I bought the Jeep back in July of 2010 (I was a Toyota guy for 20 years) It only had 78K on it so I thought it would be a good platform. It had a worn out saggy ProComp lift & shocks with 28” tires on it. It ran great. I joined Jeep Forum the next day because even though I had been wheeling for a long time I really knew nothing about Jeeps. I lurked on here and learned as much as I could & started formulating a plan. I collected parts for almost 2 years and did a bunch of normal maintenance (slave cylinder/clutch/motor mounts & stuff). So here it is now. I didn’t do it all myself, I had a lot of help.

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


And current

Thanks to all of you who have helped me with my build so far. Couldn't have done it without all the help ive received. Anyways, My name is Jordan, Im 18, just graduated, and am now working full time. Takes me a little while to save up money for the jeep, but i take my time and try my best. Got the jeep as stock as i could find. The Only thing this jeep had done to it was a body lift and it was sticker-bomb'd. As soon as i got it, i began (in my opinion) improving it. Anyways, its not quite where i want it to be, but its getting closer with every mod i make.

Thanks guys, heres some pics.

1994 Jeep Wrangler S
I bought it used in 1996 and have been tinkering about on it ever since. I don't have the amount of money necessary to do what I want to it all at once, so I’ve spread it out over the course of a number of years. I purchased it in California before communism and while I was still in the Marine Corps. It’s been with me through all of life’s ups and downs; children, divorce, career changes, deployments, etc.*
• 2.5L low output four cylinder
• Banks header and catback
• Taurus 2 speed fan
• Converted to power steering
• Dodge Ram alternator*
• Dodge Dakota steering box.
• Stock 5 speed and transfer case
• Rubicon Express SYE
• Rubicon Express CV rear driveshaft
• Open Ford 8.8 rear with RuffStuff kit and diff cover
• Stock shaft and Dana 30 front
• 35x12.50 Goodyear Kevlars on 10x15 ProComp fake lockers
• Rubicon Express 4.5” Extreme Duty lift
• Off Road Technology bumpers front*
• Off Road Technology bumpers rear w/tire carrier
• Jeeptubes.com stinger
• Mile Marker 8,000 lbs electric winch with fabricated fairlead and light mount
• Home fabricated Jeeptubes.com fender flares
• Poison Spyder Crusher Corners
• Smittybilt side bars
• IPF headlight kit with some cheap H4 bulbs
• PIAA off road lights
• KC tail lights
• Rear LED reverse light bar
• Mastercraft Rubicon Dirtsport seats with Mastercraft 3pt harnesses
• Grant steering wheel
• Herculiner’d interior
• Raingler nets
• Bestop Full top with tinted windows, full bikini top, tonneau and slider uppers

The drivetrain currently sports a tired 2.5L low output four cylinder to the stock 5 speed and transfer that has a Rubicon Express SYE twisting a Rubicon Express CV driveshaft and open RuffStuff appointed 8.8 rear and a stock shaft and 30 up front. This is spinning slowly, some 35x12.50 Goodyear Kevlars on 10x15 ProComp fakies. The engine has a Banks header and catback, a Taurus fan, and converted power steering using a mix of YJ and ZJ parts. Also added a Ram alternator and a Dakota steering box.
The lift is a Rubicon Express 4.5” Extreme Duty lift w/ RE shocks. There is also a 2” BL that I may drop one day, but I recently lifted my tank into that space so I may have to clearance it first.
I have some one-off Off Road Technology bumpers (front and rear w/tire carrier). The winch bar of this blem front bumper was too low, so I chopped it and mounted a Jeeptubes.com stinger that I will eventually tie into a grill guard or the tube fenders. On the bumper is a Mile Marker 8,000# winch that works so far. The tube fenders are also Jeeptubes.com and some steel I got from old wall lockers that I formed and welded. I had some help from a friend on the fronts, and realized I had the skills to do the rears on my own. The rears are on some Poison Spyder Crusher Corners. The Jeep also has some older Smittybilt nerf bars that my wife needs to be able to get in the Jeep.*
I have an IPF headlight kit with H4 bulbs, PIAA lights up front, KC tail lights out in the rear. I built a license plate mount with light and moved the plate to the spare. I fabricated a reverse light bar with some LEDs that tucks in nicely under the bumper, we’ll see if it survives better than the cheap Wal-mart lights that died there. Before I left on my current deployment, I put in some strip LEDs I’m trying to use as rocklights, but haven’t hooked them up just yet. Maybe while I’m on leave.
Inside the Jeep has some Mastercraft Rubicon Dirtsport seats front and rear, with Mastercraft 3pt harnesses. There is a Grant steering wheel as well. I removed the carpet back in ’99, poured in some Herculiner and never looked back. When the engine and automatic go in, the whole dash and related materials will change out. A set of Raingler nets keeps it all together in the back. I have the larger bikini top that Bestop has that covers the back and occasionally I run with a tonneau cover over the rear. Winter time I run a full soft top with slider uppers on my doors and tinted rear plastic. I fabricated a rear deck behind the rear seat that keeps everything from falling out.
I am considering a LQ4 or LQ9 possibly in the future.

-This jeep was originally my brothers; he died unexpectedly 10 years ago, and it became mine. I have built it up over the years, but a lot was done by him originally. This jeep is not the biggest on the trail, but it is very capable. I have it at a point where I am happy with it, and how it performs. I would really like to tackle the Rubicon trail in this Jeep some day.

-YJ year of production - 1990

-Specifications and modifications

4.2 w/Howell TBI; AX15; NP231 w/Tera 4:1; 8.8; 4.88 gears; SOA; JB4x4 crossover steering w/1 ton TRE's; 35" Dunlop Mud Rovers; Metal Cloak front fenders; TJ rear flares; home brew bumpers, tire carrier & sliders; York OBA; yada, yada, yada.

-Brief history of your jeep and how it came to be.

I bought it for basically nothing with a blown motor, blown tranny, and blown rear end. Other than all those great features it was also bone stock with the exception of 2" lift shackles and 33's. The paint was also faded to the point the factory primer was showing through. Many hours and cuss words later, I replaced the motor, trans, rear, went SOA, took it all apart and shot the entire thing in Monsta Liner (Road Rash and Black).


Basically how it sat when I got it, with the addition of a set of TJ flares.

Now..... Couple shots from Moab.

Golden Crack



I think this one was on Poison Spyder but can't remember
