Are you sure on the '89 model, they didn't put a 4.0 in until 1991. Did you look at the frame, mainly around the rear spring hangers for rust?

should still be able to fire it up even if the rear shaft and crossmember are out.  {toast} Take a battery or jumper cables  ;D

Good buy maybe.

That's right it would be the 4.2 model right? It was a carbed inline six for sure so ill just say that... Lol... Has leaf fronts so pretty sure its the right year... But I have no interest so its all yalls! Fenders were also fiberglass... Didn't check if doors were or not... Goodluck!

I'm just figuring it was a rust bucket so that's why the fiberglass tub. If so the first place a YJ frame will rust out is around the rear leaf spring @ shackle filtting

That just means a great candidate for a juggy build. ;D

ill try and swing by there this week and look under it... make sure its strong... but i saw no signs of rust... if it was from the Zebulon area there is a jeep junkyard there... his prices are stupid... like there made of gold... but he has like 40 fiberglass bodies... could have been a buddy of his or something... this guy once tried to sell me a AX15 for $450 with the 231 gone and the tail left open... and he didnt know if it worked or not... wanted $200 for a XJ door... lol...
