History Bought in 2016, 258 I6. I've done a fair amount to it. While it doesn't have a fire breathing V8, or a rock crawling suspension set up, I love it. I'm actually trying to keep it in an "Upgraded" stock form, not as boring as a purist, but not as chopped up as a crawler or hot rod, either. Hence stock bumpers I bought, stock runnin boards and fenders, etc. With just enough change to be called custom.

I don't see very many YJ's in town, when I do, they are running steelies and just look tired, or slaughtered up because it's a "YJ", and looks like it takes Monster drinks and not gas to run. To me, they are Iconic, and less and less of them are around, so would like to keep this iconic look going forward, just one primate's opinion.

I also have full hard doors and top as well. So for a "keeper" of an original look, I have all the parts.

A cheap Boss Radio, It's ironic it's called "Boss", lol. Only $30 and has Bluetooth, so can't complain, lasted longer than an expensive Kenwood. The rear has Sony Xplods in front of the rear wheel wells in some formed plastic and Xplods in the front as well. Pretty sure they're from the Bush years, but they still work. All bought by PO, except the Baller Boss head unit.
