New YJ owner

Just picked up this yj a few days back. 1993 4.0 with 158,000 kms on it with full service history and all original dealer service books. Mods are basic and consist of ome springs/shocks, extended fender flares, 31" tires on 15s. Didnt need much besides a good cleanup and minor service. Below are a few pics. Does anybody know where i could find a replacement rear fog light? The current one is cracked and being that its not a US spec part I'm having trouble finding it. Also what is that bracket installed on the rear passenger side fender next to the tail light? Thank you

The bracket, I've been told, is a bump stop for the tire/tailgate. The rear fog light I've never seen before.

Never heard of a rear fog light. No such item listed anywhere. What happened to the interior?

A fog light in that position is a common addition to non-USA spec vehicles. It is brighter than a standard brake light and is used in situations of limited visibility. In the desert, it would be used during a sand storm...

Welcome to JeepForum, you've just found one of the best jeep sites anywhere!

Very nice find, and it has all the service documents!
As previously noted, the fog light is not part of the US specification - it may have been added by a local dealer or by the previous owner.

Yep. That's why sometimes you see an Audi our Mercedes that looks like the drivers side taillight is stuck on lol

Thanks for the input guys. @wdnewman i took the interior out to get it cleaned up; its it good shape just 20 years worth of stains on it. Since the interior is out anyway going to give the floor a good clean and respray it. Not sure the direction im going to take with this jeep yet as i already have an fj (pic below) i use for offroading.

Hmm, that fj looks like it is having trouble on top of that dune. It gets stuck easily?

I would just clean that yj up and cruise it the way it is. Its good looking. Use the fj as the off road toy and the yj as the girl getter.

I would bet that after you get a feel for that YJ, you will be throwing rocks at the FJ for off road use.
