AustinTexasXJ's slow pony seXJ build
 
What what ATXJ got a hold of a steal, 1992 XJ limited with 142k. This baby is barely breaking in. P/O was a 78 year old Vet that's owned this xj since 92.

Current stage/plan: (7/12/2014) new plan for this jeep is going to be a expedition, daily driver rig that can handle the daily commute as well as hit the trails on the weekends for fun. Backstory for those who haven't seen the old post, got this jeep for my little sister with hopes of building it up and giving it to her for her first car. She ended up not waiting it blah blah, my dad started driving it and fell in love with it. My goal is to get this thing built up for him now, hoping that he will get back into off-roading and go out do stuff with me on the weekends. Another goal is to build this thing up and spend under $5,000 USD including the purchase price of $800. Follow a long and ask as many questions as you want. I'm gonna be learning some fab work later on in the build with hopes of making and selling some stuff. Also if anyone would like to donate anything feel free to send me a PM with whatcha got.

current build total:$1,920.00

Few more pictures from today, I fixed the oil leak from the oil filter adapter, 2 New o rings and I'm good as new. Total so far in the jeep. 805.92 dollars.
But of course when you fix one thing you break something else. New oil pressure sending unit 29ish bucks. New total 835.00
