I just bought a WJ last weekend for $300 bucks. Needs a new transmission, but the PO sold it to me with a replacement trans and tcase. So I just need some sweat equity and Iāll be there.
Iāve never owned a WJ beforeāsome XJs and a Renegadeābut never a WJ. PO just bought a truck instead and didnāt want a project car.
PO bought it with a 3ā lift, 31.6ā tires, roof rack and a ton of tint work. Has the 4.0 with the 42RE. I believe it has the 242 tcase.
So I guess my question is thisā¦
Iām thinking of being lazy and just not adding any further modifications, but I havenāt been off road with it yet. I am not into heavy duty crawling, but I like going places that I wouldnāt have been able to go without a 4x4. Pretty much anything doable with a 4wheeler (within reason) is what I want to be able to do. Can I leave āer be? My original plan was to build up my ā92 Isuzu Rodeo, but I couldnāt say no to such a cheap rig, with more aftermarket support than a Rodeo. It already has bigger tires and lift, and I wouldnāt feel bad if I rolled it or blew it up.
But, I figured it wouldnāt hurt to check with the hive mind of the internet before I did so.
