I've been seeing all these XJs for sale around me for pretty cheap so...out of impulse I bought this off craigslist.
Few things first, this isn't my only jeep, or only vehicle. I currently have my 97 TJ and an 05 ford f150.
Heres the link to my TJ if interested.
what the XJ is:
Aftermarket steel front and rear bumpers
2" lift. No idea of what kind
Roof basket which I added from a friend right after I picked it up.
And some rust!
swap out the rusty 2" lift and replace it with a 3" lift
Some offroad lights. Probably LED
Take off the decals
New exhaust, this one is barely there.
Any maintenance I come across. I just picked it up so I haven't looked into it too much.
Over all, I drove it about 80 miles today with no problems. Besides the rattling loud exhaust. The rockers have been reinforced. Little rust on the bottom of the inside of the door. But overall, the fenders are all in one piece and underneath looks pretty good from what I've looked at since I brought it home. Needs some TLC. Passenger power window only works when it wants, and one of the rear doors doesnt open. Fog lights up front dont work. But the 4x4 works! lol
This is my first go with an XJ though..so we will see what happens.
