On the fence....new XJ or rebuild my ol trusty ruster.
I can't weld. Not to say that I don't want to learn and actually looking into buying my first welder, been researching. That said, my 2000 XJ is suffering from North East Ohio Rust as well as falling ice damage that smashed up the two driver side doors. Rockers are shot as well as some other parts of the body. I'm looking into picking up another XJ...114k on odometer, a few minor dents. Probably $4,000 and starting over.
I'd have to move the the geared and shafted axles as well as the sye and most of the armor. I'm thinking TnT long arm vs my dropped RC kit too.
Question is start from scratch or try to rescue my Rusty but faithful rig that I owned since new?
