So maybe I’m reliving my younger years, but I not only bought the Red Jeep that I have previously mentioned, but now I’ve bought a second Black Jeep. They are both Wrangler YJ’s, not the CJ-3 and CJ-5 of my younger years, but they still look like Jeeps, and drive like Jeeps. (more that can be said of some of the newer models) The Red is a 1995 and the Black is a 1992.
The Red is an Automatic trans, and the Black is a 5 speed stick, with a 4 inch lift kit.
Both have the 2.5 litre 4 cylinder engine, which is a little peppier than the L-4 in my old CJ-3, but nothing comparable to the V-8 in my CJ-5. “Black” is a standout in Michigan, because it has almost ZERO body and frame rust. I was getting comfortable with “RED”, until I ran into “Black” up at “NortherThan”. It was black like my old CJ-5, it had a stick shift, and a 4 in. lift kit. I couldn’t resist.
Now I own two Jeeps. I’ve pretty much got both of them fixed up and ready to go, Both have under 80,000 miles, new radiators, brakes, and both have good tires, though “Black” is going to get a bigger set soon. OH, and “RED” has a nearly new soft top. I suppose when I get around to it, I’ll have to sell “Red”. It would make someone a good around town jeep, and/or a good trail riding machine. If you’re interested, keep an eye out here. http://nmi.craigslist.org/cto/4661565773.html
I have a bunch of parts to put on “Black” when we get back to NortherThan. It needs some fine tuning on the rear hatch, a new clutch master cylinder cap, bigger tires, a new 12v power plug, and a good trail tool kit, but, we should be on the trails a few days after we get back. Oh yeah, and I also have to take that silly aftermarket air conditioner off of it. (what a joke).
