    Default Picked Up My First XJ

    Hello!, bought this XJ a little over a month ago its a Black 99 Sport, 4.0L, AW4, NP242, D30, C8.25 with 205k on the clock

    I was able to talk the seller down a bit cuz it was running pretty poor when I test drove it. Turned out to be a combination of a cracked exhaust manifold and a bad o2 sensor. Now it purrs like a kitten.

    oil pressure sensor
    adjust T case linkage
    195F hi flow thermostat
    thermostat housing and coolant temp sensor
    water pump and hard pipe off the water pump
    wiring to 3rd brake light was broke from bending when the hatch opens

    And due to some surface rust I ended up spraying the roof

    And now Im in the middle of installing a RC 4.5 X-series short arm lift kit


    This is my second Jeep, I had a 2002 TJ about 10 years ago and man does it feel good to be behind the wheel of a Jeep again. Cant wait to get this xj rollin on a set of 32's.

    Thank you sir, and yes a little lift goes a long way for some off road capability.

    Tires showed up early!
