They r decent vehicles. Thought about buying one as a DD. not trading my CJ for one but I don't have one sitting in the shop awaiting an overhaul either. So, if having another vehicle thats reliable is worth it, go for it.

Alright, Guys. Yes, I have lost my mind, but only slightly! It was a moment of little sleep and impending work load. I was ready to jump! But only for a second. I drove Clay's Jeep to work yesterday, 50*, with a heavy coat and sock hat, through town, pulled into the parking lot, and I received comments all day. Turned heads going through town. Stopped for gas and two people came up to me and asked about it. It was SOO FREAKIN' COOL! What a HUGE ego boost! Can't believe I still have one and that it's that big! I thoughly enjoyed driving Clay's Jeep, and I can't wait to get mine on the road. I picked up some more cutting wheels for the die grinder today.

The XJ is for Fallon, my 13 YO. I have been watching CL and have a possible choice, if it doesn't sell. Here is the link. http://jacksonville.craigslist.org/cto/3438866846.html

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

Only slightly? I bet Bill will contest that statement.

XJ looks pretty good Scott and ready to drive too.

Seller says no surprises... it will drive back here. He has a potential buyer coming over in 20 minutes. He will let me know if the guy buys it. hour and a half trip one way...
