The Jeep Experience Newsletter, Issue #032
September 03, 2010
Hi ,

Here at the Jeep Lovers Headquarters things are really heating up. Your humble host has finally pulled the trigger on a project Wrangler.

After a lot of searching and patience (which wasn't easy...especially the patience bit) I found the Jeep Wrangler that had almost everything I wanted on it. Best of all, it was a bargain.

I was able to negotiate $2000 off of the sellers asking price. My Wrangler is a 1995 YJ with a black hardtop (never been removed), 6-cylinder/4.0L engine (rebuilt 40,000 miles ago), functional air-conditioning, nice stereo, new 30x75x9.50 AT tires, hide-a-trunk...and it's red.

This is What My YJ Looked Like When I First Got it Home

It needs a lot of minor tweaking and will be getting my personal touches as times goes by. It had some minor damage to the front grill and fender I got the angle grinder out and promptly cut off the mangled lips (that sounds painful).

Anyway, I will be keeping you informed of the progress on my new (old) YJ. I don't intend to spend much money on this Jeep, so I will be doing as much work as possible myself.

Jeep Tips of the Month

It's not too soon to start getting your rig ready for Winter. Many of you live in very cold Winter climates, so this may be most critical for you when the snow starts piling up and the temps start to fall.

  • Check and replace belts and hoses. No one wants to be stranded in temperatures well below freezing while the belt is shredded like chow mein, or a hose is leaking coolant/anti-freeze on the snow giving it that snow cone yellow or green tint.
  • Speaking of anti-freeze, make sure your radiator and water pump are happy with a clean fresh 50% antifreeze and 50% water mixture. Also, a good idea to flush the entire system before adding the new blend.
  • Try to get your scheduled oil change and chassis lubrication done before the mercury starts to plunge.
  • Don't forget your tires. Change them out now if they are worn significantly. If you have snow tires make sure they are properly aired up and ready to go. Same holds true for all five tires (remember the spare).
  • Patch up holes, tears, zippers or worn places on your soft top if you have one. Replace now if necessary.
  • Store your survival gear now lest you forget to do it later and find yourself singing harmony with the local coyotes while trying to keep from freezing to death miles from home.
  • Fix anything needed on your Jeep now while you can still feel your fingers. Man it stings when your frigid hand slips off the wrench and slams into cold steel. Ouch!

So until next time remember...the letters J-E-E-P stand for...Just Eliminate Every Politician! Okay, I just made that up...but maybe not a bad
