I've got to get busy and do a few cosmetic fixes, like faded bumpers, paint on the roof, and clean the inside real good. It will then be close to the condition the yj was.
I'm thinking I'll just take the side moldings off. It does ride better for a dd than the yj did.
And.... It's still a JEEP.

Good luck with the new jeep.

|amerijeep||Hey D2BS, was this the clean looking Rio Grande you are getting rid of?|
|02-16-2009 02:26 PM|
The deal is done on the XJ.
Talked him down to $3900. It helped when I mentioned him saying something about his girlfriend getting too fat to get in and out of the lifted Cherokee easily!!!
I'll sign over the YJ to it's new owner on Wednesday.
P.S. I found out the rear diff is a Chrysler 8.25 rather than the d35 on the cherokee.

PM me if interested.

Good to hear from you, old friend.
Thanks for the wishes.
If they let me, I'll still hang out here from time to time.
Hopefully, more often than YOU!!!

Hey D2BS. Nice XJ.
I think the benefits of running aluminum wheels outweighs the rugged good looks of steel wheels. The aluminum is lighter and stronger. I've smahed quite a few of the steel wheels, but the oe aluminum live on.
Good luck, my friend.

|AzTJ||You are gonna like the AW4 auto tranny a lot! Super strong, takes all kinds of abuse and is a dream on the highway.|
|02-14-2009 11:12 PM|
Hey I would be a buyer for the old wheels!
|02-13-2009 07:30 PM|
Yes, yes it would.
I like all black.
|02-13-2009 07:24 PM|
|Dare2BSquare||Well, if I want to replace them with black steelies that should be enough. I like the look of them, but I think black on black would look good.|

Info from Jeep.....
Gambler* optional TJ wheel
* 15x8 aluminum
* 5 on 4.5" bolt pattern
* Backspacing = 5.25"
* Optional wheel with 30" tire package
* Offset = +19 mm
Here is a picture of the last ones I had and sold.....
Dont expect more than $150 /$200 for them. I had mint ones for sale for a year and only got like $160 or so. It was sad. Hopefully you can get more out of them They are worth it.
|02-13-2009 07:05 PM|
I still think I may try to sell them and get some evil black steelies.
|02-13-2009 06:43 PM|

NICE! should do you good if you decide on it.
The wheels are factory jeep "gambler" wheels. Specs...15x8 with 5.25'' bs.
and keep a eye on the control arm bushings. skyjackers had a little issue with them for a time. Said to be fixed.
Let us know what you do dare. XJ's are great rigs.
|02-13-2009 06:41 PM|
I doubt that it will stay the same!!!
|02-13-2009 06:35 PM|
|4point||Thats a real nice looking XJ. Are going to mod it further? or leave it as is.|
|02-13-2009 06:21 PM|
|jgano23||nice xj. and at least you will still be square.|

Replacing the YJ
Well, prospects look pretty good for this XJ to replace my YJ.
Here are the specifics....
1999 Cherokee Sport
4 speed auto
4" Skyjacker lift
Renegade Aluminum wheels
Pw, Pdl, Pmirrors
135k on the odo
I've got it for the weekend, and will decide Monday if this is my new ride.
I'm thinkin selling those Renegades and going with black steelies.
STILL SQUARE, AND GETTING THERE!!!
What do you think???
