rare or common??

hey guys, i was just wanting to know if my cherokee is too rare to be built, if it actually is super uncommon then ill just sell it to a responsible adult, but i'm 20 and i want a wheeler, i absolutely love my cherokee to death but i dont want to ruin it if there arent any others out there..
its a '92 cherokee sport 2 door 5 speed 4.0l h.o 4x4 with stock LSD, i dont know the gearing right now, but i looked for a 5 speed 4x4 4.0l cherokee for about a year and a half and finally ran across this 2 door in august of '12, and since then ive been just searching around out of curiosity to see if i can find one in the same configuration ever since. i had found one in that time but it was a complete and total POS it had been wheeled so hard and had 240k, the guy wanted 2500 for it and it sold within one day, and since i bought mine with 140k for 2 grand and its in absolute pristine cond. im getting really curious and cautious about building it, because if its that rare, as much as i want to keep it, it shouldnt be in my hands, let me know, i dont want to ruin it if its a rare find

Nope not rare at all, just give it to me. 2 doors are worthless and I'll take the burden of owning it.

90 - xj laredo- 4.5" rough country lift, 6.5" of total lift with drop brackets, zj disc brakes on c8.25, olympic winch bumper, jcr upper and lower quarter armor, IRO hack-n-tap and rock sliders and rear bumper. rugged ridge 8500lb winch. Spartan locker up front. With a jd yellow paint job, 97+ front end and bushwacker cut out flares. 35's

i i want to, believe me, but in the 80's my dad bought a 440 6-pack all numbers matching cuda for 800 dollars, he blew it up in a week, but now look how much theyre worth, thats what i dont want to happen, the 2 door auto's are plentiful, and although i hate auto's i love 2 doors, so i'd do a swap instead of killing this beaut

i even googled it and it lead me to this forum saying they had never really seen one when some other guy asked, and that was just for a 5 spd 2wd 2door

Honestly I had a black two door 5 speed, and I would love another one but I'm stuck with this four door. I used the 5 speed parts to convert this one

BUILD IT! I love built 2 doors. You can wheel it and not beat on it. I wheel mine and it's not a total mess unlike one of my buddies. He wheels his to satisfy himself and challenge his XJ.

They're not rare, but they're by no means as common as autos or 4 doors. I wouldn't hesitate for second to build one though OP.

It would indeed be rare if it had a 440 and six-pack. All kidding aside, an XJ will never compare to the value of the true old Mopars like your Dad's.

If you own a Renix Jeep, you'll want to check this out.

Doesn't matter just build it. I have a 5sp 4dr and thought the same for a while then I got passed the idea and realized its just another xj. The rarest version of a xj I have ever seen was a stock turbo diesel. Plus I think 2drs only look good built in my mind

yeah im looking up build threads for them now, this one i might keep nice and as a DD for the next 30 years (lord knows itll last that long), and get at auto 2 door to chop up.. ive tried making drawings of possibly chopping off the rear part like most people do, but not closing it in, but yet making a fiberglass top for it like the old broncos and blazers, havent seen one person do that yet, only soft tops.. and the drawings make it look sick
