Re: new member in houston area

Hey that could be our meet and great... get together and go XJ shopping for wildcat. Man I would feel sorry for the owners of the XJ trying to sell it if 4 or 5 guys show up and start picking it apart.

Re: new member in houston area

250K miles... depends on if the fluids were changed when they needed to be.. things like that. As for the TC... mine sat up for almost half its life (my XJ is 24 y/o) and no problems with the TC. But again was the fluid changed on it, makes big diffrence.

im looking for a rec vehicle that can go offroad, get me and the kids and our junk to the deer lease, haul some lumber, and other junk once in a while and just be a back up vehicle when the corolla needs a break. a 2003 corolla is my daily driver. i have a 95 ranger now. we have outgrown it, the kids are too big and we are packed in like sardines. that will be sold once the xj is sitting in the driveway.

i dont need a massive rock crawler. mostly i want to go cheap so i can work on it i my spare time, but if i can pick up one already sorta built for not too much dough then that is good too. i'd like to spend no more than 2k, but i'm willing to go @ 4k if it is near exactly what i want.

even though about making a road trip for this:

Re: new member in houston area

1016332 is sold but i liked the roll cage in it. my xj has allmost 300000 on it it was hardly in 4x4 before i got it and never offroad. i drive mine everyday the only thing i have done to mine is a rear locker but its going to get lifted and some tires soon. are you going to try to make rom if you get it soon?

Re: new member in houston area

My jeep has 235k miles on it. It was a park ranger XJ before I got it. When I bought it, it had a little under 200K, so lets just say the last 35k miles have been hard miles. These motors will go for a long long time if serviced regularly, and taken care of. I wouldn't let one around 200k scare you off...... once it gets 250k and above I would only look at it, if it was DIRT cheap or in immaculate condition.

Good friend of mine daily drives an 89 XJ with 325k, and has a 30 mile each way commute to work everyday.
