Just wanted to say hello and let everyone know I finally became an American (I own a Wrangler now!) This is what an ex F-16 pilot I worked with once told me...you're not American until you own a Jeep.
Little about me, I'm a huge automobile enthusiast. However, I have mainly owned and raced cars in the past. My 1992 Wrangler is the first 4x4 capable vehicle I have ever owned. It somehow makes me feel like more of a man just driving it... If I had to side with one manufacturer, I would have to say I started life as a Mopar kid. The Dukes of Hazzard led to my first car being a '69 Charger and then a '68 Dart.
Fast Forward a decade or so and I'm now in possession of a 1992 Wrangler. This YJ is equipped with a 4.0 that only has 37K on the clock. My girlfriends mom finally let me purchase it from her. The thing has been sitting in their garage for years driven only in the summer months. When I brought it home, I spent the weekend changing all the fluids (transfer case, motor, tranny, diffs, etc.). Also, I changed the rotor, plugs, plug wires, radiator hoses, and serpentine belt. Thing drives great!
I lost the clutch last week, which led me to looking over the hydraulic system. The master was low, so I filled it to the top. I then bled the clutch system and everything is back to normal (firm peddle).
Given the low miles I don't want to butcher the vehicle too much, but I do have some tasteful mods planned for this beast. Thanks for reading and stay tuned!
to the forum and congrats on your new Jeep. Now you can throw away your green card.
Wow, a ’92 with only 37k is one heck of a deal. It must still look pretty new I would imagine. Have any pics of it for us?
I'll definitely be posting up some pictures. It's a California vehicle, so the body is perfect. However, since it was sitting in the garage with the soft top down, it was in need of a thorough cleaning.
I'll get some pictures of it and get them posted within the week.

"Its a Jeeps World, other 4x4s just get stuck in it."
My first Jeep was a '92 Wrangler, bought new from the dealer. Keep an eye on the Clutch Slave Cylinder. I had one go out, had it replaced and was good until the Whole tranny went at 130K. They found a used one for me and THAT slave cylinder went out. For whatever reason, they are vunerable, but ince they are changed out, you are golden.
