Which is best?

http://orlando.craigslist.org/cto/2368643903.html <--- ZJ with 4.0, 166k miles, 35" tires, 8" of lift.

http://orlando.craigslist.org/cto/2353311488.html <---- XJ 6" lift, 4.0, 200K miles, new tires.


So which one would you go for? I'm not really familiar with ZJs or XJs as I normally keep to the YJ and WJ forums.
TIA
Zach

Depends on actual condition. But the xj definitely because the tranny in the zj is not known for it's reliability. The xj has a rock solid drivetrain.

if you get the XJ you might want to put some long arms in it. 6" and short arms isn't very good

Should I be worried about how many miles are on it? Edit: 197k miles on the XJ! Would this be scary to drive 3 hours home? (A lot on the highway.)
