Welcome to the forum, Ranjo. I'm brandy spankin' new here as well. Congrats on a very fine looking Jeep. I was planning on using some of those high HP stickers, but didn't think about the blue dash lights... Please let us know what you find with the clutch noise, mine is doing the same thing, despite the PO saying he had just replaced the whole assembly. Nuthin' says he did it right tho...

If yer gonna fight, fight like the third monkey on the ramp to Noah's Ark.

I'm looking forward to learning from everyone here and fixing and building my own. Would really like to meet people in the Charleston, SC vicinity that go on rides and get togethers. My baseline...88 YJ..was told it had a frame off..looks like they did and just pressure washed the frame and body, painted it and put it back together. All the brake lines were replaced..not sure why they didn't go ahead and do the rear disc conversion, gives me something to look forward to. 4.2 from a 93 YJ was put under the hood...question here, isn't the stock 88 motor carb'd, mine is fuel complaints here. I was told it 130K, but odometer doesn't work. small leaf spring lift to clear 33x12.50 MT MTZ. 5 spd tranny. stock axles, xfercase, and gears..really need to get some gears in this thing, I have yet to use 5th gear on the interstate going to work every body with new black soft top, black wheels. New carpet, new jeep seats front and rear...all around in great shape. steering is somewhat loose..surprise surprise, clutch makes funny noise, I can hear it spinning until some torque is applied, not sure if its mis aligned or throw out bearing is going..I will search unless someone else has an idea off the top of their head. heat works good, no A/C (yet), someone put in blue lights for the gauges, all of which do work, and blue led's under the dash for floor lights...I'm guessing this adds to traction in deep mud...right up there with headlight fluid and stickers that add horsepower. Well, looking forward to the replies and future conversations !
Love the murdered out yj. All blacked out.
