I personally would love to have found that XJ. Chrome trim and painted flairs means that was one of the luxury models. My first, an '87, was like that only white(kind of off white). I buffed 'er many times over 9 years, what a beaut' she was. Like a mini Escalade

Windshield $200+-, rear window (jy) 50+-, and the axle shaft can be where you start to build it. These things are put together with the complexity of Legos, they're so easy its fun. Instead of fearing the axle shaft situation, price out a front axle at the jy while you're there for the back window.
When you see how easily you replace it, you'll dive in from there.

Also, of any project vehicle, these would definitely be one of the cheapest.

Sorry, read back, '87. Ya, get rid of it, but I tell you what, if you like this old body style, my '95 is the exact same body as yours, but it has many nice upgrades and improvements over the earlier models.

I sure wish I was closer to where you are, I'd love to buff that paint out for you. You'd have a lot more likeness for it if it had some shine. 1 thing you could try, when you wash it, use a sponge and scrub it like you were cleaning a chalk board, you should be able to get most of the haze out, then wax it. When you're done, use the towel you unwaxed with and wipe the windshield and windows, this will give them a rain-x effect.

I love the look of 33's, but I got a lot of money tied up in 3.5" lift and 31's. Aside from the money though, I think I'm happy with what I've built so far. I really don't see unuf need for 33's to be willing to lose the horsepower. I'm also trying to keep the engine as stock as possible for the sake of longevity.
