I saw in your intro post you might be selling the XJ. Would you want to trade for a 99 Dodge Ram 5.9 Litre Club Cab?

Club cab=regular cab, right? I've already got an 01 Ram regular cab, but I would kinda like extended cab. If I'm mistaken and club cab is extended, let's hear some more info....condition, color, mileage, any mods, etc. Pretty much anything you can tell me. I wouldn't get your hopes up just yet, but I will definitely entertain the idea. If it's regular cab, no thanks, already got one.

Is this Christian? Yep, that's the waterfall on Boyscout back in Oct 04. I really wish I would've had the Jeep up at school to run it back in the fall.....that trail got awesome with all the washouts and off camber stuff. That's my favorite kind of wheelin...flexy, technical stuff, not all the mud crap. We ran that trail in the spring a couple years ago. One of the guys was wearing waders and went to see how deep the hole by the cabin was.....it came to the top of his stomach, and he's like 6'1". Needless to say, we went around. The biggest rig with us was on 31s with only a rear locker(both Stevie and myself)

I had the Jeep listed on a while back, but never actively tried to sell it.

The crawler I've actually been slowly building while I'm downstate on co-op.....in the little free time I've had.

Extended cab would be nice, but that's quite a bit more miles than I'd want. Thanks for the offer anyway

I'd really like to get $7500, but I suppose that depends on interest. I've gotta put a new steering box in it and add a leaf to the super flexy rear packs, then I'll probably put some actual effort into trying to sell it. As fun as it could be to keep, I'd be better off with the money at this point.

We felt like goin for some winter fun after the first decent snowfall up in da UP. I've wheeled there a ton of times, knew there was a rut there(I've driven through it plenty of times in the Jeep), but it just swallowed the truck. I purposely went slow so I didn't mess anything up, and I'm damn glad I did. Nothing a tow strap couldn't fix.

I'm still toying with the idea of the Ram trade if you're seriously interested. I would rather just plain sell the Jeep than trade it and then sell something else, but it's a possibility. More info on the Ram would help. Is it 4WD? What's been replaced on it? Is the tranny still all original? How long have you had it? The more info the better, and pics would help.

Nice vehicles. Do you have any rubbing issues with the 35's on the Ram? Supposedly you can fit 35's with the Off-Road package but they will rub a bit.

Alright, thanks for lettin' me know. When my tires are up on my Ram, I'm probably going to go with 33"-34". It doesn't get wheeled, just a DD/tow rig, but the damn wheel wells are just so freakin' huge!

Yep that's the same situation I'm in....plus I just like to have something different than everyone else on the road. Some appearance mods will be coming soon. The current 35s I have aren't gonna last long cuz they're so soft, so I'm trying to decide what to get next. The 35s aren't bad with 4.10 gears, but they're not as good as they could be either. At this point it's between 35x12.5 BFG MTs, 35x12.5 Toyo MTs, 35x12.5 Cooper Discoverer STTs(the new ones), or 305/70R17 MT/Rs. The BFGs are the cheapest, but the Coopers will probably be cheaper when they finally get released in that size, and they look like they'll be excellent tires. Pretty similar to the Toyo's actually. The MT/Rs measure about 34", which would be a nice middle ground if I decide not to go with 35s again. I like Nitto Mud Grapplers too, but they're like $290 a tire and I've heard they wear fast.
