proracedriver616's "jeeplife" story

So i have my dd car sold but i told the kid he cant pick it up till i find a new car to replace it, ive been looking at craigslist and autotrader, here, ebay, everywhere for the last 4 days and theres nothing good im finding out there. Does anybody here have a good condition xj they wanna sell for <4 grand that doesnt have a bazillion miles on it? I would prefer a 90-96 but i would turn away a good deal on a 97-01. 5 speed is prefered but ill take auto if i cant find anything else

seth

Re: where have all the good cherokees fs gone

...apparently... ive went and looked at a few but they all turned out to be junk so far except this one http://cosprings.craigslist.org/ctd/2834363783.html its insanely clean, no dents or scratches, new 30x9.5 bfg's 5 speed with 155k on the odo. But the guy wants $3999 for it and he wont come down at all

Its a joke. Alot of the douchers are trying to sell XJ's at damn near TJ costs. There is a white one (TJ) off platte for 5500, and it seems to be in decent shape. prolly same miles as all the XJ's too.

I would kinda stay away from the dealers if you lookin for a good deal. I picked up my 97 a few weeks ago for 1500 off craigslist. Had been for sale for awhile. needed a few things but nothing major. Good deals are out there.

ive been scouring so feel free to share! I have never bought a vehicle from a dealer because they are so overpriced, but theres nothing very nice on cl right now. I'm trying to stay in the springs and surrounding area but if i dont find anything in town this week im gonna head up to denver to check out some this weekend.

Leiting always has 3-4 shiny XJ's for sale. I'm thinking they are his main money maker.

Re: where have all the good cherokees fs gone

I think they are also. Please have any of them you look at from there looked over very well. Have seen a few at my work from there that look good but have some major issues.

Re: where have all the good cherokees fs gone

'91-'01 Cherokees in good shape under $3K to $3,500 are never on Craigs for more than a day. Especially this time of year. Every "flipper" XJ I've sold seems to stir up a buyer war.....

Craziest one ever was a '98 Limited that I had to replace the engine in. It had ALL the options except heated seats, including the Up Country suspension and skids...... I put it at $4300 with 190K miles and eastern state rust issues..... had 40+ calls and e-mails in a 6 hour period.......

Best bet is to surf Craigs several times a day and find the time to call on/go see the good ones.

you'll end up paying more than you're comfortable with. the sooner you come to peace with that, the sooner you'll have an xj.

Re: where have all the good cherokees fs gone

I'll sell you my white 96 Xj.
It's not really forsale.
But for around 2000$ obo I'd sell it.
Not too pretty on the out side but it runs and gets the job done!

This.

Anytime I called on a lower milage one and tried to set up a time to see it, I was told there was already 6 people in line to buy it. People wouldn't even show me their Jeep. It was nutty. I lucked out and found a low milage one 10 minutes from my house, about 10 minutes after it was posted on craigslist. The sellers phone didn't stop ringing the entire time I was looking at it. Needless to say, she wouldn't budge on the price.
