How about that screw you lost out of your brain case for thinking about selling it!

I'm probably down grading to a 96+ 5-speed XJ. But the next owner is most likely my younger brother (unless anyone on here makes an offer). I'd feel more comfortable beating the **** out of/modding an XJ than a 5.9 ZJ. Plus i can't take driving an auto anymore

Darn, after having a stick for 6 years I am loving an auto again. I couldn't stand it in traffic anymore. I think the XJ would be a whole lotta fun to hack into and make a mad max truck out off. Definitely give it a radical paint job. An xj on 33's looks huge too.

Not putting a 5-speed in the ZJ. Way too much headache and i'd rather wheel an XJ. XJ's wheel way better, way more stable with leafs. Too much luxury with a niner, its annoying. I don't give a **** if the VIC says my washer fluid is low and it keeps beeping, and washer fluids full... I drove a stick from age 15-18 then got my F150 supercrew, then the niner. It's been a year, i wanna drive manual again

I missed stick shift, so today I got a loan for a 2001 Audi S4. 2.7l twin turbo, 6 speed manual, AWD.

It's also tuned by APR so it has 318hp and 382 ft lbs of torque. Next it's getting an exhaust and an E85 tune for more hp's and torques haha.

I also bought a BMW..... 94 BMW 325i. $300 has 300,000 miles on it but it runs and drives safely.

Not a single issue so far! I've got almost 100 miles on the setup.

I'll be heading to Pick n Pull between classes for it with no exact reason. I brought tools and some work clothes. Maybe I'll check out some 242 donors. We'll see what I end up getting. I'm also contemplating jumping on a set of soft 8s that are 15x8 with 4 inches of backspacing. I'd pick them up now but run my stock wheels until I need new tires. Decisions, decisions...
