Ill start by introducing myself as another newb. My name is Ashland, 20 years old, and currently live in the soon to be cold state of Michigan. I recently came in to some money so I decided to by another jeep. Before I just had a 95' jeep grand cherokee. I bought a 93' jeep YJ, 4 banger with 31x10.5x15 tires(I think the tires won me over), that needs quite a bit of work.

I bought the YJ for 2000$ (way to much). The guy I bought it from said it just needed a clutch, which I now know was not the case at all. Not only did it need a ton more but the clutch was fine. So far I have replaced the clutch (it was a little worn out), slave cylander, some kind of pressure piston that cost 200$, a motor mount, some thing that connects the motor mount to the frame, a new trasmission support/skid plate(also cost alot) and a new valve cover.

Right now ive put about 1000$ into it and havent even been able to drive it but if I have any luck ill be able to drive it home tomarrow, were the more cosmetic work will begin. I will have pictures of it up asap.

So, everything worked out pretty good yesterday. Got a call at 11am saying that the jeep was done. I took my newish baby home (drives like a dream and shifts great) and started a little work. Fixed wind sheild wipers, the internal wiper arm disconected from the motor. Found out when I got it home that the hard top was only held on by two loose bolts so I got that all fasened down. Then remounted the seat belts because there original mounting spot were rusted out. I must say ive grown attached to the money eater already.

For the past few days Ive been working on the heep. Mounted the hard top, relocated the seat belt mounts, fixed windshield wippers, chager fuel filter, made relocation mounts for mirrors, changed all four shocks(had to cut the 18year old ones out with a tourch, replaced the front driver side brake hose and line, replaced both front brake pads, calipers, and rotors. It was a long couple of days but I eventually got everything done. I probabley could have got it all done in a day if everything wasnt so fricken rusted!!
