Description for Jeep Wrangler 1991

It's a sad day. It's time to sell my Jeep. What you've got here is (in standard Jeep fashion) a 1983-1994 Jeep CJ7 Wrangler. This was my project for a couple years. and I drove it for a couple years. but the time has come to move on. I did a frame-off restoration of the Jeep. I started with a very solid '83 CJ7 frame and axles. had everything sand blasted. painted the frame and axles with Chassis Saver for protection. I swapped the rear for an '86 Dana 44. which also got blasting and Chassis Saver. The axles got 3. 73 gears. new seals. new bearings. new brakes. and new braided flexible brake lines. The rear also got a torsen-style limited slip differential that works very well. All the U-joints were replaced. The front axle got new stainless rotor backing plates. The tires are low mileage 31's on 15" American Racing rims that are just a couple years old. The springs and bushings are new. The Dana 300 transfer case was rebuilt with new bearings and seals. The AX-15 5 speed manual was also rebuilt with new seals. bearings. and syncros. It uses a '94 external slave and of course. a new clutch. The engine is a 4. 7 liter I-6 stroker that started as a standard 4. 0 out the '91 Renegade that I bought for the engine and interrior. I had the block bored . 030" over and swapped in the crank and rods from a 258. The cam is a near-stock RV style cam. The injectors are 24# units to handle the extra fuel needs. I used a header for the exhaust and a 2000+ curved intake manifold for better flow. The head and intake were gasket-matched to improve flow as well. (Over $2000 in the engine alone. ) The stock '91 computer and harness handle the control side. An all-aluminum radiator does the cooling. The body is a very good quality fiberglass tub from a CJ. with the matching front fenders and hood. I'm not sure the brand of the tub. but it's very stout- I've seen some that are flimsy. This isn't one of those. The grill and windshield are both steel. I used a solid grill and windshield frame. but had a body guy remove any traces of surface rust and shoot them both in automotive gloss black. The interrior was donated from the same '91 Renegade because the seats were the upgraded ones and were in pretty good shape. The dash was painted black and the dash pad was painted yellow. There's an aftermarket AM/FM/CD radio that talks to the sound bar. The rollbar is a family-style unit from a '94 YJ. I put in new aftermarket black carpeting to keep in some heat and cut down on the noise. Under the body is a 20 gallon CJ poly tank. I used an external fuel pump to work with the factory fuel injection system. There's a 2" receiver out back and a custom front bumper with mounts for D-rings. The soft top is a Best Top YJ unit. The Jeep is very nice. but it's not perfect. The biggest thing wrong is that the fuel gauge doesn't work quite right- it's a CJ sending unit hooked to a YJ dash. The gauge reads empty when the tank is full. then drifts toward 1/2 a tank when the tank is empty. I just fill up every 200 miles and don't worry about it. (The Jeep gets about 18MPG. so I'm re-filling at about half a tank. ) The body I bought used because it was in very good shape. There are some cracks in the gel coat. and one fender has a crack where it meets the hood- see pics. I've driven the Jeep for the last 2 years. and some was in the winter. so there is some surface rust on some parts - thanks brine! A leaf or two snuck into the heater blower. so the fan makes a little noise until the leaf gets chewed up. The blower motor was replaced. along with the heater core during the rebuild. Since the finish of the project. I've put about 3. 00 miles on everything. I've tried to be as descriptive and detailed as possible. Please check the pics. I put the Jeep on the lift to get decent shots of the underside. I hate to see the Jeep go. but I've got other things on my schedule. so it's time for Old Yeller to move on. There is nothing significant wrong- the engine is super strong. the trans shifts beautifully. etc. The gas gauge is the worst thing I can think of. Aside from the typical CJ ride. I wouldn't have any concern about hopping in and driving it to California. There are no leaks. I live in an E-check county. and the Jeep passed the tailpipe test with flying colors- it should. everything is new. I have not taken the Jeep off-road. It could certainly go. but I thought it was too new to do that. The Jeep is titled as a 91 Renegade. but it doesn't look like a Renegade. I will swap out the Optima battery for another one- the Jeep will not come with the Optima battery. I'm located just south of Cleveland. Ohio. Naturally local pickup is preferred. If the buyer arranges for transport of some kind. I'll do what I can to make that work.
