Well we (the seller and I ) tinkered with it to get it to turn over on new gas and its a sale. Towing it home, a whole 2 miles, Monday or Tuesday. Got him down on price and he is throwing in a few parts he had and obviously has no need for now.
Let the wrenching begin.

|frenchy206||If it's been sitting a long time with the same gas, the carb probably needs to be rebuilt or at least cleaned thoroughly. It wouldn't be a bad idea to drain and clean the tank. Check the oil. I should be replaced. Like I said earlier, I wouldn't feel comfortable driving too far without changing all the fluids.|

|AZDeez||OK there sits another question. I really want to start it, so what is a safe way of doing that not knowing how long it's been sitting. Thank fully in that regard it's carbureted(sp?). Although I'd rather have MPFI.|

|frenchy206||It looks rough even for the price. I'd offer lower. Lots of work needs to make it look nice and be functional. Especially if it's been sitting for a while. Figure it will need all the fluids replaced, full tune up (air filter, plugs, wires, etc). If it needs tires, bumper and fenders, etc. Your easily over 2 g's with everything mentioned.|

Buying an '88 Wrangler
Anything I should know about this older beast before I pull the wallet out.
Decent priced at 2800. I believe its been sitting for several years as an eventual project that the seller didn't get to.
Not sure of the specifics yet.
- obvious tire and wheel upgrade
- no spare carrier but it also needs a bumper so that will go hand in hand
- definitely an Arizona Jeep since I actually cant find any rust
- stripped fenders
- 3" lift - looks like maybe procomp spring lift
