It is nice to have the option to walk, yeah I feel ya there. Mine didn't run for a month that's why I was walking. You still haven't been able to figure yours out though? That's gotta be tiring man.

Boy, us ZJ owners are screwed up in the head

I passed up a 96 with a 5.2 for $600 when I did my motor swap.
Theres a 9'r here in my town that's asking $6k! Claim its showroom mint with Jus over 100k on it I think.

$6k is about right for a Niner in my area with that kind of mileage. I wouldn't be surprised to see something like that for sale around me for $8k+. Chicagoland has a stupid expensive used car market.

...when your neighbor is like "your jeep still ain't running? I'll be gone for a week, use mine!"

He's the captain of a fishing boat and leaves tomorrow for a trip, left me the yj.

I've gotten the wave from XJs, WJs, and most wranglers. I've only seen 1 or 2 lifted ZJs here, which is a good thing. I need to be one that's lifted here haha.

Am I the only one who truly could care less if they get waved at by other men?

Ot: When you want one in V8, but cant bring your self to sell the one you have, despite not having room for another one, funds to keep two on the road, or time to maintain both.

I don't care, I drive a Zj, I'm used to not seeing it. I was Jus caught off guard by it!

Funny thing is I seen this jeep around plenty in the Zj. I guess a BB and 31's ain't enough to get noticed in a Zj.
