Hey guys this is my first jeep and I bought it knowing it needed some work. After getting it home and taking a good look at it I found out it was in much worse shape than was described by its former owner, I don't know if it was intentional or not but it's mine now. I know alot about cars and trucks in general but the jeep thing is new to me. It does have some good upgrades on it however most of them dont work. It hase ARB lockers front and rear but the compressor is not operational. It has a 4.5 inch rebicon express super flex kit but the whole thing it worn out all the joints are done and the swaybar disconect bushings front and rear are non existant bothe trackbars are shot and Ive already had a welder out to weld some cracked tabs on the axles. I know I has in for a challenge but this is gonna be war. It does run and drive shifts well has terrible DW's at 40 miles an hour though Im assuming thats doe to all the loose components in the suspension when I got it the front drive shaft was out of it because the cv joint was broken. I am having a really hard time finding a front driveshaft too. The engine runs good but needs to has some leaks fixed but all in all the clutch tranny and engine seem to work well together. I know im in it for the long haul here so any advise would be appreciated. Thanks guys Brett
