The collection

93 5.2 LTD: 217K miles. My DD and winter driver. Kolak 3" cat back and ign kit. K&N CAI. MP PCM. 96 flipglass hatch. de-racked. 217K miles.



resurrected from this...




98 5.9 LTD: 107K miles. Stock. de-racked and de-light barred. 46RE spit out it's 2nd gear band anchor. Think this one's gonna be a 5spd too.




98 5.9 LTD: 165K miles. Stock except for NV242 Tcase. Bought as a parts car - imagine that! Stole the clear corners for my 5spd.


(someone buy this Jeep plz!)


98 5.9 LTD: NV3550 5spd w/ Dodge Ram 5spd PCM. Vortech V2. Sanderson headers and 3" to rear. Crane Hi6R w/ adjustable. SCT tuner on way. Going to be SC'd 408 or bigger cube NA eventually.

Drivetrain and body still "as built" by Duke of JU SF - plus some custom body work courtesy of a cell phone talkin' mini cooper driver.
Maybe I've seen the movie Christine too many times - I expected it would have repaired itself by now - but since it looks like I'll have to repair it myself, after the new fender and door go on it will be restored to solid Platinum, re-badged and back to 5.9 rims or other 5 spoke wheels.








and last but not least - the beast!!

98 5.9 LTD: 124K miles.
On Jenny Craig diet. Lost maybe 3 - 500 lbs so far, a lot more to go. "2 seater edition". Only what it needs to make it run. 2WD 727 trans/Dodge 5spd PCM/BIG motor!
Radically re-wired, will probably include FAST or IEMS3 alongside factory PCM (gotta pass emissions)



now...









...now were did this stuff go? lolz



and..

One too many I'm afraid. In fact I'm getting fed up dealing with emissions on the 5.9s. Thinking how nice it would be to have a 67 Dart again.

Had a cracked left upper control arm body bracket and a lien title that the PO didn't know how to clear.
Nice $200 welding job and a few inquiries to the bank listed as the lienholder - and one 5.9 back on the road!

Guy I bought it from was the second owner. First owner owned a couple of car washes and obviously kept it highly detailed. When the second guy got it, looks like he used it as a work vehicle so it got some wear and tear at that point.
He was parting it out but wasn't getting the response he was looking for, I called him about a couple of parts - ended up with the whole Jeep minus the headliner and ATC HU that he had already sold.
That exactly how I ended up with the Dark Slate one too!

oh hellz no!
They are all running and drivable - in fact the only one that isn't insured and registered is the Dark Slate light weight build.

The 242 I've been using as my DD for the past month. Friday I took the covers off the 93 and the 5spd and blasted around town for a bit to keep 'em from getting too stale.
The only one I don't drive regularly is the Stone White, cuz that's at my "almost ex" wifes so she can use it as a backup for when her 99 WJ breaks down every third day!

kinda pissed I got a case of 5.9 greed when that Dark Slate came around. I had that light weight build planned around an early Base Model ZJ. That's the lightest ZJ you can start with, very few options, not even any door cladding - and no emissions in MA cuz it's OBD1!

Re: The collection

...not to mention the two parts cars.

94 5.2 LTD. Hit hard left rear door. Got lots of good parts - engine/trans/tcase went to 5.2zjkid of JU and SFN.






98 5.2 LTD. Sweet sweet ride. This belonged to my landlord's sons friend.
I knew how the kid drove so I told landlord's son to let me know when he crashed it.
The very same day I got the 94 delivered - I got the call. I'm like wtf, he couldn't have crashed this before I bought the 94? LOL
Other than the right rear that got hit almost everything about it except the driver's door panel was mint .
Dark Slate too - that was not a 5.9 only color.
