My jeep started as a project to keep my focused on changing schools. Wanted something safer then a muscle car. I promptly broke the jeep, a lot. Within two years I blew up the engine and went the road less traveled and built up the 4cyl. Everything on my jeep has broken and been replaced or fixed recently. I've learned more then I care to admit about fixing these old rigs and love taking it out to see what it can do.

One day last year I just decided, I want a jeep!
Then I spent 2 months endlessly searching and found this bone stock Islander and couldnt pass it up. Paid too much but its a jeep
I didn't do much to it for the first year except enjoy it.
Payed it off this year and decided I needed to start making it better.
Got rid of the hardtop for soft, ditched trackbars. added 1"BL and shackles, traded my stock wheels for the mud kings(I won that trade), some paint here and BFH there.
I am in the middle of gathering parts for some well needed upgrades (axles, sye, lift, etc) Wheeling stock is fun but sometimes you need just a little more
One thing thats wasfun is doing more stuff then some well built rigs and Rubicons were even trying to do. (even when you get stuck, whoops) I have big plans for this thing and loving every minute of it!

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 That's fine so i paid her in cash and was on my way home with my new YJ
Since i got her i took on the task of Rebuilding Ground up including frame, tub, and lots of gutting, cutting, grinding, and welding All was done in the driveway with the most basic of tools and ALOT Of Very Long Days and Nights but still only took about 3weeks to put her all back together. All told She turned out Just the way i wanted and im loving it
I still have a bunch of things i want to get done but it is time i put them off for now and work on them at a later time , I need a Break LOL
The day after i got her home

-I bought this YJ a little over a year ago, it was the same color and specs as my old yj which i totaled about 4 years ago, although my old YJ was bone stock and this obviously is not. I had the money to buy a XJ, or a TJ, but there is something i just love about YJ's maybe cause there unique square lights, or how simple they are, i don't know. Anyway when i bought it, she only had a small lift and 32's, it has come a long way since then(in only a year), and it still has a long way to go. My YJ is like blood to me, its family. She is not perfect by any means, and i like it that way, i kind of enjoy the quirks and noises that she has. My YJ is here for good and i wouldn't change a thing!

I bought the YJ back in 2011 thinking it was going to be a mild fixer upper, well, I was wrong. Not knowing anything about vehicles I thought it would be a few spark plugs here, some bondo and paint there. I soon realized it was not going to be so easy. I found jeepforum and away I went. Reading as much as I could on here and with a lot of trial and error, I made it work. Two years later I know this YJ like the top of my foot. :-)

i traded my 24ft pontoon boat for this yj 4 years ago. and its been a project since. it started out as a 4.2 carb and automatic jeep. i learned real quick how much i hated it lol, over the years i have removed the 4.2 and installed a Fuel injected 4.0 with complete computer and harness, ive removed the tf999 trans and installed a ax-15 and everything needed for the swap. after wheeling it for a few years i wanted more. so recently i have stretched my yj 12inches , went spring over, and installed waggy d44's . Now i have no shop or anything, ive done all this work by hand tools and in my front yard. everything ive used to build this jeep is all from other jeeps. including 04 grand cherokee, 06 wrangler, 98 grand cherokee, 97 wrangler, 91 wrangler, 89 wagoneer. and a 95 chevy astro van steering box, when i did this build i did not want anything custom made, i wanted to have factory parts from other vehicles so its easy to get parts and repair if i broke anything.
Come on by! It's easy to network locally when you join a 4x4 club especially when all the clubs in your state are united and invited to each other's runs. You meet poor folk like me or run into guys that own some of the big companies you only aspire to order from and drool when you see their products. The great uniting factor is that we are all jeepers at heart and are willing to help each other out even if its just a little. That's what the jeep wave is all about: community. The wave is the tip of the iceberg.
