i test drove a 94 YJ, very nice condition and ran great. the only prob is that it has 187,000 miles and under the hood i found a homemade something or other. the hose that runs from the top of the valve cover goes straight to a plastic container. also on the top of this container were two small holes in which steam was escaping. is it blowin oil or what? should i steer clear of this jeep? btw they are askin $4,900 but im sure it can be talked down.

if it is stock i would think with that many miles you should pass it up

Sounds like the something or other is the old home made oil trap that some of the guys on here are making to trap blow by. To keep it out of the filter. Depends if you are going to up grade your Jeep after you get it. Could be a project or it could give you some good service.

being only 17 and not having a ton of money, i think after i'd get it my only option would be a budget boost, some sort of 31 inch mud tire, and possobly sway bar discos.....for the time being=) so this is normal and isnt a major mechanical problem? also would it be worth it to spend extra $ to get a lower milage jeep? theres a real nice 91 with 102k in my town. thanks
