I just bought a YJ last night for $4,500. Clean title, 200,000 mile on a 4.0 i6, ax15 trans, with a hard top and original paint/ carpets. The best thing is that it has been in California most of its life and has NO RUST at all!
Plans are to do a OME 2.5 lift on it (the whole kit including the greasable shackles and t case drop) and pair that with some 31 bfg tires. Ford 8.8 in the rea (4:10) and get a D30 for the front from a 4cyl yj (4:10). I will be building up the front D30 with cro mo axles. Other than that I just want a sweet DD that can handle some light trails and go camping with.
Only issues with the jeep is the T case is leaking so i will need to take it out and reseal the whole thing.
Here are some pictures, please help me identify some of the weather seals I am pointing at. The windows, the seal under the windshield, and the hardtop glass weather stripping need replacement ( can you provide me with leaks to quality parts for these please?)
