New beater ZJ, some???

Maybe going for a DD/Beater swap, might get this one for cheap, lol looks like a good project.
but dont know to much about Those 5.2's

http://m.finn.no/car/used/ad.html?fi...&engine_fuel=1

It would be Nice to upgrade to a 95 limited with V8 from my 94 4,0 laredo,,,
It has new brakes all around, new bushings and balljoints all over the front end,
98 5.9 interior stereo and hood,
Good Winter wheels,,,

Licence plates been off, need new periodic control to Get them back on, seller Claims rear diff seal is only thing need to be fixed from the control list.

It also have some idle issues. Seller tried new IAC, but maybe not cleaned Throttle body, or TPS/MAP?

It also have a bad battery, can this maybe be the one and only issue causing electronic to Go haywire and cause idle issues?

Anyone???

Going to see it and hopefully buy it in this weekend.

Bad battery can definitely cause you problems, these vehicles are sensitive to that.

I wanna say your trans is a 46rh..? I believe 93-95 5.2's had the bigger, hydraulic transmission, I know 95 they changed a lot of stuff. Look in the FAQ's section. lots of stuff there

ATF +4 in the trans (even says so on the dipstick)
Axles, 75-90 or 75-140 + LS additive for the rear.
Transfer, ATF i use the same as in my trans.
(My trans has been rebuilt and works with dexIII now)

The only thing i have noticed is that the idle is a little smoother + it looks good in the enginebay with red wires and msd coil.
I have a set of doug thorley headers that i am going to put on it sometime in the future and already have a 3"cat muffler and pipe from IRO.

Wich btw was a complete pain in the *** too install with the jeep at stock height because of their pipe being a one piece.

Always a great start to do the maintenance first and then go from there. Oh, by the way that broken front driver's side turn signal light assembly lens is killing me! hahaha. Keep it up!
