Default 1998 xj

welp, i'm buying another one to replace this one out in california.this is mandas jeep and here is what it is

98 xj
-4.0 i replaced about 3 years ago with one with 50,000 from 007bond. i verified miles and heard it run before i left. when it was installed anything that was bad was replaced mounts, water pump, exhaust manifold, ect ect. the thing sits more than it is driven and we may of at most put 15,000 on it since. runs with out issue and always had.
-aw4 when i got this jeep about 4 years ago the front pump leaked and i had the trans looked at and front pump replaced
-231 that was replace last feb with a low milage unit.
-hp 30 3:55 gears new axle joints feb of last year, steering componets and balljoints replaced around the time of the motor,lunch box locker
-8.25 3:55 lincoln locked

it has its issues mostly from sitting and some from last years trip. i havent driven it since last fall on the road. issues are as follows


-needs a window regulator which i have
- has dents, rust,and bruises. the jeep was set on its side last year but nothing hard
- needs the right front shocks and a drag link to drive everyday(starting to have a wobble about 70)
.-tail light is cracked but i have one
-needs to be cleaned up from sitting- brought it home and it has been sitting
-4.5 in rough country lift with lowers and 2in spacers and rear bastard pack with 1in block. i have a set of brand new 8.5 coils and some other misc stuff for the lift that will go with it

it is easier for you to call me honestly as i am very busy with work. its a good jeep but i simply dont have the time to work on it. anyone that has seen it off road knows it goes very well for what it is, i have driven it all over michigan and even to niagra falls. it sucks to sell it but the new one is rust free and a better start for me for the project in mind with my current time restaints. it has a set of 35x12.50 mtrs on it now that i bought new last year that i plan on keeping but for 2400 ill leave them on it.
if i get time ill mess with some of the little crap.

bushwachers are gone**
$2000 obo or 2400 with the mtrs
ill get some current pics when im outside let me know if you interested but these will give you the idea. its been a good jeep but i have never not taken it anywhere. rockers are bad, pass quarter is banged up but could be fixed i guess. basically a trail jeep that i wouldnt hesitate to drive anywhere after repairs are made. ive been completely honest about this thing i dont want to be misleading what so ever. feel free with questions

tell me if i am out of line there is much more im not remembering.

Interested in current pics. Whole shots, and the bad rockers/quarter panel. Interior as well.

Do you have paperwork from the replacement motor?
