This is Steve, my wife's "new" '88 YJ we just bought in July '13.
He's got a 4.2L with a Weber carb and Nutter Bypass, AX-15 & 231.
Been in Maine his whole life and was obviously garaged except when driven, and NEVER driven in the winter and possibly not in the rain much.
With 120,000 on his odometer, he's seen less than 5,000 miles per year!
Even his clock keeps PERFECT time after all these years!!!

You DON'T find 25 year old Maine based Jeeps that look as new as this one!
We put the 31s on it just after we got it. The 215/75R15s just left the wheel wells looking empty, plus they were all seasons, so that's no good....
I also added a modified Durango center console because there's just no place to put stuff.
Steve is a blast to drive, fun to wheel, and a lot more capable than I thought a leaf sprung Jeep would be!
We prefer when he's topless and doorless, but with a hard top and full steel doors, a Bimini top and steel half doors we have a few options depending on the weather!

My wife's favorite color is purple, so Steve is slowly getting purple accents.
My wife has found purple seat belts and purple "Jeep" and "Wrangler" decals, the flawless steel half doors I found on Craigslist for $75 per door are Amethyst, She found an exact matching purple rattle can and I painted all of the black areas of the dash purple, and I made her a full set of purple paracord grab handles, door handles, door retainer straps.
Black and grey with purple accents looks pretty good together, IMHO

I don't have any good pics of all the purple stuff up, but I'll keep trying.
