my newest xj



98 2.5l 5 speed, sold my 2000 that had a rough country lift and 33in tires. I hated that truck the cheap crappy lift on it rode awful. I've been getting awesome gas mileage with this so far.

I haven't calculated yet because I haven't had it long enough but I got 75 miles on 1/8th of a tank so far. It's so slow lol

it was either a new body style 2 door or a comanche. I'm liking the 2 door. I'll 4.0 auto swap it eventually.

I could really go for a nice 5 speed Cherokee. Love the color on that but the plastic around the wheel wells is not so nice IMO.
