Anyone recognize this YJ? (Atlanta, GA area)

Hi everyone, I just recently bought this '95 YJ from an auction in Atlanta, GA. I am hoping someone recognizes this Jeep, and I may somehow reach the previous owner. I'm mostly interested in the size and brand springs that were used for the lift. If anyone can help here's a picture of it, and I have posted a bunch more on CarDomain.



Here's the link to the CarDomain pictures:

Thanks in advance for your help!

Now wait. Your from detroit and your trying to return a car to its original owner? Haha. Car theft capital of the world and your th eone who wants to return it...

But measure from the ground to a specific point on the body, usually the front fender but yours are pretty beat up so measure to the tub and then compare your measurement to the standard measurements of a stock yj, remember to account for tire size as well.

Can't say that I've seen that rolling around. I wonder why the front tow hook is on backwards?

It does from the photo look like the frame is bent, if you stare at the shackles. He's right.

Axles and bolts and springs....Oh My!

Sorry, I cant say I have seen that one around Atlanta.

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life wrote a blank check Made payable to "The United States of America " for an amount of "up to and including my life."


In the 80's we had Ronald Reagan, Bob Hope , and Johnny Cash.
Now we have Obama, No Hope and No Cash

It looks like any one of a gazillion green YJ`s with a spice top.

Why can`t you run the VIN and get a history ? It`s not hard to do.

I`d be more worried about the wasted frame then the amount of lift.

If you want to sell it then PM me. I am just up 94 a bit.

Check for cracks on the Xfer case. Bet it's dry and took a shot from the front yoke.

Axles and bolts and springs....Oh My!

The spring looks bent, not the frame (not saying there is no frame damage). Looks like the hit was just at the side of the frame and the fender and tire (and in turn the axle and spring) took the hit. Looks like a typical 4" lift. I'd guess Ruff Country or another cheap brand since the springs don't look long enough (bad shackle angle on the springs that don't look bent).

As was stated above, the t-case probably took a shot if the driveshaft didn't buckle.
