I was 18 when i bought lil old rusty red Caroline after flipping my XJ that winter.. i needed something fast sense i did not have a daily driver but something that could still go threw Iowa snow! so i hoped on Craigslist and searched the wranglers in my area. i found this Yj in WI about 3 hours from my house. so i jumped in the truck and headed up. When i get there i saw a tired looking Yj with the tranny hanging under neither.. rusted out wheels.. 2 front bald tires.. and no working doors. one good thing.. It was a hard top! It was also a 4.0 auto.. i would perfer stick but i needed it. so i bought it for 1,200$.. It had 138k miles on her..
I was a little nervous to drive it all the way home.. but figured it would b my time to see what all was wrong with this abused little Yj. the 4X4 worked well.. i had to plow 6 inches of snow all the way home on the interstate.
Heres some pics of when i first got her home and in My dads shed.
