New addition to the Family

Hey guys
My gf and I Just recently got a 92 YJ for 4K Originally we wanted a TJ but with our limited funds we found this YJ in a Damn good condition . It has no leaks and interior isn't bad at all and man this thing call haul ASSSSSSS !!!!!
Specs:
1992 Jeep Wrangler
4.0L I6 MPI AMC 242 "Power Tech HO" (High Output)
120K miles
AX-15 5speed
Front dana 30 - 4.10 gear ratio
Rear dana 35 - 4.10 gear ratio
I think it might have a lift on it but Im not sure nether was the previous owner....but we also ordered the RC 4' lift from Ryan at RC hopefully will be coming this week .











So what are some good Mods I can do to this thing ???

BTW there is a slight knocking when idling in Neutral ... what steps should I do to find the source of this problem ?? Oil and O2 sensor has just been recently changed .

Great find!! you already have the ideal set up 4.10's and 4.0l. I added a Dynomax Ultraflo, and took off my rattling () cat, and it really made a big difference, without too much uneeded noise.

Thanks guys

Well finally finished the RC 4" lift install this weekend had alot of trouble with the pitman arm we broke one pitman arm puller then tried it with a nicer puller didn't work so just we decided to just cut it off :P Then we got some cragar soft 8's and bfgoodrich 285/70/r17 for it.
Also im going to have to get some rear boom shackles to lift the rear up a bit because its rubbing .


Man this jeep thing is expensive :maddance: .

Then we took it out on a test run with a couple of friends . Man this rides better than stock flexes really nice and the ride isn't so bumpy . So far no vibs from driveline at all the angle isn't that bad but will invest in a SYE kit anyways.

btw im thinking about painting the softtop any Idea's on how can this be done ?

Also

Anyone know any good write ups for DIY rock sliders for YJ ?

here are some pics :
Right after lift .



With Lift and 33"s

Rear sits kinda low

I noticed you put bump stop add ons on the axle....Did it come with the kit??

What kind of clearance do you have between the frame bumpstop and the axle bumpstop at ride height??

Just curious because that does not look like a lot of travel and I know you have to limit your suspension at some point so you do not damage anything.

General question...Does anyone know what the original bumpstop space is for a stock wrangler and does that have to be maintained for any lift amount??

The sound is probably lifter tap. Its very common in inline sixes, just because the camshaft is so long. Search 'lifter tap' and you should find some fixes for it. I asked my dad about this, and he said its no real problem when at idle. If it does that at rpm's, then there's a problem. Mine does it too.

I wasn't aware you could paint a soft top. Is there a product to use?
