Personally, I'm a fan of the 95 Orvis more than the other 2, even though it's more common. I like the red piping on the seats and the older interior carries the color scheme better IMO.
I'll agree with you there. The older ZJ interior works better with the colors. The more I see them, the more the older interior style grows on me.

So, I've had this cold draft on my left foot since the weather got cold and I knew the rubber boot for the hood release cable was out of it's hole.
No big deal.

But then I went to put said rubber boot back in it's proper place...
...and pushed almost my whole fist through the hole as Weezy's firewall gave way to the pressure of my hand.

I stuffed some rags in it for the time being....

I've got a brand new 11lb spool of wire ready to go, a bunch of 20ga steel, and only about 100psi left in my gas bottle(if that).
I guess I gotta cough up $50 or so for a big *** bottle of weldin' gas and Ill be good to go.

Good thing I love the ol' gal!

Adjusted my steering box to tighten up the steering and it worked nicely. Just need to adjust the drag link again to re-center the wheel.

Sent from...wait, where am I?

And to ask again, how long have you been selling spark plugs?



Orvis's are great Jeeps. Nice ones are hard to come by. 93 Grand Wagoneers are pretty cool, too. Performance wise they're both the same as every other stock ZJ out there, but they've got that cool factor a Laredo or Limited doesn't have. I even think the 93-95 SEs are pretty cool just because you don't see a lot of them. What's your reason for thinking poorly of them?
The Orvis and Woodie are absolutely just as good as well built as any other ZJ i agree with you 100% They are just ugly as all hell. Thats all i have against them both. id never personally own one.

Towed home the father-in-law's trailer for our move this weekend. The niner pulled it like a charm @ 10mpg lol. Had a little issue with the factory wire harness at first, couldn't get the running lights to light up. Turned out to be a bent prong in the coupler.

I like late Orvises because they feel more refined, to me. I just don't care for the 8-slot grille or the thick red piping on the cladding of the old-style ZJ. The interior feels a lot older in the old-style model, too, whereas the later one definitely feels dated, but is modern enough to use.

I looked at a niner today. Completely trashed. It was definitely fast, even with bald tires and the front driveshaft out, but I don't know how fast because the gauges were all broken. Dude wanted 3 large. No thanks.

Answer to #1:

To add to this, you should have a instructions/manual/ of some sort from the company, unless you brought them off of a PO, then I could understand?!
