I have been into jeeps for years. i finally got one of my brothers to cometo the dark side. he is getting a 91 xj.
a few specs
4.0 w/ auto
waggy 44 front
6'' lift w/ mx6 shocks
disk brakes front and rear
this belonged to a friend of mine that started a engine/ tranny swap and lost interest. he pulled the stock engine/5 speed manual and replaced it with another 4.0 and an automatic and never finished the wiring for the tranny. it was cheap enough though.
after he signs up on here ill have him post in here.
in all seriousness, im pretty stoked to get the new to me xj, this will be my first foray into 4 wheeling, both of my other rides never see mud, and if i can help it... no dirt roads either. ive already bugged the hell out of MGDWJ askin stupid questions, and hope to bug the hell out of the rest of you as soon as i get my hands on my xj.

ok, MGDWJ delivered my xj last week, just been doin piddly **** so far trying to get an accurate inventory of what came with it. also starting a list of parts needed. gonna need to either get a parts jeep, or hit a super cool you pull jy and start grabbing the miscellaneous bolts nuts parts and pieces needed. only things i can see right off are new motor mounts, these are trash, and a lower radiator hose. Its gonna be a couple weeks till i can get my mechanic buddy to come by and help me figure out the rats nest of wiring, but hopefully in a month or two we can have it out and beating up the trails.
got all the stuff to get the front end back together, hit the fenders and hood with some rustolium, added a rear bumper, and build a shift tab for the tranny. couldnt find any shifters at the jy i hit, they only had manuals, so i'll prolly end up building my own, plus the transfer case linkage isnt lining up, so that will need to be modified as well. thinkin about grabbing some rod ends and all thread and simplify everything. pulled the battery from my Rango and tried to crank it, but the motor just spins, so i think the timing is off.
sometime this week i'll get out and pull the dissy and reset it and see what happens.
