Thank you for letting me join. I'm going to be buying my Dads 87 YJ Laredo from my younger brother. looking forward to getting my old butt off the Yamaha 4 wheeler and riding in comfort. My wife Drives at this time I had a stroke caused by the c virus and lost the left side of my eye sight can't pass drivers eye test yet but eyes are getting better everyday. Brother says he had a tranny leak so he took it too a guy to fix it leaks worse now than before .ITS a 6cyl auto tranny with manual carb 2 tone brown chrome grill AC when dad was alive we used it a few times to go steelhead fishing TROY Oregon ran good and got great fuel mileage .

Good for you getting yourself outdoors!!. I have both myself and use the jeep more and more these days. Screw covid,had it bas in early 21, think I have again right now. Best medicine was to get out and get some sun and fresh air ;) Good luck and enjoy the Jeep.
