looking to buy an XJ in philly

hey everyone, i have been trolling this forum for a while now doing my research and whatnot. i am in the military and have traveled to the land far, far away and developed a social attachment for multi-purpose vehicles such as the hummer. now that i get back into my honda (because it was economical at the time i bought it), i feel really lame as you can imagine.

i really want something that resembles a hummer and came to an XJ. i do not really want a wrangler because if i have to pack up and move, i wont have as much room. also, if i go bar hopping, i would want something where i can put down the back seats, unroll my sleeping bag and take a snooze or if i meet a girl, then we can have an intimate encounter.

for purposes sake, i would assume i would not want a 2000-2001 because they do not have headers for them and the ignition is very different? also considering they are OBD3 for emissions would not be ideal? i really want something that would be fun to work on, but yet reliable. i am thinking of something none renix... maybe say 1991-1999? is that a good bet? or should i try and get 1997-99 because everything was updated then?

i would also like something where i can rent a u-haul auto transport for my RX7. apprentally they wont allow wranglers anyways since they do not have a "roof". i would gather that if i can keep a 1995 rx7 twin turbo with a rotary engine running and maintained, then an XJ would not be too hard. please help me out here, because i know that from this point forward, i will be a frequent forum member of this site

1995 Mazda RX7 FD3S 13B-REW

for the best years look into a 99 for the new body style and a 95/96 for the old body style. both models will be easy to work on and satisfy the requirements of your vehicle search.

good luck and thanks for your service.
