Default TAN BOMBER the junkyard find

Just picked this 92 4 dr Laredo h.o. 4.0l auto np242 up. Definitely a project. But I will use parts from my now retired LIMITED HERO 89 xj with h.o. /renix hybrid.

So far it needs a battery, door panels, headliner(maybe), see if it will start. There more most likely.

Now for some of the good stuff. I believe it has a 6.5" rough country x-series lift.
Coils, adjustable uppers and lowers, adjustable track bar, double shear track bar mount, quick disconnect sway bar end links, steel braided break lines front and rear, full leaf packs and shackles.
Looking around this lift goes for 800-899. I got the jeep with lift for 825.

Looks a little ruff, but for 800 bills you can't go wrong!

Gets my vote!

Sweet. With that amount of lift, I would upgrade to long arms. But all in all looks like a good project

That's way my other jeep was. When I bought it some kid was going go the next day to put an offer on it.

Yeah I was already looking at them. But in the future first thing is to get it to a daily driver status.

Gluck
The little roughness isn't much pics don't really do it justice. Some of the thing I added to my limited will be swapped which should clean it up. At least the body isn't beat like limited hero, it liked to play in rock without protection. Lol

Well took two spare 35s and put them on the bomber. Also I'm loving this jeep more and more every time I look at it I find something else. Like today down swapping rollers for 35s. And noticed all the doors are removable and since they are power have wires all set up to plug and unplug. Also tossed a battery in it it starts and runs good .

Noticed a check engine light but has a crack in exhaust manifold right about the o2 sensor and maybe a small vacuum leak. But no real reason so far to why it was at the junkyard. Haven't driven it yet when I do it will be a little drive in fwd since rear drive line is out and it in middle of a hack n tap.

Good start. You think you will have this running in a month or so?

it ran yesterday. Getting limited hero towed down today. I going to put a grand Cherokee back seat I have laying around in for the back seat. Next major thing is will it drive which I hope to test soon. Then to get a yoke for the hack n tap. I need to sell limited to get my money back so if I do need to take major vital parts that will be best. Also get to use my manual doors. And cut up the stock ones for half door.

Made a video (not the best either) I'm have a weird high idle then it will almost stall out and then got back to high idle.

Also got all my 35" Baja claws on.

Check vacuum leaks first.

1+ on the vacuum leak check, also check the TPS as a bad signal there can cause idle issues. Any codes being thrown?

Was a CEL I had changed out the IAC then notice it was gone. I'm going to spend most of the day with it. Beside this when I swapped out the rear tires yesterday I took the drums off and passenger side needs brake shoes. So instead of buying brakes for it I'm going to do the zj disk brake swap I have sitting around.
