Better, And Redder Build Thread.
 
Yo as most of u no i had a 01 60th an. ed. XJ that i built. well it had some rust issues in the floors, so for fun i put it on CL listed for 7k, well i got a call and the guy offered 6800 so i took it...


so i went out and bought a 00 Red XJ, 158k miles, D30/8.25. interior is super clean, paint was ok, has some scratches but oh well i gonna wheel it. and a minor dent on the front panel that ill get out. cracked windshield, saggy suspension, and brand new 235 falkon zein tires. paid $3996 with tax.
