i have been looking around cl for a while and found what seems to be a good deal on a 99 cherokee sport auto with a 8.25 rear end
for 600 bucks.
i looked at it today and kind of like it but i like to body style of the zj better and the fact that they are taller stock mine currently has a 2"bb and 28 inch tires
this xj i found needs some rust fixed below the back passenger door on the rocker, tires and, lift gate shocks, has a 200,000 miles on the body and 130,000 on the motor and trans/transfer case.
is there anyone who went from a zj to an xj? or xj to zj?
how do they compare handling wise on road, off road would be a few times a year
i would like to fix it and sell or keep it and sell my zj, and make a small profit (i have no job and in college and i know a few things about fixing cars, also have a but load of tools).
my zj has 230,000 with an r-title and i have about 2200 in it and would like to sell it for that if i do sell. unfortunately i didnt get to test drive the xj and will be looking at it again before i decide for sure what i am doing, but i wanted input
also does anyone have a link for a list of what needs done for what size lift, say if i put a 3" lift on an xj does the track bar need moved and shocks need lengthened?
thank you for helping
