Well, I was looking for a mid-80's 4Runner... and was going to fund it by selling off my 2wd Toyota pickup.... Turns out the pickup sold really quick, I was without a ride, couldn't find the right 4 Runner, and stumbled across my Jeep Very Happy for a pretty good price...at least I think it was a good price. ($2999)

It's a 91 YJ with only 92k miles on it, has the 6 cyl EFI, 4L engine with 33" tires, Full metal Doors, and Tube bumpers and tube side steps. Also has a hard top...As soon as I figure out how to post pics I will...

I'm glad I found this forum...I'm trying to educate myself best on what to do with this beast... I am having the rear shocks replaced soon... the existing ones have ripped the shock mounts almost in half... I have some new mounts on the way from quadratec.com, and the guys at Meineke assured me they fix those all the time...

I guess my question is... what would have ripped the shock mounts like that? Is it possible the shocks are too long? Also, In order to get some new shocks, I am thinking I will need to determine how much of a lift it has... sorry about my ignorance, but how do I figure that out?

Thanks![/img]
