2000 XJ plus winter wheels and tires. Clean. Denver area.

This Jeep has 207k miles on the clock, but is in great shape. As far as I know, there's nothing wrong with it other than minor cosmetic issues and some tears in the side of the driver's seat. I have kept up the maintenance, done some of the big*items on it within the past two years, and some "modern" upgrades as well.

This jeep is a great 4x4 that I've taken up roads like some of the shelf roads and Fall River Road several times. It's an automatic transmission and the transfer case is the one that has all the options: 4 wheel high full time, 4 wheel high part time, neutral, 2 wheel drive, and 4 wheel low.

It's great in the snow, and with the maintenance and upgrades, has made a great and fun vehicle for many years*for me. I average about 19 miles per gallon (up from about 16.5 before I did all the work) and I regularly do 80mph with it. I'm only selling it because I've turned into an everyday long distance commuter and I've already got another project car. Time for me to get something a bit more directed towards commuting.

This is a strong, clean base for anyone to build their dream XJ or to keep "basically stock". I love this vehicle. The engine, even with these miles, is in great shape and my mechanic just laughed at me when I asked when it'd give up the ghost so I could have an excuse to build it into a stroker. It's going strong and shows no signs of trouble. He expects it'll see another 100k with regular maintenance.
Here's the list to the best of my recollection:

Recent major updates and maintenance:
*- Rear main seal
*- NP242 Transfer case replaced with a remanufactured one at 200k miles
*- I had rust (only rust I know of) under passenger seat from an old ac condenser leak, took out entire front passenger pan and welded in a replacement. No more rust.
*- Tune up (plugs and wires)
*- Replaced summer wheels with black painted MJ wheels
*- Mostly new Cooper AT tires 2 years old (Cooper Discoverer AT3 235/75R15)
*- AC rebuild about 4 years ago
*- Shocks updated
*- Thermostat housing replaced
*- Valve cover gaskets replaced
*- Full synthetic oil all the time
*- Fully repainted when it was showing signs of wear (about 3 years ago maybe)
*- Replaced radiator
*- Steering components had some updates and replacements over the past years due to general wear

Modernizing and upgrades:
*- Yellow Top battery
*- Factory skid plates for gas tank and front end added. Never found a factory transfer case plate
*- 4 hole bosch injector
*- K&N air filter
*- Beefier battery and starter cables
*- Mirror with dash cam, rear cam, and backup camera with monitor*built into the mirror (not high quality, but it works well)
*- Dual din touchscreen Alpine iLX W650 radio with Android Auto / Apple Carplay / Bluetooth (great for navigation and sound quality)
*- Ram cellphone mount and USB-A passthrough (to plug cell phone in to radio and charge it) on shifter plate. Great on the trail and easy access on the road
*- Four aftermarket 6.5" speakers (Pioneer, I think)
*- JL 10" sub flush mounted in rear compartment
*- Subwoofer amp class D under the passenger seat
*- Remote start and keyless entry
*- Replaced the center console bracket with a steel replica ... no more wobble and far more secure
*- H4 headlight upgrade with full relay isolation, far brighter (like modern headlights and better than the sealed beam lights)
*- Locking lugnut*set from discount tire
*- Rear overhead latch on passenger side for kid carseats (factory installed recall issue from early 2000's)
*- Tow bar and tow electric

*- 5 wheels and winter tires 1 year old (Blizzak 235/70R16) on original Jeep wheels
*- Spare rear seat back and headrests and rear seat back from a ZJ. The goal was to add headrests to the XJ with some simple cutting and welding of the brackets, but I didn't get to it
