i have my 99 xj with 6 inches of lift and w.e but for somereason i want another jeep..

so im between a 1993 zj 180000 miles its ok...for 1500

or a 1994 xj 5 speed with 200000 miles for 1700 it has a 2 inch lift kit and snorkell...

which one is better???

i want to put them on 33s which ever i choose...
both have the 6 inline..
 
If the ZJ was a 95, I would say get it over the XJ. But it is a 93, leave it and get the XJ. :)

The early 93' zj's had a 231 case, did they not?

If its not a 249 i'd get the ZJ.

If it is in fact an AWD ZJ, then hands down get the XJ. The XJ will have the AX-15 manual, possibly a 8.25 diff, and a 231 case... Which is a rock solid combo...

But if the ZJ has the 4.0/AW4/231 combo, that's about as solid as it gets. You'll probably be stuck with a d35 in the rear however.
