View Full Version : Kijiji score! NEW PICS

08-30-2011, 03:18 PM
Was lookin around for a 4 door XJ for the winter time. Havin a baby in late October, and my 2 door sucks to get a car seat into (We've tried with a friend's baby) I also don't want to drive my 2 door in the winter anymore. I happened upon this:


1997 XJ Sport 4 door. 4.0/AW4/NP242. Runs good, tranny works great, goes in and out of 4x4 fine. All the power windows and locks work too, also has the infinity 6 speaker stereo with the amp under the seat. Seller bought it to fix up for their daughter, but she lost interest and wanted a car. $500 and $25 in gas later, it sits in my driveway.

Good deal? :p

good score that yellow top come with it?

id say so! i got my jeep for 600 bucks off some kid in langley who didnt know squat about vehicles. 4x4 works great, 5spd tranny's awesome and motor runs good too! nice steal!

Haha no, that's mine that I took with me just in case. This jeep came with an almost new Interstate 78 series dual terminal battery. It's too big, but the yellow top fits in there very nicely :)

$500? Wow! I'm a yota guy, but I would buy that for sure and build it up for so cheap! What a find man, good job

I think about all I'm gonna do is some front spacers to level it out (has 5 leaf packs in the rear and sits like a hot rod) and some 235/75/15's.
Also, with a deal like this there is always a catch. It's an Alberta Jeep, but has tons of new parts and just needs brakes and a windshield to pass :)

Finally got most of the things done, that were on the list. Put in new front and rear brakes, replaced the Tailgate with another that didn't have rust holes in it! I spent at least an hour removing the crappy old stickers on the outside, and inside on the windows. Stupid kids!
I had some 1.75" spacers from another project layin around and tossed them in. The wheels and 31's were also from another project. I think they look perfect on it! The H4 headlights I got for $20 off another jeeper that sold his and found em later in his basement.
New Pics:
Look Ma, no holes!
Beside my 98 XJ:
And my 98, just for kicks:

it's an 81, no bubble hatch. I'm lookin for $800, but it has to go before the snow flies so I'm a flexible....

That's my Mustang in the garage. This is the Capri here:

oh yeah
