JEEP HISTORY
It's a YJ Laredo, coffee brown, very
little rust. My father-in-law put
several hundred dollars into the Jeep
while we were on our honeymoon--he fixed
the brakes, which were essentially dead,
had the valve cover fixed, rear end
tightened up (supposedly the bolts were
only finger tight...), oil pan replaced;
it leaks almost nothing now. I had to get
the windshield replaced, and the hinges
broke while taking the old one off, so I
discovered the joy of dismantling the
entire dashboard to get at the f!#$#!!!
nuts on the inside. I put in a new radio
and speakers while I was at it. We got
a hard top and full doors for $500 off
this dude in northeast Tennessee--that was
a trip. SOB overheated four times on the
way down. We were going to try to get to
Nashville to stay with my godfather and my
aunt, but that didn't happen. However,
Uncle Joe did suggest turning the heater
on, which made the overheating manageable.
Finally got to the guy's place the next
morning. Man and his wife came out to
talk to us; very nice people. Out in the
yard is this younger fellow welding
something on the bottom of an old Isuzu
SUV, IIRC. Huge shirtless blond guy named
Biggun (that's how John introduced him...)
was also in attendance drinking his
breakfast beer. (8:45 am) John tells me
that the Jeep whose top I am getting,
"all it needed was a new engine and
it ran great." I believe he uses
this Jeep for "time traveling,"
which I daresay is an activity for which
the hardtop is decidedly optional. There
was also a dune buggy parked next to the
big tree in the front yard, which had also
been recently used for "time
travelling," which may have had
something to do with the large number of
beer cans in the yard around it. (Didn't
Dr. Brown put beer in Mr.
Fusion?) Anyway, since then I've put in
a new radiator, finally tracked down the
original problem to the ignition
module,...,...
