Doesn't look terribly beat... I'd go for it. Not sure how many were manual transmissions, but I believe it's uncommon.

Thank you! I didn't get a chance to look at it today because someone decided to rear end my car today. So I am going to try to see it tomorrow.

Not too many 97+ were manuals, and even less so 2 doors. Seems to be in pretty good shape, although as with all used cars, make sure you give it a pretty thorough check.

Will do for sure. Hey do you or anyone know the towing weight timit for this XJ? I read 2000 lbs in one place and then 5000 lbs in another place. If I need to tow something I just want to know how much she can pull! Thank you

The towing capacity of an xj is 5000lbs and remember, there is a 500lb max tongue weight (10% max towing amount)

id say its a good deal at that price if it checks out mechanically. Also, take a look underneath for rust.
