I have a 96 XJ 2.5 5 speed, that I bought from an impound yard. The front drive shaft was missing. I changed the engine oil, flushed the radiator, replaced the thermostat, changed the transfer case fluid, and check oil levels on the diffs.
The problems it had was the previous owner removed all the heater controls, to make room for his huge stereo. It had also the floor rusted completely through.
The only thing that is not stock, is 225 75 r16 tires. I plan on using it for a daily driver, the only time I would use the 4 wheel drive is in the winter time and when I put my jet ski in the water at a sandy beach. I will do some small amount of off-roading when I go hunting.
