should I trade my xj??

I have a 1998 classic xj, its stock with over sized tires. Solid body, unknown miles because my dash is messed up and dies. It says 128, xxxmiles. My buddys dad has a 1997 sport, its also stock but it has the 5 speed in it with the tow package. The only rust is on the drivers rocker and above the drivers rear fender flare. It has 192xxx. Should I trade? Or should I keep mine as it is. I have plans for lift kit, tires, ect...

Why would you trade yours for a less clean, older, and higher mileage one?

Im unsure of the actual miles on mine and Its getting a new radiator, clutch and a new slave cylinder. The rust on it is an easy fix so thats the least of my worries

I know some older xj's with the tow package got a d44 in the rear. That would be a reason to trade (If it has one). Otherwise stick with your 98 unless you are a 5 speed kinda guy.
