rear LED reverse light bar
• Mastercraft Rubicon Dirtsport seats with Mastercraft 3pt harnesses
• Grant steering wheel
• Herculiner’d interior
• Raingler nets
• Bestop Full top with tinted windows, full bikini top, tonneau and slider uppers

The drivetrain currently sports a tired 2.5L low output four cylinder to the stock 5 speed and transfer that has a Rubicon Express SYE twisting a Rubicon Express CV driveshaft and open RuffStuff appointed 8.8 rear and a stock shaft and 30 up front. This is spinning slowly, some 35x12.50 Goodyear Kevlars on 10x15 ProComp fakies. The engine has a Banks header and catback, a Taurus fan, and converted power steering using a mix of YJ and ZJ parts. Also added a Ram alternator and a Dakota steering box.
The lift is a Rubicon Express 4.5” Extreme Duty lift w/ RE shocks. There is also a 2” BL that I may drop one day, but I recently lifted my tank into that space so I may have to clearance it first.
I have some one-off Off Road Technology bumpers (front and rear w/tire carrier). The winch bar of this blem front bumper was too low, so I chopped it and mounted a Jeeptubes.com stinger that I will eventually tie into a grill guard or the tube fenders. On the bumper is a Mile Marker 8,000# winch that works so far. The tube fenders are also Jeeptubes.com and some steel I got from old wall lockers that I formed and welded. I had some help from a friend on the fronts, and realized I had the skills to do the rears on my own. The rears are on some Poison Spyder Crusher Corners. The Jeep also has some older Smittybilt nerf bars that my wife needs to be able to get in the Jeep.

I have an IPF headlight kit with H4 bulbs, PIAA lights up front, KC tail lights out in the rear. I built a license plate mount with light and moved the plate to the spare. I fabricated a reverse light bar with some LEDs that tucks in nicely under the bumper, we’ll see if it survives better than the cheap Wal-mart lights that died there. Before I left on my current deployment, I put in some strip LEDs I’m trying to use as rocklights, but haven’t hooked them up just yet. Maybe while I’m on leave.
Inside the Jeep has some Mastercraft Rubicon Dirtsport seats front and rear, with Mastercraft 3pt harnesses. There is a Grant steering wheel as well. I removed the carpet back in ’99, poured in some Herculiner and never looked back. When the engine and automatic go in, the whole dash and related materials will change out. A set of Raingler nets keeps it all together in the back. I have the larger bikini top that Bestop has that covers the back and occasionally I run with a tonneau cover over the rear. Winter time I run a full soft top with slider uppers on my doors and tinted rear plastic. I fabricated a rear deck behind the rear seat that keeps everything from falling out.
I did pull my ’95 suburban engine, 4L60e transmission and transfer case from my old suburban before I scrapped it, but I’m thinking towards a nice LQ4 or LQ9 instead of the TBI 5.7L sitting in the garage now.
