1991 Jeep Wrangler, 115,000 miles, 4 cyl. 5 speed, tires almost new. Some bonehead stole the doors but the previous owner bought some from a salvage. I'll be painting them soon. Had to fix an exhaust leak (nut missing from flange), cleaned connection on printed circuit board for gas gauge to work, tightened adjusting nut on top of steering box, and put bolts back in trans mount (they had fallen out). It was running rough with a very low idle so I fixed some vac leaks and pulled out the IAC valve and it was filthy with carbon. I cleaned it and it idles very smooth now. I buffed it out, changed the oil and need to put on a new valve cover gasket.

A guy my wife works with knows I tinker on cars. He told her about it and she called me. I already started on one door.

watch the head gaskets on that 4 cylinder. that and the manifold bolts in the head were the only issues. if you have the french ax-15? tranny dont go beating it up. will not take to power shifting. nice looking ride though. does she have a/c?

Yep, the head has been redone cause it popped the gasket. He also had the timing belt changed 2500 miles ago. No AC. I could not live with the brown spray paint over white doors. I stripped the doors to metal and fixed the dents. Detail painted all the hardware and painted the doors satin black. It would have been impossible for me to match the red. I think the black looks good with all the black accents.
