I've got this truck and nothing to use it for. Ended up getting a job where I punch a clock and they supply all the tools and transportation. (preventative maintenence tech at large retirement community). It's got 60k on rebuilt 5.7 vortec. New tires, tow package, nice body, clean interior, runs like a champ. Email or call 719-205-5455 for pics. Or jonathanlavezzo@gmail.com. Want to get back into another XJ. Truck blue books at $4600.

I'm really starting to regret getting rid of the 99' Xj. It was mostly due to the damn death wobble issue. Thought I wanted another yj and traded, then thought I needed a truck and now I'm stuck with this gas guzzler. FML.

DutchVDub
March 30th, 2010, 21:17
Gas guzzler? My 2000 Silverado gets the same mileage as my stock 99 XJ did. Granted the 5.3 is a more powerful and efficient motor than the 5.7 Vortex was, but its the same 4spd auto and basically the same truck. And my 16mpg avg is a hell of a lot better than that 92 XJ was getting with stock gears and 32's. 1996 was a damn good year for a silverado too, it had the more square body but the same updatedf interior my 2000 has. I really like those years of Chevy truck. I was looking at a 96 3500 w/ 6.5TD at one point. It was a nice truck but I went with a newer 1/2ton for the same price.

I still can't believe you got rid of a Jeep because a little budget boost gave you death wobble. You've been around on these boards long enough and owned enough variously modified Jeeps by now that I would have had more faith in your ability to overcome such a minor issue.

I hope you get a good deal on another XJ and maybe stick with it this time. You're starting to catch up to me on vehicles per year. I'm at over 2 but the number is starting to fall. I have eventually realised the hard way the constantly replating and insuring new cars is not cheap. And lately its become even more pricey.

Goodluck in your hunt.

New plan. Karen got 5k back on her tax returns and wants a new ride... So she's gonna finance a newer grand Cherokee, I'm taking over her payments on the Xj, and selling the truck for 3800-4200, then using that money for new tires, more lift, and some other goodies! It's an 01' Xj with 130k, ready to be built. She still owes 4k on it, and it's worth maybe 4200, so it would be pointless to trade it in. Win, win situation.

Personally I hate buying vehicles that aren't stock. Sure you can save a lot of money in parts/mods, but you are also trusting somebody elses half-arsed work. At least I know that if I do the work myself than it was done how I want it. To me that is worth the extra money. Of course I'm a professional mechanic so that has a lot to do with it. Not having tools or know-how the advantages of an already modified rig can definately out weigh the headache of fixing somebody elses work.

1983 VW Caddy (Rabbit pick-up)
1984 VW Rabbit GTI (x2)
1986 VW Scirocco 16V

1988 Chevrolet Suburban 2500 Scottsdale
1998 Chevrolet S-10
2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1986 Suzuki Samurai
1987 Suzuki Samurai

1987 Jeep Comanche
1992 Jeep Cherokee Laredo
1992 Jeep Wrangler YJ
1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport
2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport


So 21 cars since I was 17yrs old. Thats 1.8 cars per year, except I've spent 3 of those years either deployed or in basic training and unable to own or disown a car. So that means until I turn 27 out of the 9 yrs since I bought my first car I've only been able to go through cars for 6yrs. So I am at 3.5cars per year. After my birthday it drops down to 3 per year. Thats not including any cars that I never titled or plated except the Comanche, I haven't plated that one yet. Well, not this time. Its the second time I've owned it. And actually my 78 Rabbit was bought, sold, bought back, sold again, bought back again, and so forth a few times before eventually going the way of the grave.

Damn, Jeep is starting to catch up to VW. Time to go buy another VW. :D

I really want either a MKI Scirocco or a MKI Rabbit Diesel. I like the aircooled stuff enough, but I am an early watercooled guy. To me the best thing about the aircooled cars was they gave VW the money to make good cars, i.e. the MKI-MKII chassis cars.

Well, xj guy bailed and sold it this evening... But I have some not so good news for you xj guys... Looks like I'm "surfTJsnow" again. Talked to a guy last night that had a 99' TJ 4.0 with hard top and full hard doors with only 100k. Said he might be interested in a trade due to him going into business for himself and needing a truck. I didn't think much of it due to the fact that the silverado had 218k on it and was worth at least 3 grand less than his TJ. Well, he wad persistent so I met him in Denver tonight and within 15 mins I had his title in my hands.

Started off with a 2600 dollar xj 3 months ago, now I have a 7k dollar TJ. You really can't blame me. It's got new 31's, stock suspension, hard top, full steel doors with roll up windows, and low miles. Engine runs like a top. I can't lie, I'm excited to build this thing up.

Yes, the TJ was fun for a while, but for a family on a budget, it is definately not practical. :twak:


Now, 10 years later, here i am with a beautiful TJ... Now i just wonder.... why now?! why when I just had a kid? why cant I just have my damn wrangler?! why do my fiances parents, my parents, and just about everyone i know tell me I would be a HORRIBLE parent if i drove my new born child around in a TJ?


Why do I want another XJ? I loved my old one, It was comfy, safe, and reliable, and warm. I also hate driving my truck for any reason other than WORK. This is why I would like both of my vehicles to be "baby seat friendly".


Bets on how long THIS TJ lasts? :D

216k miles on the body though!?

I mean don't get me wrong, I would have done that Deal in a Heartbeat too but does that mean everything but the engine has that many miles? and how can he prove that the engine was swapped?

SurfXJSnow
April 2nd, 2010, 04:49
I've got documentation on the new engine and trans. The guy who this guy bought it from blew it and had a new one replaced by a stealership. Also, the whole front ends been replaced, steering, shocks, tie rods, and I'm guessing drive train. Odomoters are never a good estimate on the condition of a jeep in my mind, especially when half the jeeps been replaced.

And Troy, I no longer have a job that requires me to need a truck which had alot to do with those previous posts of mine. This jeep is also a hard top with hard doors, which means alot to the wifey. My old tj had soft doors and a beat to he'll soft top that flapped like crazy. This tj is quiet, has a hard roof and roll bars in case of an accident, I see no difference between a hard top/hard door tj and an Xj when it comes to safety, but again, I'll leave it up to you to prove me wrong. ;)

this things staying around for a while. It's everything good about a wrangler, minus the loud soft top and zip up windows. But if the right Xj came along, I have no idea what I'd do, prob just depends on one of my many personalities at the given time. :).

Oh leave the kid alone, he just suffers from the same vehicle ADD most of us suffer from or have suffered from. I'm sure this TJ will turn out great for him and if not then he can just sell it off and dump money into something else like many of us have done numerous times.

That being said, you should swap in a YJ front-end so as to help hide the fact you've got a Toy Jeep designed specifically for cheerleaders. :D
