Would you consider picking up another XJ?

I've currently got a 97 4.0 with 156k. I'm toying with the idea of picking up either a TJ or another XJ with lower miles (leaning more towards another XJ). I'm happy with mine, so i'd definately be hanging onto it. Just wanted to see what you guys thought.

John

p.s. I originally picked my XJ up for a beater, that's why i didn't worry too much about the high mileage (i had a newer car). I've since gotten rid of the car and kept this for a daily driver.

This is the one i found. A 2001 with 55k miles.

Before I'd pick ip another XJ I would think about a membership. Oh wait done. Yeah I've thought about it. Get a later, lower mileage model and swap out the axles and lift. Hmmm...

Re: Would you consider picking up another XJ?

Either an XJ or TJ would be a good choice, however if you look at TJ's look at 'unlimiteds', it's longer and more room inside. We have 3 in the family now, the YJ needs a new frame, we got one, prepped it, cleaned it, painted it and are getting it ready for a weekend swap over. It would be much easier if the rusted frame YJ did not have 44's abnd the *new* frame 30/35 so we have to do that part too...and of course it's a good time to throw those OME springs on as well as the 1" body lift....

After this current one is done (or close enough to amuse me) I am done with Jeeps.

Re: Would you consider picking up another XJ?

If I found one in really good shape and with low miles and for a good price, yes.

Re: Would you consider picking up another XJ?

I did the membership thing . I'm going to have to give it some thought. I've found a few that are pretty reasonable and are built already. I'd get a kick out of doing the work myself...but i'll never have thousands lying around that i'll be willing to spend on lift kits and accessories.

TJ's and YJ's are to me easier to work on and modify and there is alot bigger selection in aftermarket parts. You being where you are almost all vehicles are going to be in better shape than any up this way in the NE...road salt is one stealthy bitch...
