I think what you meant to say is that you can't afford NOT to have a better Jeep!
How did I miss this post??

Matt, my XJ needs so much work. It needs a windshield before safety and emissions, it needs tires soon, the radiator needs swapped out. If I kept it I would paint it. The power locks need help, the driver's power window needs a new motor. There's several little wiring issues that I really should take care of. It needs a valve cover gasket and a couple vacuum lines replaced. It needs springs on all four corners. The shocks are original. The headliner needs attention.

The tabs are up on it at the end of August and the insurance on it is 3/4 of our total. In other words it's twice as expensive as my wife's Neon and our renter's insurance combined.

So if I can sell the XJ for $500 before the tabs are due and pick up the CJ-5 for $500, the tabs are cheaper, the insurance is 1/3 and it doesn't need a whole lot in the way of repairs or attention.

The only things the CJ-5 really need are the rockers rhino lined and eventually a set of tires. If I get picky about it, it could use a set of seat covers and the top could use being doused in Armor All for a few hours.

I'd have a much more capable offroad Jeep, cheaper insurance, no real repairs to speak of, and I'd have a hell of a lot more fun.


All I need to do now is find a buyer for the XJ that's not going to try and chew me down to $200 and hope like hell the CJ-5's owner was serious when he said he'd sell it for $500...

It's that one I got the picture of when I stopped to talk to the guy.



The only way I know how to get a hold of him is at his work, which I no longer pass every day.

Also, the Richard Cranium I was trying to sell my XJ to said he would only offer me $200 for it. I restrained myself long enough to tell him I'd sell it to Pic-a-part first. The brand new alternator, offroad lights and the inverter were worth more than that!!!

I knew it was quick, but I'm surprised at 15's. I would've expected 16-17 range. Especially with 235 hp. Bone stock my GTP is 240.
