89 Jeep YJ 350
My dad picked this up today from Tampa. 89 YJ 350 TH350 trans. 4" lift on 33s, 4.10 gears. Engine was dyno'ed at a little over 300 hp. Np231 T case with an SYE kit waiting to be installed as well. Engine needs some wiring, radiator needs to be installed and a few things here and there to get it on the road

Only set back of the day was when loading the jeep on the trailer it popped off and hit into the tailgate on my dad's truck. Uhaul will be covering it as they were the ones who put the trailer on to the hitch.

Awesome! Does that mean he's going to come wheel with us when he visits you?

I hope so, he usually flies to come visit but trying to convince him to tow the jeep up, probably next summer.

Sucks about the tailgate. That happens quite a bit - the guys working at UHaul don't jiggle the tongue and the tongue is never secured enough to the ball.

Jiggle it and use a big pair of pliers to get their universal thing on tight enough.

Yep that's exactly what happened. Fortunately Uhaul is accepting responsibility and covering the damage.

Have rented trailers from U Haul a few times and they WILL NOT let you tighten it. I usually end up driving around the block and tightening it myself.

A few updates on my Dad's YJ. Engine is fully wired and accessories are all on, just waiting to do the exhaust on it. Transfer case and SYE are in just need a rear driveshaft still. He built a center console for it as well, and a front winch bumper, and got the rear one from affordable offroad.Almost road ready just a few things left to finish up.

Affordable offroad rear bumper and Corvette LED tails
