-Brief history of your jeep and how it came to be
This is my third YJ. My 91 YJ rolled down my mechanic's parking lot into a semi, my 95 succumbed to New England rust and a shop that closed on me while the jeep was in pieces.

Found this jeep on Craigslist. It spent time in Florida and the southwest. Finally made its way to Massachusetts where it was kept stock and in a heated garage every winter. The frame was in showroom condition. I handed the man selling it a check on the spot.

New England is a fun place where rust is like the Terminator. "It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead." It didn't take too long after I bought it for spots of surface rust to start appearing. To combat the effects of moisture and the road salt used around here I Herculined the tub, POR 15'd the exterior of the frame and coated the frame interior with Eastman's Anti-Rust.

The factory springs on her were old and tired and the tires were close to rubbing the flares. It was definitely time for a lift. I had to limit the height so I could fit the jeep in my garage. I also do a lot of highway miles so I decided to installed a BDS 2 inch lift with 5/8 MORE shackles and run 31s. I was running stock flares until the shops around me told me I had to get bigger ones to pass inspection so I went with the Xenons.

Found a used Kargo Master Congo Cage and Safari Rack for my kayak and camping gear. It'll make a good mount for an LED bar when the time comes. I kept the side steps but will be installing something more substantial when I get time.

I've been happy with the mild build, she's good on the road and decent on the trail. I can get to the climbing areas and river put ins I need to. On the highway she'll let me know that I should be thinking about regearing but that's a lot of money away...

On the inside I have played around with the stereo a bit - see my posts about that. I got the audiophile bug from my father and I'm trying to get the jeep system closer to the sound of my main system at home. I've made progress but there's still a lot to experiment with.

Here's one I took the day I bought the jeep.

As she sits:

Barnes 2" belly, Solid dif covers, CCFAB
tube fenders, rear tire carrier, CB radio, Corbeau Moab seats, Grant steering wheel, Tuffy center locking console
Had two nicely built rigs a while back, sold them then kicked myself. Bought this Jeep almost 5 years ago, it had a 2" lift, 33's, 1" body lift, winch, bumper and tire carrier. Stock everything else with 114K miles on it. Been running great and because it's not my daily it still has low miles. Got the bug again obviously so I built it up to what it is today. A little heartache and money but I got it to where I want it with a D44 front and 37's. Only thing else I see putting on it is a trail cage and maybe a stretch down the line, we'll see.

Stop whining about the 'ride' - If your YJ ain't wrangling your soul free, then might I suggest you buy a stationwagon... at least you can fit all your bull**** in the back.

with the holidays around the corner and considering this death match is simply additional contest, i'm gonna spend these bumps like it's a summer holiday (gotta conserve the Canadian snow bunnies for the December edition YJOTM).

If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.
