Internet Gamble on '95 YJ Sahara

Looks Great right????

Looks Great right????

Let me start by saying I was a CJ owner in the late 1980's. My '79 was customized on a very low budget without the internet.

After my daughter was born I quickly realized a lifted Jeep CJ was not very easy to load in a child strapped into a car seat. A patch of black ice later put me sideways, and dry pavement put me over on to the drivers door. Wheeeee!!!

Fast forward to 2012 and the bug rebit me. I made the "mistake" of bidding and buying without inspecting a 1995 Wrangler Sahara. Now the fun begins...4 inch Rough Country suspension lift, cold air intake, American Racing Outlaw 2 wheels, Smitty-Bilt 6in. flares, diamond plate rockers...and, that's just to start...

Larry's Comment: Scotty...All I can say is that the internet has made "fixing up" a Jeep a lot easier (although not necessarily less expensive) than it was in the "old" days.

Have fun with your new purchase. Your Wrangler YJ Sahara looks like a good start and in pretty good shape in the photo.

Worse in person!

Thanks Larry, I will. It was an "as-is" sale and looked way better on the web than in person. I grabbed a body mount and it came off in my hand. Tub is ok but all exposed parts need TLC. I will update with more pics.

Larry's Reply: Don't feel too bad, Scotty. When I bought my '95 YJ I had taken it for a thorough test drive and looked it over top to bottom.

Later I found that the transfer case had a 3 inch chunk blown out of the top of the case (no fluid left in the case). I had to replace the whole thing with a new one ($$$).

I guess it's CAN put lipstick on a pig. The good news is that now that I have done the necessary repairs and upgrades, I wouldn't trade my YJ for anything...unless the price was right...ha!
