Well no more XJ, got a TJ (Zach "ZachMan" McNutt)

So I (my dad since I am in Houston) traded my 4th XJ for my 2nd TJ now. I think it was a good trade and besides the TJ needing and SYE/cv shaft and maybe a quick d44 reseal it good to go...well my dad likes the Jeep haha, I just am bored and wanted a change. I figure its so different from my dad's truck he'll enjoy it if something happens to me more so than an XJ:

97 TJ Sport
4.0 / AX-15

d30 with Warn 5 on 5.5 hub kit w/ 30 spline outters w/ 4.10s
d44 with discs and Detroit w/ 4.10s
tube bumper / steps (gotta go eventually)
Incubus Offroad wheels / 33x12.50 Mud Rovers
4" Teraflex with adj. LCAs, RE 3.5" one day....
1 yr. old top
KCs, cb, Pioneer cd player.....
etc...


Trade day:











Good by, she was a great one:

Re: Well no more XJ, got a TJ

That certainly looks like an Alpine cd player.

Other than the fact that I'd love to be able to take the top off I liked the XJ better.

Ha yeah good eye, it is an Alpine cd player.

It was a good trade, we had close to the same amount of after market stuff and he has 77k miles and I had 83k. I was just looking for less window and metal if I ever get to go wheeling more often. I'll miss the hell outta my XJ, best one I owned by far.

Re: Well no more XJ, got a TJ

I've had both as well, and it is kinda a tossup which one I liked better. The TJ had zero interior room, especially for my kids, but I loved being able to drop the top and pull the doors.

If you're happy, that's what matters. Looks like a nice clean TJ, enjoy it!

Re: Well no more XJ, got a TJ

I miss my TJ at times, but during winter in New England the soft top gets old real quick. It's even worse when it's windy. I wouldn't own another TJ without both a hard and soft top.

Or TNT phantom fenders, RE lift, SYE, cv shaft, front aussie, PSC rear knockers, A to Z sliders, Rokmen gas tank skid and front bumper, 1.25" BL and bellyup skid, LOD tire carrier, 4.88s, sport cage, etc... lol lol

I'm in Alabama and single so I have no huge need for the room or a hardtop. I couldn't stand not seeing out the XJ and all the metal, it was either do something with it now or dent her up.

Re: Well no more XJ, got a TJ

that too.


I honestly think that when I finally get around to buying a YJ or TJ that the fenders will be the first to go! I need to find one cheap!

Re: Well no more XJ, got a TJ

ive had a yj, a tj and my xj. i like the longer wheelbase on the trails, but that turning radius of the wranglers is awesome in tight spots.

Re: Well no more XJ, got a TJ

I remember almost getting my hands on that XJ a few years ago. We almost traded my 4 door F-150 and the XJ. That was, is an awesome well put together rig. You can see I finally got back to the XJ.

The TJ looks great. Nice trade, and looks like yourgetting ready to hook it up as you did your XJ (I see a lot of bling stuff is for sale, off of the TJ) If I didn't have a young family, I would prob. have a wrangler too

Keep in touch with your XJ brothers and sisters. When you finish your build-up of the TJ, send some pics our way.

Re: Well no more XJ, got a TJ

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Zach passed away this past week. I am sorry for those who may have been able to attend the funeral, but I have been out of town. Our local Club, CAOS, was very involved in helping him out with his most recent Jeep project, and he did get a chance to spend some time in it on a club trail ride not a week before he passed away. Here is a link to what has/is going on......He will be missed.
