    I'll run through the story once more really quick, cliff notes version. My best friend from highschool and his dad bought this jeep when he was 16 (10 years ago). Him and is dad built said jeep, I helped after school quite a bit. Fast forward to last year, jeep gets stolen, my buddy and I recover it 1 week later in its current condition. My buddy and my sister start dating, broken jeep ends up at my dads place, I buy, now I fix. I got it home last night with a full box of paper work and receipts on everything that's been done since they bought it.

    Heep specs:

    92' wrangler, 2.5, power nothin, not even steering.
    136k miles
    4.5" rubicon express lift
    Sway bar quick disconnects
    Slip yoke eliminator
    Tru trac? Lockers front and rear (the ratchety locking ones similar to lock rite)
    Newer soft top
    33/12.5/15 pernelli jones (some type of mud terrain)
    Rebuilt transfer case
    Custom drive shafts
    Armored diffs
    Airaid CAI with the fully cased filter
    Paper weight throttle body spacer
    Steel braided extended brake lines
    Front warn bumper
    Rear warn bumper with spare tire swing gate.
    New flow master muffler and catalytic converter and exhaust piping (I welded them in before it was stolen)


    NEEDS:

    Tires
    New fuel line
    Rear section of soft top
    Steering column repair
    Ignition repair
    Oil leak repair

    Yeah, man! I drove it on and off the trailer in 4 low. It's really not going to take much to get it moving. I'm already craigslisting every free minute I have!

    So I attempted to put my buddies winter explorer wheels and tires on just to move the jeep in and out of my carport (that's the wifes parking spot) the fronts fit but the rear axle hub sticks out too far and the expo wheels don't have a big enough opening. Oh well, at least it's sitting up and even and I can get a jack under it now. I also took the steering column apart, looks like I need an entire ignition, and signal switch set up. I should be able to find an entire assembly pretty easily they're about $100-$200 online for the entire column from the firewall back. Tires are priority número one right now.
