someone find me one please.
I saw one in Hel last summer. Idk if it was the SE, but the hatch was bashed with the consequential rear damage. I'd bet the ones that are worth having aren't going up for sale. But good luck, I'll keep an eye out for ya.

I don't understand everyone's fascination with 2 door Cherokees, Blazers, Tahoe, Yukon etc... It's not any sportier and with the XJ's extra long door it just creates more chances for the hinges to fall off.

Yep, like I said, it's nothing more than a visual appeal. But in the 4 years I've had mine, I've had the hinges welded back up twice. But like I also mentioned, it keeps it from being the family vehicle so my drivers door is the only one that suffers.

Another thing that sucks about 2drs is if you'd like to swap out seats, they need to come from a vehicle that has seats that fold forward, Grand Cherokees dont.

Lightly flopped it. Wheeling is dangerous. Keep that **** in mind.

Finally got the XJ started after 2 long weeks of her just sitting in the driveway...after much trouble shooting and changing the nss, turned out to be a problem with the starter not getting power from the fuse box; checked every fuse/relay, had the starter tested twice, cleaned all the grounds and she just wouldn't start. So the easiest solution was to put in a push start like my roommates TJ; he's had one for 2 years and it hasn't given him a problem. Might not be a long term solution but I needed to get the beast back on the road

I've done that a few times, you look pretty well safe here since the cab pillar is touching the ground already.

Yeah I know but still this was on a trail I normally can do just like its nothing. On the easy line. If it was a bit farther over it would have been really bad. I am just throwing that out their. I got lucky. People need to remember that it's not like the sandbox any more haha...

I drove in a parade today, keeping it frameless and shameless

Also I think my passenger side rocker is dented in that exact same spot from the same situation.
