I posted a build thread of my YJ in the builders section but thought I would do one here as well.
I bought my 88 almost 3 years ago from a customer of mine in Dumas TX. I own a wrecking yard and he had a jeep in his shop that needed a BA10 transmission. It was popping out of reverse. I was unable to find him a good one so his customer decided to sell it. I offered $1500, seller wanted $2000.00 and we settled on $1850. It was equipped with the 4.2,5spd,3.07 drive train and a 2.5" procomp lift kit with 31's. Drove to Dumas to pick it up and was a proud owner of a jeep.
Brought it back, pulled the trans out and sent it to the transmission shop. He was able to fix the reverse gear.
Here is what it looked like when I got it.
After the trans was fixed I drove it around, registered on a couple of jeep forums to learn all about my new toy. First thing I did was change the wheels cause the tires were rubbing on the springs as I turned. Then it was time to ditch the track bars. That made a world of difference.
Found a tube bumper that would fit and also bought a 79 F150 that had a warn winch on the front for $50.00 bucks.
Also had a friend give me some KC lights that I mounted on the windshield.
And this is pretty much how I drove it till I rebuilt it. I did buy a 95 sahara and swapped in the AX15 after my BA10 started having problems again. Installed the MC2150 carb and did the nutter bypass. The original motor stated smoking real bad so I bought an 87 YJ at the sale for the motor. That motor ran real good and best of all didn't look like a bug sprayer going down the road.
