Well I just traded my 1990 Daihatsu Rocky for a 1988 YJ with the 4.2L and TF999. Body is in good shape, Frame is in good shape, only issues seen so far are the brakes are in need of bleeding and the headlights flicker off, but cut on if you turn the switch off and on again. Lots of ideas floating around in my head but ultimately want a fun weekend warrior that is still a good DD. Been following builds on here for a while and thought I'd finally start my own! Look forward to hearing from everyone!
(EDIT) So, after almost two weeks, have and update. Went through everything and the YJ originally was a manual, but somebody switched out the trans at some point and just cut the pedal with a sawzall. After replacing, rotors, pads, springs in rear drums, pass. caliper, driver ball joints and rear wheel cylinders. Managed to chase out the headlight flicker and get it all running and stopping like it should. Downgraded from the 33's on it to the 31's I had laying around. Also noticed it has a 3 inch body lift on it. Hopefully that will go soon after I replace the springs with stock or 1". Ultimate plan right now is to run somewhere between 33s and 35s on SOA with either an 8.8 or Ford 9 and 44. But all that depends on everything else and how it all comes together and what money looks like, considering this will be a DD. Also got the chance to go into the diffs and looks like the rear gears were replaced recently which is kinda nice.
