I got this baby about a month ago but haven't had a chance to register it here yet. In this case, this yj was bought not built. I hate that but it was too good of a deal to pass up. First off, yes...the jeep is running 37's with a 4cyl engine. I'm not a fan of that setup, but i do plan to drop something bigger in it if i decide to keep it. It actually gets up and goes pretty well and I haven't had trouble with it offroad even in 2wd. It only has 95000 on the body, and the engine was rebuilt at 90000, so it only has 5k. I got the jeep, an extra rear bumper, tube style sidesteps, half/soft doors, and a buttload of extra hardware with it for only $4000. In my opinion that's a steal. The only thing that really needs fixing on it is the steering. I think it needs a longer pitman arm but I'm not certain. Just has loose steering. That's about it, so far I'm enjoying being part of the square headlight family!

Check your steering box for movement. There are aftermarket braces available that help tighten things up. Could also check tie-rod ends for wear.
