So...I got a Jeep...Build thread

I know I know a lot of guys on here don't like jeeps but I have always

wanted one as a weekend toy to play around with. Plus I have a

PreRunner so it will be fun to have a 4x4 that isn't my daily driver.

Anyway my father and I bought the jeep this past weekend. It is a 1995

Jeep YJ Wrangler with only 61000 miles. Got it from an old man who just

used it to get around his ranch. Good in line 4 motor but the outside

needs a little love. It is also completely stock other than the wheels and

tires so it will be fun to start building it up. Hope yall enjoy the build.

And on to the pics.

If I could have any offroad vehicle besides my truck it would be a 90's jeep for sure. Love them.

UPDATE!!!

Just some small things. This weekend we got some new wheels and tires for the jeep. We went with Unique 15x8 black wheels wrapped in 31x10.5x15 Falken A/T. Waiting on the new center caps to come in so just put the old ones back on for now. Also put a new belt on it and drove it around pretty much all weekend. Will be changing all the fluids this week and just ordered new front seats last night

Sorry kinda crappy pics

This thing is in remarkably good condition. Nice find!

Jeep aftermarket is bigger than Tacoma's. Hope your wallet is ready.
