Re: new member in houston area

Either that isn't 5" of lift, or those aren't 31" tires. LOL I wouldn't necessarily agree with not buying a built cherokee. It is all in what you want. Most of the time you can buy a built cherokee for a lot less than what you can build one for. It is good to build it up yourself, and learn about your vehicle, and driving skills as you progress, but we all know that when you mod a vehicle you usually lose a ton of cash when you sell it due to not getting the full value of your mods. This means you can buy a used cherokee with thousands of dollars worth of mods for sometimes $.25-$.50 on the dollar as far as the mods are concerned.

Hell I'd be damned lucky to get $5k out of mine, and I know it has a lot more than that into it (even with me doing 99% of the work).

Re: new member in houston area

Well knowing a little more about that rig... I would say take it. MAINLY because it will be helping out a member get back on his feet. That rig belongs to rjstiles on here. The radiator was replaced by magimerlin and rms692 (I think I got the number right.) He had a bad accident, totaled his van, has a LARGE family to tote around and need the money to get another van.

I mean it looks like a clean rig. If you do get ahold of him, I would start at $3,500... maybe less. But I am cheap so...
I agree. Mine has a 3.5" lift with 31's and sits about the same. $3500 seems high to me. Are they really getting that kind of price? If so then I might consider parting with mine.

Re: new member in houston area

Well the price that guy is asking is $4,000... Yes I think even $3,500 is too high, but like I said... I am cheap.

and the owner is a great guy. Just had a bit of bad luck with his accident but hasn't slowed him down that I could see....And yes rms692 and I did replace the radiator not to long ago. The Jeep runs really well and is very clean.

Re: new member in houston area

Hey wildcat... I saw a few XJs for sale over between Riverside and Trinity, TX. About an hour or so from Spring. I was in the ambulance so I couldn't stop to look at them.
