Had a 95 Cherokee, moved on to a 03 Wrangler (really bad decision for a multitude of reasons) then on to an 07 WRX (super fun car, but missing my jeep). Thinking of trading it in for a Cherokee as a DD. I am expecting to spend more on gas, even though it's less expensive gas. Plus I feel more comfortable with an XJ with 120k vs a WRX with 90k, mechanically.
I've found a 96 that promises to be rust free, but it has 201k on the clock and there is no way I'm having 1 car with that many miles as my sole transport. I might just pick it up, if I can haggle down the price (3600 is high, even for this cherokee sparse area).
Can you all think of anything specific too look for in a high milage XJ? I might think about rebuilding or having a rebuild kitbon hand just in case.
Thanks guys, glad to be back!
