I picked up a new to me YJ on Saturday. It's mostly stock but we have big plans for it!







Even the wife was having a blast driving it around the neighborhood with the windshield down.

That is a mighty fine looking Y/TJ you've got there. I test drove one that color back in the late 80's. It was just slightly more stock than that one.

Stock........ Where do I pick up other "Stock" vehicles of this caliber. Hell, I wish my JK came with "stock" factory options like the ones you have been blessed with.

Great find.

Thanks guys!

David, I really appreciate you swinging by the CJ8 the other day. It was just too high a price for what he had. This YJ came from another forum member on Texas Jeep Owners/Pirate/Texas4x4.org. He's a really good guy and has years of building experience. It was just too good of a deal to pass up.

A few friends have asked if I'm going to switch to the CJ front end. I kind of dig the YJ "different" aspect. If anything, I'll do something weird like a Willys P/U front end. I need to do some measuring hack weldor yeah and see what happens.

That is sweet! I read the description and immediately started stuttering about "stock" Laughing

One of these days I'll finally raise both the money and the time to finish my build, and I'll be no doubt in the hole compared to whatever you stole that for...
