Bought it new in 1994, and after 19 years I've replaced every damn thing on it. Just replaced the 19 year old headlight switch last week. I've gotten some parts from newer Jeeps. Review mirror is from a Cadillac and has Temp and compass. Fuel injectors are from a Lincoln Navigator. Rear end is from a 1978 Mercury Couger. On board Air compressor is an A/C compressor from a Volvo.
Wow, that is beautiful!! I've got a TJ & a JK, maybe it's time to add a YJ to my list (After some more guns of course)

Thanks.

As much money as I've put into it since 1994, my boat exceeded it really quick. If I don't take my boat out more than 3 times this year it's getting sold next year! LOL

Gotta say GunHo, I'm a bit envious of your YJ too. Most Jeep purists have written off the Square Eyes.
p.s. I have a motorcycle that is about to suffer the same fate as your boat. And, for the same reason.

I've had Jeeps most of my life. In the '70s, my brother and I started with a '68 Jeepster Commando. That old Jeep caught Hades I tell ya. She climbed mountains, to the point that we had to do three hour switchbacks using a couple of come-alongs, rope and strong trees. No real off-road gear available in those days.

Since then, I've had CJs, a 5 and a '48 Willys with a top speed of 51 mph but, would climb a tree! Uglies (remember them?) were the tires to have in those days, and the '48 did. There has been a Wagoneer and two Cherokees. I currently own a '93, mostly bone stock, Square Eye.

Nice Jeeps everyone! This thread relives memories, thanks.

eta: some seem to like the coils. I'm a Jeep, old school, leaf man. Just can't get used to those girlie coil suspensions! j/k, no flames please.

BTDT-Sold my boat 10 yrs ago after only using it twice one summer. Now when we feel like a boat trip we just rent one for a few days. Better places to put all that cash!!

I just bought my first Jeep. A 2007 Wrangler X.
So far, I'm loving the Jeep life.
Now, I just need to get one of these to keep my G23, when I'm at work.

I just hope I don't spend all my spare ammo money on mods.

Do not let him get a yj. When it comes to jeep wranglers always go with round headlights.

And the diagnosis.....
Car Forum
Car Forum

Apparently over 200k miles of religious Mobil 1 Synthetic oil changes didn't do the trick. Funny thing is that the inside of the TJ's engine looked clean as a whistle. Wipe parts off with a rag and they looked new. The ZJ donor's engine was baked on black on the inside. We resealed it completely and I've put 8k on it since the swap.... still doesn't leak a drop... which is odd for a Jeep.

Still want to rebuild the original block. That's a rainy day project.
