Default ::SOLD:: 2wd 1998 XJ - FIRST $500 TAKES IT

I bought this a year or so ago thinking that it would make a good DD if I put some work into it. It is still sitting, and would still make a good DD if somebody put some work into it.

Here's the details:

- 98 XJ 4.0 4 door / AW4
- 138k miles
- Crank windows / manual locks
- Power mirrors
- Cruise (works)
- A/C (leaks, but works when charged)
- Grey interior (a bit dirty, but in decent shape and all there. No noteworthy rips or holes. It should clean up nice.)
- Minimal rust in the typical XJ places. Solid floors and rockers. Certainly not a rust bucket.

It starts right up and runs well until it warms up. It runs lean as soon as it goes into closed loop. I'm guessing it probably needs an O2 sensor.

I bought this from a guy on CL who thought it needed a transmission because it wouldn't shift out of first gear. I put a TPS on it and drove it home. The trans shifts nice and firm, just like it should. The seller claims to have put a head on it, which I would guess is accurate since it is a lot shinier than the block. He also claims to have replaced the heater core, which I would also guess is accurate because the dash was half taken apart when I bought it. The heat is nice and hot, but the temp control is a bit sticky (might need a new cable?).

The passenger side doors and rear bumper have significant dents, as seen in the picture. There is also a broken eye on the passenger side leaf spring. I have a set of good take offs that will come with it. I also spotted what looks like some repair work to the block on the driver's side. It isn't leaking anything and runs well, but it is worth mentioning.

The tires are mismatched rollers and will need to be replaced.

This is definitely a project, but it really wouldn't take all that much to make it a good DD. I'm not interested in parting it out because I simply don't have the space, but there's probably money to be made on it in that scenario as well. 2wd front axles are rare...

Thanks,
Tom

Bump - New price is not negotiable. Want it gone this weekend. Might do a partial trade for good condition 31x10.50's on 5x4.5 wheels or an air compressor + tools but really would rather have cash.

Told me he had a guy coming to check it out yesterday and would let me know if he did not buy it. I am guessing it is gone.
