Anyone know of a 1995-1998 Cherokee XJ for sale that looks like it's in good shape???

I might have to sell my DD, and I'm looking at an XJ to replace it, but I can't seem to find one that I like on craigslist

Spent some quality time in the mountains west of Nelson and came across a mine that looked promising, but was all tease, as you can see from the pictures below.

Keep looking, a nice on will pop up every so often. What's your price range?

I've owned two Corvettes, so I was hoping it would do better. I didn't expect it to win. I was just rooting for American muscle.

That Nissan really surrpised me. I know they make some good cars. I just don't think of Nissan when I think supercar.

Great pictures too, D. I think we may have been to the one with the concrete blocks. Pretty sure that was an explosives shed. We saw the same cardboard paper in there that we've seen in other explosives sheds in wooden crates.

That back trail that leads to Fire Mountain Rd has a bunch of portals and adits, but they all seemed to be shallow prospects. I need to get some printed maps of that area. My GPS offroad maps haven't been updated since 2009. Most of those trails date well before then, but for some reason, they're not shown. Not sure why Garmin hasn't released any new offroad maps. Probably putting all their efforts into the imagery maps.

Heading south on Aztec Wash Road past the turnoff to Fire Mountain Cove, there's an active mining claim (or recently active) that there in the Lake Mead boundaries. It was for sale a few years ago, not sure if it still is. They claimed it was producing gold, but apparently not enough for them to not want to sell it!

BTW ... if the truck in the picture below belongs to you, you should be punched in the face ... at least a couple of times. If the truck belongs to someone you know, (1) why in the world would you be friends with the kind of a$$ that would buy a truck like this, and (2) you should punch him in the face ... at least a couple of times. This mensa decided to pass me on the right, on the right shoulder, and then swung into the portion of my lane that I was occupying. My antilocks had a fit I jammed the brakes so hard and just barely missed a collision. If my kid wasn't in the jeep (and if I had a steel front bumper) I might have just held my ground.

That makes 2- lkearoc and wythot. I'll keep an eye out for that one too. A little recon goes a long way! If I locate either of them, we'll have a little party!
