Are there XJs in your neighborhood?

As it says.

In my neighborhood, and of course I can’t see inside garages or what people have driven away for the day, when I am out walking the dog I don’t see any XJs. A WJ at the end of my street, some four-door wranglers, a couple new Grands (WK idk) even a matched pair of Patriots with sequential license plates.

But no XJs that I see except for my own. So, are they in your neighborhood?

Re: Are there XJs in your neighborhood?

House a block away from me has one in the back yard. Another half block away there was one that came to visit fairly regularly (only ever saw it parked at the curb, mid-day--so I assume it didn't live there).

I see plenty of them on the road, but not nearly as many as JKUs and JLs.

Re: Are there XJs in your neighborhood?

A couple. There’s a modified one that I see driving down the street regularly, haven’t figured out where they live yet.

A nice stock 91 or so limited that someone is keeping as a car for their kid. Would be a nice resto project

White 2 door 2wd SE

Black 4 door 2wd. Grill is removed and replaced with expanded metal

Re: Are there XJs in your neighborhood?

I saw some around the neighborhood but I don't know who the owners are since it is a couple of blocks away from my house.

Re: Are there XJs in your neighborhood?

There's a 2-dr Laredo package up the street from me. Fully stock and a slightly different shade of maroon than my 92, but very similar to what mine looked stock (save for the extra doors).

Security force at work has a 2K, but it's parked (they have two Explorers they're using now), and just before bugging out for the holidays I spotted a lifted 97+ in the parking lot on my way out one night. Used to be a stock red early model at work as well, but haven't seen it in a while so the owner may be doing the "work from home" thing.

I even see one here and there on the roads still, but that's becoming a bit less frequent...

Re: Are there XJs in your neighborhood?

Neighbor has one across the street from me, seems to have been sitting for a long time. The hitch has rusted and fallen off it has been sitting so long. It does have a factory external spare tire holder on it and looks to be a 97 due to the blue SPORT decals on the fenders.

Re: Are there XJs in your neighborhood?

I found one when I was passing through the next neighborhood up, I think it was a lifted 97+. Also there is a lifted 97+ near the 7-11 on Jefferson. Not many just driving around.

Re: Are there XJs in your neighborhood?

A bunch (10+) lifted XJ's in my neighborhood. Tried talking to a few of them, but they are a lot more interested in talking about what beer to drink on the trail than Naxja.

Re: Are there XJs in your neighborhood?

On my dead end street we have 2 ZJs, 2 XKs, and one XJ. All of them belong to me except one of the XKs.
