I have to ride the KRT bus public transportation $1.50 ride to work about 15 miles way cheaper than driving the xj to work every day.

Almost as tough as the jeep:

Though while mine was getting painted, I rode in a dodge caliber. Dunno if that thing is a car or a suv or what, but I was sooo happy to get back into my XJ.

hate it though, gets worse mpg on 235s than my jeep does on 32s.

About to trade it for a Harley with a guy at work though.

So let's hear what everyone else ends up driving when their xj's are not drivable
When I can afford the gas I drive a lifted 98 dodge ram pickup 1500

1993 cadillac fleetwood. just cause some days i wake up and say "i really don't wanna drive a stick shift today" probably going to be my dd though once i get the XJ lifted. i also have an 87 firebird with a 2.8 v6 which will probably be my summer dd cause the t-tops.

I'm not saying we should kill stupid people... Just get rid of all the warning labels...
If you find my comments to "infer" something, they don't. Go to hell.
