Would you buy?

I found a 1994 YJ for 1200 bucks. The ad said it runs but has a small fuel leak under the hood and a little rust underneath. It is a 4cylinder 5sp. I am looking for a cheap summertime ride/ long term project. Just curious if the fuel leak is a common problem and give me some ideas were to look for it when I do go look at it.

Some people's view of a little rust underneath are actually clearance windows in the floor( you can if you cleared that rock/stump without getting out of the jeep). Better check it make sure nothing is push through.

Fuel leak? Oil leak? Air leak? Whatever! Probably needs new o rings on a injector or a line is dry rotted and needs replaced. That stuff is usually simple compared to cutting an replacing floor panels.

Could be a good deal for a starter rig

Do everything with a positive attitude, it won't always work but you'll piss enough people off to make it worthwhile.

the voices aren't real but they sure have good ideas.

The fuel injection is fixable - just be safe, wear gloves, and relieve the fuel rail pressure before you take it apart (hint - look for the little black cap on the fuel rail for relieving pressure - cover it with a paper towel to keep it out of your eyes and from dripping).

The rust....everything rusts. Its a matter of degrees and replaceable parts, and jeeps have lots of those available.

Good luck. I dig mine, even when it's yard art and can't move under it's own power. Its so cool getting it back on the road.

Fuel lines aren't so bad. I would rather do that then body rust.

Sounds like a good deal.

94 and 95 were the best years for the Yj. Due to upgrades. A good find if not rusted.
