I am stationed overseas and decided to buy something a little different.
So I got me a nice yellow 1988 Mitsubishi Jeep.
4 speed, 4 cylinder turbo diesel.
Has it's fair share of some rust and neglect, but that is what I am trying to fix.
It still had FACTORY 1988 shocks and steering stabilizer... Yea they are blown, so that is step one, (taking measurements and deciding which ones to go with)
Step 2 is my pretty much destroyed bikini top. When it was installed no one decided to cop the studs coming out of the roll bar (they held covers for the bar at one point) so there is 8 nice holes in it, the center strap is broken so it sags when it rains and there is a hole in the front as well.... Now I tried looking in the states but I cannot find one with a front like this
Step 3 is front and rear end fluid change, and trans case fluid change... since the trans case is leaking, and the rear end is leaking at the pumpkin and it looks like it may be leaking at the wheel seal as well. So if you have an idea of what axles these are that would make my life alot easier.
Any suggestions on axle and trans case fluid?
Next I have no heat, not really needed much here (espically since I don't actually own a top) but it is nice when you get off at 0300 and your windshield is all fogged over and you have no way to fix that. lol so does ANY stateside jeep have a heating setup like this? (apparently this is my heatercore and blower motor)
So sorry for the million questions but any helpful advice I would greatly enjoy. This is something I plan on keeping for a while, but Japanese prices are a bit extreme. Right now I am searching part numbers all over the internet because a new clutch is $600, a full top is nearly $1,600 hell for that matter i just paid $50 for an air filter, $30 for an oil filter and $25 for a fuel filter.
