Yo kidrock, sup dogg? Lol. I may have found a 95 auto 102k two tops and 2 sets doors that he would trade for my xj. Long as the kid don't change his mind by Thursday. I will be getting a trailer and hauling mine down 2 hours one way to Ohio, and hoping he doesn't stand me up.
So I've heard! TRUST me. I know how anxious you are to get in a wrangler. But it WILL pay off to find the right one. Don't rush into anything. I STRONGLY suggest a 4.0 litre if it's a daily driver. And even though it is a jeep. 100k miles is alot. XJ's are nice and becoming more and more rare. Try to trade up. 2 months searching will pay off over 4 years of repairs or changing things on the new jeep you don't like. I waited from July to October last year to plant myself in the right jeep for me. Test drives and accurate vehicle history are a must.
It will go. Getting to that speed some people have problems with. I don't know to much about the 2.5 except that the 4.0 has more oomf and tends to be more durable. Someone might chime in with better info.
