just the soft top comes with. and no winch, but the front bumper is big enough for one. I will take floor pan pictures today at lunch. I can guarantee that there is no rust on the floor pans. I only repainted because all the paint was pealing and messing up the carpet.
And the tires were mounted on those rims this spring. I still have the original wheels.

I did spray the underside before winter. I wire brushed it all with a power drill to get the surface rust off. no holes no rot. The sweet drain plugs are obvious what they are. the old ones were leaking and I didn't really want to go find or buy actual plugs, plus these wont rust. the driver side floor has the rust color from the floor mat. I just put a bedliner in the back and bolted the seat down on top of it. Looks good and makes interior quite. Just put a new muffler on and it does not sound like a rice burner. very low rumble.

honestly, sadly in this market i would be hardpressed to see you get 4K.

it looks super clean but the 2.5 become duds around 100K miles.


btw it looks like you have taken really good care of it, i like.

this is the second 4cylinder I have owned. it has been a lot better than the first since I have found 4bangerjp.com I do understand that not everyone likes them, but the motors are available like crazy and easy to rebuild and swap out. I also have the taurus electric fan for it but waiting for the funds to get the easy wiring kit so I just don't cobble something in.

so you confirm a blow-by issue with the 2.5's....its no secret.

I had a yj with a 2.5 and liked it, just wondering the fix if i ever get another one. Mine had serious blow-by at 112K and was a well maintained jeep its whole life.

so what is the fix?


"snap it to a slim jim" - i just did brother :woot:

from the 4bangerjp.com forum

It's possible that disconnected vacuum line was part of the CCV system. (closed crankcase ventilation). The CCV system allows crankcase vapors to be burnt in the engine by routing them from the valve cover to the intake manifold. If that CCV line is clogged or disconnected, the CCV system will run in reverse and push oil from the valve cover to the airbox.

The crankcase gets fresh air from the airbox, so with the jeep running pull the airbox end of the hose coming from the valve cover. It should be sucking air into the valve cover, if it's not then the CCV is not working properly.
Find the hose from the valve cover to the intake manifold. Remove the fitting where it attaches to the valve cover and make sure the small orifice inside is open and free of carbon build-up.
I wouldn't jump into a rebuild or a band-aid fix of a catch can.

For the little four bangers I have found amazing help from 4bangerjp.com and the noise the 2.5L is common. may sound like a little diesel but nothing is severely wrong.
