    hello xj owners, sorry for the late introduction. bluedragon436 sent me the link to this forum to check out. im mostly on the cherokee forum but so far i can tell this is more of friendly forum not so much bashing. anyway this my 3rd xj and it's addicting. i been trying to get out of the jeep world but for some unknown reason i end up buy another just as soon as i sold it. my first was a 2001 limited with leather seats and all the good stuff and a dana turdy 35 later was swap to 8.25. 4.56 regear'ed. 6.5 lifted with 33". took to trails think 5 fives before i sold. told myself im done with jeep didn't last long i end up picking up a '92 laredo. was planning to use for dd but every time i replaced broken/missing parts po damaged make me wanted to keep it. got too much rust on the floor board and rockers so i sold the '92 before i dump more money into. again i said to myself ok no more jeep. im just going to get a honda accord and call a day. that didn't last long. i end up with picking up a '98 classic (current dd) off a spoil yuppie from west suburb chicago. the kid pretty much didn't took care of it. dog hair all over the seats (gross). was lightly damaged on front end but i knew it's easy fix. jeep had 119k miles at the time i offer him 1k he took it. the rest was history. sorry for the long introduction, i'll post pics later of before and after on the '98.

    Nothing wrong with a good deal on a flip like that... especially to give you more to put towards a new XJ build!! Wish I had been able to flip the 90 I have so that I could use the extra money made towards the 97's build..

    thanks guys. i might sell the '98. for some reason i like to find a almost or minium rust '92 briarwood probably going to be hard. if that's impossible i'll settle for a '96. i kinda like the older square body style. on top of that no emission test for vehicles from '96 and older here in chicago.
