Re: Looking at XJ's

That's not bad dude...I sold my 98' for that a few months ago. It had the same mileage. Mine had some aftermarket goodies on it, but nothing crazy.

Nice ride! I loved mine.

selec-trac if you can find it
If you're going to just drive it, I agree.

I am a HUGE fan of the XJ. Upon returning to the states, it's my 1st choice for a vehicle(if I go Jeep). I've been looking for years in anticipation for my return. My educated opinion is XJ owners think they're dipped in gold! lol

Nice! $5500 is not bad(for an XJ) but above average for a 2001 car.

Re: Looking at XJ's

Great find! I don't know which XJs got the Chrysler 8 1/4" rear axle but it would be the cherry on top if yours did.

I know you prob don't want to drop to much cash on it, being an extra family vehicle, but these are real cheap to lift an inch or two. Some more aggressive rubber when those tires wear out would be pretty sweet!

Mine does... does it matter? (not a Jeep guy...) I think it has them both ends...

I have a ZG (a ZJ for export, made in Graz, Austria) its a RHD 97 Limited with I6, select-trac, leather, heated seats/mirrors, climate air, electric everything... nice stereo. Apart from the RHD it seems to be identical to the ZJ.

I was initially concerned about buying American - I live in the dead centre of SE Asia on Borneo. We don't get too many of your kind round here, boy!

But... it is all metric, instruments, computer, bolts and such, which helped to sell it (I am a metric kinda guy)... and it had a genuine 2-owner 118,000km on it when I bought it (under 75k miles). That was about 6 months ago... I have put about 4,000km on it since then. The last owner was a Lufthansa airframe engineer and he has kept it in great condition - spent about S$4500 on maintenance and parts (bushes, suspension, tyres, brakes, driveline etc.) so I have nothing to spend.

It was much more expensive than you would pay, I'm sure - I paid S$10,500 which works out to US$8400

So far, it has been great - all problems (bar one!) have been down to dirty electrical connectors - pull, squirt, clean, lube, connect - fixed! That is endemic here in the humid, steamy jungle.

Even with the price, I am really happy with it - as a comparison, a similar priced 4x4 would get you an old Suzuki Grand Vitara 1.6 or 2.0D, a 1989-93 or similar Land Cruiser Prado, a 1990-1993 Patrol, a 1995-976 Isuzu. Generally in a poor state of repair with between 250,000 and 350,000km. No leather, no climate (basic AC), diesel, none of the awesome comfort and stuff the LTD has. If you want similar features and leather, etc. you need to be spending about S$45k...

Luckily, no-one wanted the Jeep because it is not Asian and they don't know their arse from their elbow. I'm sure I will have similar issues when I come to sell it, but that may be some way down the track. Parts are easy from Europe or Aussie, there's a local stealer less than 20 miles away who can do basics and I have a tame little Indian bloke that's looked after it since it ran out of dealer warranty.

So far we haven't done much more than hit a few back roads with it, but our back roads can get a bit.... non-existent

We are taking it bush in August - across the Sabah/Indonesia border from West to East then right up around the top and back to the Brunei/Sabah border - about 5,000km. I am fitting MT tyres - not compulsory, but we don't want to find some track that looks worthwhile and not be able to get there with ATs. Tyres are another expensive item, we are looking at GT Radials for US$150/per. Still, cheap if it saves us a tow

A bit more 'cultured' outback - still got a sealed road and someone mowed the grass...


Her indoors... probably telling me to do something
