College student on budget with a new (to me) 87 XJ

Hello, my name is Patrick and I recently picked up a 4dr 87 XJ 4wd with an i6 for $600. I have a car but wanted to start a Jeep project so I can wheel with, not just ride along, when my friends go wheeling.

The Good
4wd and only 163k miles on it (as read on the odometer)
Only $600
Interior is still in pretty good condition
28 Goodyear A/T tires
The Bad
Cracked muffler
Leaky injector
No inspection
No title

I knew going into this project that it would take some money to get it running right again, much less rock crawling capable, but for $600 I had to jump on it.

Not really new, just been gone a while

Iím not really a new here, but it's been a while and I just wanted to say HI an let you folks know a little about me.
Iím new to Jeeps. I had an old Trooper II for several years that led a very abused life. Iíve been without a 4x4 for almost two years and recently picked up a 93 ZJ (5.2 30/35) in a trade. Itís had a rough life too. I hear that the wiring harness was cut up by a husband whose wife was cheating on him, but who knows. Itís been pieced back together, but right now itís an ill running, fluid leaking mess. Iíve done a little work on it, but it needs more before I put it on the road. Iíll try and post some photos now.

New here, here's my 94' XJ.

99' HO/AW4 combo on 3" rough country lift with 31's. Now wishing I had gone higher, so planning on going another 3" with long arms and up to 35's.

Nothing hardcore now, but I'm working on it.

New to the Site

This place was recommended to me by a Hardcore Wheeler,
as a place that has ZJ info on it.
Like I really need any... I never bolt anything onto my ZJ (or anything else I work on for that mater) that belongs on it, or was ever intended to be on it!
Hence the Nickname: Monkey Wrench
Although I will say that in the few days I've been here, I am very impressed with all the insane stuff you crazy guys do!



Built out of Junk Yard Parts.... And Proud of it!


'93 ZJ ~4.0 -Custom 5" Lift -33" Rut Runners -Work in Progress

My name is Justin D. Fender and I live in North Carolina. I owned a Samurai for the past 10 years, and followed the Zuki owners around online through different forums since around 1996 (mostly going by "muskrat"). Sold the Samurai, paid property taxes, put some money away, and bought a cheap '93 ZJ. Works better for the family.

2" budget lift, eccos, and my 31" BFGs. Getting use to the Jeep thing, replacing parts and fixing leaks. 169K miles.
