I bought another XJ today. Some of you may remember "Snot", which was my first one. First car of many I have ever sold that I actually missed. Today, out with a co-worker, he wanted to stop by a used car dealer to browse. I "accidentally" ended up with a white 2000.
When I built Snot, I didn't do a very good job with the build thread. This time, without the resources of a full fabrication shop, or even a garage, the build will be much slower but I will document it better.
In the coming days and weeks I will be coming up with a name and doing minor mods, work keeps me away from the Jeep for weeks at a time, but I will do my best. For now, here's the stats:
(Appears to have been recently replaced. Jeep has 225k on the odometer, but this engine seems too clean and too smooth for that many miles.)
rear (Eventually an 8")
Aside from a few scrapes and a cracked windshield that's being replaced by the dealer, the exterior is in great condition. No body rust at all. No stress cracks anywhere. The interior is almost perfect. No tears, no thin spots. Looks like it drove itself 225 thousand miles.
So for now, I leave it at this. Happy new owner of another XJ.
Let the modding commence!
