Default 2000XJ FS $xxxx New Mopar engine. NVRMND. keeping it

Keeping it. Lock thread please







I took a new job last year with an hour long commute. Its looking like I need a gas sipper so I am selling my Jeep. Not happy about it but here goes:

This thing has most of the stuff done that you would do to it anyway.


Over view:
2000XJ Auto
166k on body
6000 miles on fresh remanufactured Mopar crate motor
owned by an obsessive compulsive 45 year old car-guy.

Bad stuff:
-Door lip rust and a dent in the pass side lower.
-Signal doesn't auto "click off" when turning left. Needs a new switch.
-Steering has a little wander. I had it aligned before the lift but it probably needs another one.
-Needs brake lines extendd if your ever gonna wheel it
-No AC (feel free to make OBA with the parts I kept)

Good stuff:
-never been off-road (it's a DD mallcrawler)
-3" lift
Rough country coils
S-10 main leaf bastardpack
-new Moog trackbar
-20k on tires and new D holes
-ZJ rear head rests added
-Aftermarket Gauges
-roof basket
-receiver hitch
-factorty rear skid
-new trans mount
-new U joints except double cardans
-new CV joints
-new Timken wheel hubs
-JK shocks 1 yr pld
-BPEs
-POR 15d underneath
-Alpine iPod
-OMIX SYE
-all new brakes
-Rear bumper area prepped for a tire carrier bumper
-no rocker rust
-new 970 amp battery
-KC daylighters
-Pilot under bumper fogs
-Recovery point in front
-NON LEAKING power sunroof
-Roof rack
-factory tint
-cruise control
-alarm/power door locks (all work)
-power windows (all work)
-new belt
-new radiator
-new T stat
-new fanclutch
-rebuilt alternator
-new waterpump
-fresh Mopar 4.0 engine

The story on the engine:
My original mill had some lifter clatter that I ignored for 15k miles.
I drove to see my dad in Traverse City twice a year from Toledo.
Thing ran like a champ but after replacing a leaky radiator I started
having cooling issues.

I decided to sell the Jeep to a buddy. He ended up scoring a nice ZJ instead.
When he did he called me up and asked if I wanted the 4.0 crate motor he
was saving for an XJ purchase. He works a at a dealership and he bought it
in 2010 when the dealer mistakenly ordered it for a blown up Grand Cherokee.
He let me look inside with the borescope and even helped with the install.
He's been a Jeep mechanic for 10 years. Ive swapped many Ford engines so
between us I feel great about this install. The engine timing and tune were
set with a Mopar Scan tool. I have put 6000 reliable miles on this thing with 0 problems.

Its been on the 620 mile round trip to Traverse Citry 3x since the swap.

On to the pics:



Day I got it:


Doors are POR 15'd now from the inside.




headrests- welded in ZJ brackets



tasteful dash mod (note guage install)




XJ had a lot of salt spray stains and chips on my flares.
I bedliner'd em.





Also did teh scratched up bumper.

I do read on here but do not log in a lot.
I'll probably miss any PMs so just text me.

Thanks for looking!
Phil

A few phone pics of the inside. Its dirty now. My street is a muddy mess due to new gaslines being installed













door ding I mentioned. I'd just find another blue door. They made a billion blue Cherokees. I passed on a couple at Cherry Picked this summer that I should have grabbed. Its not too bad and that rust spot is the worst spot on the whole vehicle. Floors are solid



the pass door



inside



Drivers side




Nothing to hide, its a 12 year old Jeep with a new engine and a ton of maintenance already done.

I know 5k is kinda steep but I'd like to recoup a little of the engine expense. Plus all of the crap that usually breaks on these has been replaced or is still in great shape.

bump
