With my old purple zj. I bough it not running. The guy i bough it from said he tryed everything he could to get it running and though it had to be electrical. Well his 17yr old son was the one driving it the day it stop running. His story was he pulled into the gas station and it just wouldnt start back up.

Me and my dad got it home. Upon farther inspection there were water lines up to the door speakers behind the door skins. After pulling the heads off we found each cyliner filled with about 4-5" of pure water.

When I bought my wj,

I found water half way up the spare tire well (PO had someone break in and couldn't figure out why it was so musty inside, but had a brand new spare in there!)

$6 worth of change through out the jeep
Airsoft BB pellets
KY jelly and rubbers
A leather driver seat and regular cloth seats all around


Craziest I seen so far, On my buddies xj, we found that his transfer case was supported by a ratchet strap!! Needless to say he got rid of it quickly after that

well there is the ghetto bolt on pad lock type thing he used to secure the hatch from the inside and the bungee to hold the driver door

didnt work as every time i took a down hill right the door would swing open , usually at oncoming traffic

and the chettos and skittles and fry's couldve supported a mouse family for months i think

but the drywall stuff was the worst of it ( think 3mm thick layers of off white goo everywhere you would touch while driving ) :barf:

took 3 hrs of cleaning with some harsh chemicals to get rid of it

i did get a find a 3/8 extension though

In regards to the ZJ being a love machine, I just watched a Penzoil commercial that said it protects your baby maker, then shows a SUV sitting out in a field at night... so all those POs must have been Penzoil users

Found these when I replaced the side marker bulb in the tail light. Guess the PO was up to some things he didn't want his wife to find out about.
