Default YJ deathtrap

Saw this pulling into Mcdonalds parkinglot today in Battle Creek today while on lunch. The owner, some skater type kid, laughed at me when I told him to take it off the road immediatly! So... if your in Battle Creek and notice a black YJ with a stainless tire cover, 33's, rusted to junk, and some weird GPS looking thinggy going straight up along the driverside mirror beware!

He's got enough body lift to compensate for the lack of frame.

Shit that looks fine to me.

You should have kicked it so it would have broke then laughed at him.

this is whole reason i put the garden hose in the frame holes and let it run for 1/2 hour at a shot in each end to rinse all this shit out of there!!!

the sad part is that kid will drive that thing for anther 6 months while doing 3 grand clutch dumps and never have an issue any of use owned it it would have already been busted while climbing into the drivers seat

I have drove worse. my rocker broke under the driver door of my `73 Comet and I jacked up and shut the door. I drove it like that till the spring box ripped out and came through the floor, drove it another 3 months till I found a body for the drive line and tossed it.
