An XJ named "Clotile"

This is how I bought her. Picked her up off an old man 3 years ago for $2500. Power windows and door locks and garage kept her entire life. He said she was only put in 4x4 twice since he bought her new. I have a full build thread going at http://www.cherokeeforum.com/f46/sta...k-90-xj-35908/ if you're interested in details.
