search around for more in depth answers but $2000 for a 97 with 108k is a steal if its in great condition. just check for the usual leaks and signs of abuse. xjs arent as road tamed as zjs, just remember that when you take it for a drive. make sure the radio works too, youll need it, trust me. ;)

2000 is a very good deal. I just bought a 1994 XJ sport last saturday for 3,200 with 111,000 on her.

well i know its not beat he isnt like that i work with him he's more of a prefectionist (sp) found out today it has a bad heater core how are these to change out ?? i know the zj u have to take the dash out...but the good part it has all new brakes newer tires new K&n air filter...comes with the heater core...new exhaust and we are fixing the exhaust manifold gasket sometime before i get it

thats a crazy good deal... i got my 97 blue xj with 110,000 miles for 4700$.. it was also in like perfect condition though....mine only needed a few leaks fixed and it runs amazing

That's an amazing deal. Replace the K&N with an AC Delco or some other paper one, because K&N filters very badly. I don't feel like posting a link for the 100th time, but it lets 45x as much dirt through for a couple horsepower at wide open throttle, so throw it out ASAP

crazydude2500 07-13-2008 09:04 PM

well i got it and we fixed everything but the heater core doing the transfer tommorow and insurance it needs to be cleaned out really well but it seems to run fine little exhaust rattle
