I mostly lurk on the forums but i thought maybe i should participate a bit more and would start a build thread of my current jeep.
Last spring i went in search of a jeep that was a decent base to build on and wasn't going to break the bank. In Utah here a lot of the older jeeps have a bunch of rust. i looked at quite a few that were in pretty bad shape.
After a month or two of searching i ran across this 1995 YJ in pretty decent shape. a little bit of rust here and their but overall in decent shape and pretty low miles for the year. Turned out owner had just moved the jeep here from Arizona. the bad was its a 4cly auto and not the 4.0 manual i was hoping for.
picture after i got done test driving it.
first order of business was the exhaust manifold was leaking. I figured the manifold was cracked similar to some of the previous jeeps I've owned. As I tore into it i found out it was just a couple of missing bolts.
I also found several vacuum leaks at the same time due to brittle vacuum hoses and fittings. Repaired a bunch of that stuff.
the seats were pretty rough so installed a set of Corbeau Baja ultras suspension sears in, along with the risers.
These seats were super comfy and hugged you in real tight. I really liked how they felt. unfortunately they are pretty big and the side bolsters are pretty tall. Im a pretty big guy and I had a super hard time getting in and of of the jeep. So i bought another set of seats, Corbeau Baja JP's.
These fit in the jeep better and are still pretty comfy, Way better then the worn out seats that were in the jeep.
ill post more soon, need to locate some more pictures.
