New to the forum! I bought her about a month ago with ~150k miles. Pretty immaculate inside and out. Just needs the hood resprayed. Spent her youth being towed behind an RV. I'm letting her "be a jeep." She's already gotten to pull down a few trees and pull a tractor out of a ditch. She's livin' her dream life, now.

That color combo looks excellent to say the least!

Nice! And Welcome Aboard!
My '91 spent most it's life behind a coach, too.
But the PO was a GPAA member and it got dragged down a lot of washboard dirt roads, likely with street pressure in the tires.
15,000 lb coach is just surfing while the poor Jeep got beat to death.
With only 114,000 miles the springs were completely collapsed, to the point the lower radiator hose rubbed on the diff.

Looking good. I like the hood patina on old YJ's to be honest. I'd be tempted to just clean up the hood and seal it so it doesn't get worse but retains that look. I also understand wanting it to look good too though, so whichever lol.

Good luck with it.
