Hi all! I apologize if I'm asking the same questions that have been asked over and over again, but I'm new to the Jeep world (and the 4x4 world for that matter).
I've found a '93 XJ 2dr, auto trans. Only showing 115,xxx on the clock. I'm assuming (well, hoping) that it has the 4.0L, although I don't know for sure right now because it's at a dealer (one of those "You work, You ride" deals). It has a NP231 (I've been reading... impressed?
), I'm pretty sure anyway, because the shift pattern is 2H-4H-N-4L.
Now... just a few quick questions for you guys.
#1. Any way to tell what engine by the VIN? I did stop and get that much info.
#2. I have a connection to a guy at this dealer. I called him, he called dealer guy, and dealer guy told him that he'd give it to me for $1,200-$1,500 depending on what he paid for it (he didn't remember off hand). Good deal?
#3. Most importantly, when I go test drive this thing, what are some things to check out. I'm very mechanically inclined, and know quite a bit about vehicles, so I know all the obvious things. But what are some known concerns on these things?
Thanks for any advice you guys can give me, and thanks for bearing with a XJ Noob.
