Default '88 XJ 2 door roller

Selling whats left of my beloved '88 XJ. The body is rough, one of the leaf spring pockets are damaged, and lots of the floor is missing. The subframe sills all still appear to be solid, it could probably be repaired, its just time for me to move on. As it sits it is not driveable, the suspension is just there to move it around, although it would drive onto a trailer. 268,000 miles on the body/transmission/transfer case. Unknown mileage on the engine, knocks as its warming up but goes away after its fully warmed up (probably piston slap). Flowmaster on it, sounds decent, '98 XJ booster/master, '99+ intake, later throttle body, EV-6 Neon injectors, '98 power steering pump/box/lines, axles/suspension under it are from a 2001 that had 156,xxx miles on it. Nothing special about the interior, no radio or speakers, headliner and sunvisors are from a later XJ, but it has cutouts for an overhead console.

We'll say $500 or best reasonable offer. I believe if you sold/scrapped every last bit you could probably nearly double your investment, I simply do not have the time or space to do so myself. Or fix it, or tube it and turn it into a juggy.

This is how the truck sat about a month ago, and yes the JCR bumper and tow hooks are gone. I'll get an updated picture as soon as I can.

The passenger side rotted around where its supported by the floor, and collapsed enough to break the weld nut free in the sill. So when I removed the suspension that was on it I basically had to peel what was left of the bracket open to free the leaf spring. Driver's side is a little sketchy but still functional.

Everything is loose, there are no shock absorbers, and currently none of the brakes are hooked up. It was reassembled with the takeoff suspension only enough to have the ability to move it around. This is why it is being sold as a roller.

if it has a 99+ intake, what head does it have? do you know what year the motor is from, or was the intake modified to fit an 87-90 head?

Its an early HO 4.0. 7120 head. IIRC the date stamp on the block was '91, so it was probably out of a '92.

Alright, for those who have inquired about the vehicle I apologize for the lengthy pause it took me for an update on this.

Here is an updated pic of the Jeep as of yesterday, I still have a few odds and ends to remove (rear bumper, front tow hooks, headlights, cb/antenna mount). I drove it to where it sits and then it stalled but I'm pretty sure it ran out of gas.



Make me an offer, I would like this gone before it gets covered with snow.

Near Beech Daly and Joy Road, in Redford. If you'd like to come check it out PM me.

I'll put a couple gallons of gas in it tomorrow and make sure it still runs.
