Say hello to Ruth Bader Jeepsburg, my new-to-me 1998 Jeep Wrangler
Quick facts: It’s got the 4-cylinder so it’s very slow, a manual to keep things fun, a winch + onboard compressor to do stupid things with, and it failed emissions by 2% on CO (guess I should’ve put that new air filter in beforehand)
So at this point the stable includes the following...
Daily: 2013 Scion FR-S
Plans: Once the Jeep has plates this is going up on jack stands and getting a full exhaust (incl. headers), coilovers, some meaty-er tires, and a mild tune (Nothing crazy yet)
Winter Daily/Adventure Rig: 1998 Jeep Wrangler
Plans: New roll-bar padding (it has none), line-x the interior (has no carpet), has some trail scars that’ll rust if I don’t seal them, and some minor fixes here and there.
WTF/For the Laughs Rig: 1979 Chevy LUV
Plans: Long-term resto-mod (if I can get around to working on it). Have some Kirkey racing seats (because I hate my spine), line-x the underbody + interior + bed & patch some rust holes, gonna do a custom PI based android auto dash (w/ backup camera, dash camera, lane departure/etc integration at some point. perks of being an automotive R&D/SW engineer) and long-long term it’ll be getting a full EFI conversion & cruise control, LED headlights/taillights, etc.
So oppo, who else is getting ready to/just did dive deeper into the carcaine addiction?
