Bought my 3rd Jeep.

Drove this home last Sunday. Cost me 350. Even with missing chunks of exhaust gaskets and a trashed motorcraft 2bbl, she still crawled her way home. But 3 tanks of gas to go 119 miles! Worked out to be about 2.6mpg OUCH! 35mph on the freeway , slower uphills She's not in bad shape, bodys got rot (one of the rear door hing mounts is gone), frames OK, interior needs work (trashed headliner, glued shut sunroof), but basically its all still there. She doesn't have the 4lo, but i can live with it. I got me an FSJ!











First to go is the carb. Either rebuild or replace. Then the headers.

Shedloads of work before it sees regular use, on or off-road. Carb rebuild/replace so i can get more than the 2.6mpg i got driving it home. Header swap. Then some body work.

There is a guy who emailed me after i won this on ebay to tell me he has a parts FSJ (in the UK) that he is wanting to get rid of. It has an SOA! Unfortunately i would be in deep s**t if i bought a 4th Jeep home...

IFSJA. I've been hanging around on there for the last month or so, wringing my hands until i brought mine home. Now i'm asking all the noob questions. "Whats this do?" "Whats that for?" "How do i...?"


BTW, if i had a $ for every time i heard "Steering wheel is on the wrong side", i would have paid off the damn Jeep!

without seeing the steering wheel on the right side, I noticed the sidewalk/
road pics with the homes in the background, and thought it looked like Europe.

the roads in Ireland look exactly the same.... houses too....

I'd bet getting parts over there would be killer $$$$....................
