Hey Jeepers, I do a lot of creeping and not much posting, but I need some input:
I bought my first Jeep a few months ago, and it's been a huge money pit ever since.
I've always liked the XJ look and was damn excited to start working on it and slaying mountains. After spending probably too much on her it seems like there's something new going wrong every week. Cracked manifold, ball joints, U-joints, transmission mount, electrical issues, and I've recently figured out I have the Peugeot tranny, which I've heard is garbage.
I have limited mechanical experience and lack the time and money to fix, let alone build on this Jeep very much for the time being.
Should I stick it out with this old lady (It's an '89, Laredo), or just run it to the ground and find a better XJ to start with?
I'm losing my faith in Jeeps, what would you do?
