Re: 92 Wrangler - Decent Buy?

Honestly, I hate the TJs [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] I don't like the hood latches, any of the hinges, and I hate how the hood slopes down. It's a looks thing, nothing more, nothing less. I love the square headlights, please don't hate me [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: 92 Wrangler - Decent Buy?

Why don't I wait and find one with a bunch of stuff... well, if it has a bunch of stuff, likely it's been off-road (a lot). I would like to start clean with a straight body and straight frame. I also have looked at a ton of Jeeps that had been modified, and after seeing the stuff some of these guys pull (the majority, actually), I have huge problems trusting their modifications. I'd rather start stock and do the build up myself - the way I like it. Granted, you can't hose up putting on a winch that bad, but when you go for lift kits, lockers, etc., I just don't trust them! Even the local 4x4 shop around here sucks [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: 92 Wrangler - Decent Buy?

hate TJ's huh,(shaking my head) take this from a CJ owner and not because of the round head lights. Get a TJ! the ride is WELL worth the difference, TRUST ME. I've seen almost stock TJ's spank slightly build YJ and CJ's just because of the suspension working [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]! Plus the TJ's have Dana 44 rears now too! Hold out, and there is nothing really special about a 92 model either anything from 91 up is good with the 95's being the best year for the YJ.

I don't recall ever saying I hated any Jeep. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

I don't like the interior of either the CJs or the TJs.
The CJs speedo is too low and too far right and the gauges are too small and hard to read for my tastes.
I don't like those big scared to death looking head lights on the CJs.
The TJs dash looks too car like for my tastes.
I don't like where they put the front turn signals on the TJs.
I do however hate coil sprung suspension, too bouncy for my tastes.
I'd rather take the jar like a man than drive something that feels like it's floating on air. But that's just me. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: 92 Wrangler - Decent Buy?

I am looking at a 92 YJ.
4.0l 6 Cyl, 5 speed 96k hard top.
There is major rust in the left rocker panel (almost threw)
and it looks like the other side was already fixed.
Rust on the wind shield frame. Interior is ok.
Tires will need to be replaced. Wheels in fair cond

I drove it, engine sounds fine, with good power.
4wd work fine at first, but was unable to get it out 4wd.
It started making low rumbling noises.
They were asking $4,000/obo. He had dropped the price $600
for the rusted wind shield frame and after I poked around
at the rust rocker was willing to drop it more. That was
before I drove it.

Now the transfer case problem, is just something simple or
is it a major problem? Is there a trick to it.

The rust problem to have the rust cut out and patched
what are we talking in $$$.

One other problem is the color, it's this ugly
light -blue gren. Primer gray will be better.

How much is this worth, It has 4.0L and 5 speed I want.
It's a little more of a poject thay I wanted, but if
the price is right. So please give me some feed back.

Re: 92 Wrangler - Decent Buy?

Well thanks all for the help. I let it pass... did some more research and there seems to be more than I thought out here (although most aren't in as good condition). I'm going to pay the IRS off first then get a Jeep :P
