Re: Introduce yourself

Looks good there - seems like it's a fairly clean rig. Only 120K is pretty lightly used for a 4.0 - I'd go so far as to say barely broken in.

There's no single place for all build threads, they tend to be scattered around: some in the chapter forums, others in the Tech boards. Thinking about it a bit more, I wonder if maybe ehall's got the best idea - put the thread in your chapter's forum (in this case NAC), and put a link to it in your sig so when you post on the other boards, the ability to jump straight to it is only ever a click away.

Strange that there isnít a section for build threads. I do a lot of forum posting for all that I do, and the vehicle forums usually have a section for builds. The sticky on the chapter forum says specifically that it is not a picture forum....well builds are pic heavy (usually). Oh well, it is what it is.

Yeah, this XJ has 120k on it, and turned out to have a bad motor (cracked block between freeze plugs). It actually ran and drove when I bought it, but it ran rough. The motor I just swapped in was from a 96 w/77k on the clock. So, the 4.0 that you see in it now has only 77k on it! I kept the original tranny and tcase.

Headed out to grab more coolant, exhaust gasket, couple U-joints, and a few other odds and ends this morning. Fingers crossed I have it fired up today!

Re: Introduce yourself

Hey guys new to being a member but not new to the forums. I figured it was time i payed my dues.
I have a family of xj's... maybe i should reword that... I have a family with XJs. Almost my whole immediate family has had an XJ. Both my parents still have one each. When i was growing up and first got my license it was the first vehicle i drove (2000 Classic Silverstone metallic) throughout high school. 2 of my 3 brothers owned one as well. Needless to say I grew to appreciate them at a young age.
Anyhow here's a couple of my few. The fern green one is from Cali and the stone white is from florida.

We hope to see/meet you too!
Looks like you're doing just fine for a "budget XJ".
Liking the photo, and good to see you're already familiar with the park!

Bought it for $1500 already with the lift. Everything else has either been sale/clearance items or second hand!
