Hello everyone, as of Feb 2nd 2011 i have been jeepless. Last Feb i got rid of my 06 jeep wrangler 65th anniversary edition 4.0 6 speed built to purchase an 08 Dodge Ram 2500 6.7 Cummins. The loss didnt really hit me until the previous summer. I noticed all these topless doorless jeeps all summer long and it made me realize what i let go. So almost a year to the date I recently just purchased a 1993 jeep Wrangler YJ 4.0 HO 5 speed for 1500 bucks. It has its weak places mostly frame work. Engine runs good and drives well, body is in decent condition. I have big plans for this one. 4.6 stroker kit, 4" lift, bushwacker pocket flares, DC-2 Wheels, and some other needed parts.
I would like to create an online before, during, and after as i progressively repair, rebuild, and replace. I will post pics of how i got it and what I have done to it in the week i have had it so far... Thanks to all who look.

update. girlfriend ordered me 2.5 exhaust kit from summit, tj mirrors, and engine gasket set for my 4.6 stroker kit for valentines day.. awesome...... got quite a bit of frame work done. removed the flares from both sides of jeep and started some body work. removed seats to prepare for raptor liner the tub.
still needs rear wheel seal done , brakes , brake lines , engine rebuild with stroker kit, new top,
Love the plans you got for the YJ I had to do some frame work on mine. Check out my build thread and let me know what you think. My girl got me something for my jeep for valentines day I just don't know what it is yet. We will see...
Update"::: exhaust is on had to remove the track bar to get the muffler to fit right have to put it back on ...soon.... started some body work , took care of the fender rust on both sides and front cowl rust... hood somewhat sanded and started to prime... lack of work on it this week due to job interview on tuesday then i have been working on my brothers dodge ram putting a 6" lift kit on..... looking forward to posting more pics and updates in the next few weeks....... upcoming events fixing floor in two cracked spots under seats and lineing tub with either herculiner or raptor liner havent decided yet...
Update: Lined the tub with herculiner. Picked up a 4.2 engine for 150$ sadly the guy i bought it from left it fill up with water so i got a nasty mud looking rotating assembly. Now i have to get it hot tanked and possibly undersized but it didnt look too bad may just need polished.. As for rods it has 3 pistons seized in the cylinder walls. A little hint to everyone never take a guys word bring a wrench and turn the engine over before you load it and take it home lol... well ill see how those come out today.. here are some pics of the floor
dropped the crankshaft off at the machine shop today, said it was still useable just needed polished... letting the pistons soak in a mixture of pb blaster and old tranmission fluid to try and get them to free up.. got 4 out of 6 connecting rod wrist pins freed up just have the other 2 still seized maybe tommorrow they will come out.. started priming the jeep. sandblasting the windshield tommorrow and doors ... big week coming up.. might removed engine for disassembly as well..
