They will probably be around a lot longer than a lot of us. I mean, look at how many GP's & CJ's are still around.
I know this could change in the future but as of now, I'm never planning to sell mine and I'm only 31. It could be around for many, many years to come if it stays alive.
Valid point. I was just thinking about those XJ's who see salt. (I live in Maine) I've seen a lot of late model ones that are completely rusted up. They may live on in the south, but elsewhere who knows...

Way of the world I'm afraid - There are quite a few here(UK), on eBay selling for spares? I guess the owners can't afford the rediculous prices quoted by the 'stealerships' for repairs...I was 'quoted' $600 by a bosch specialist to replace my faulty no1 (diesel) injector, parts & labour (it has a needle sensor valve which communicates how much fuel's delivered to the fuel injection pump) fly by wire technology...baa humbug!!!
The injector from 'bosch' costs new, $300..so 10mins work by the 'specialist' to fit = $300 labour charge..thankyou very much, I'll have some of that
It's a good job I know how to weild a spanner(wrench) or mine would be on the 'bay' as spares or repairs???
