The Xj — love the full body. warm in the winter and cool in th summer. dislike the unibody. needs a frame for lifting and modifications. Its hard to put in lager engines. but possible. the best part is some came with a dana44 rear. around 1987. bolts right up. the 35 is good up to 33 inch tires but the 30 up front could use some steering upgrades at that size of tire. overall excilent vehicle. plenty of room. and lots of different trim packages. and the parts are easy to find. its a jeep. need i say more?

Pros: Full body, dana44.

Cons: unibody. no frame.

April Car Search Winner — i talked with the owner several times over the past 2 weeks during a recent search for a solid running classic in my current price range. maybe it was the sunshinest day we've seen this spring or trudging through so many inappropriate vehicles but when i got an upclose underneath hood up look round test drive this was the Car search winner! after insurance when we're better aquinted i'll update the review...pictures to follow~its been Beauteous these last 36 hours tho ;-)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Mechanically Clean: engine runs strong, gears change smoothly, new brakes and tires, recent exhaust installed, maintained original equipment, air shocks in the rear, tow hitch, 2WD 4WD options, minimal rust, windows roll up & down-rubber fair2good, all doors open & close, hatchback hydrolics work find, everything under the hood looks good (needs tune up/oil change), glass on all but winshield great, rear defrost, heat, air conditioning works fine, dome lights/headlights/signals/wipers all ok, no rips/tears on seats, solid floor panels under decent carpet, back seat folds down well for cargo. passed inspection last June for 2 year plates

Cons: Crack in the Windshield, after that: Mostly cosmetic:needs radio, back panel needs to be reinstalled after speakers are placed back in(previous owner purchased-didn't finish), can hardly see dings from hail storm-doen't have rust forming, back wiper is present but needs to be plugged up to operate,will start to gage gas mileage after tune up & overall check

If It Could Go Wrong It Did — it was all plastic that either fell off or broke off. the gear box went twice first time i got it reconditioned second time replace they have a toyoto gear box in them which isn't made to take the load of a 4 wheel driving. if you are looking at buying one make shore you try the 4x4 mode because some of them had falty mechanisms and once it was ingaged it cant be taken out to 2 wheel drive again

Pros: it worked

Cons: it fell appart and cost me more to fix then i got to sell it

Love My Jeep — 1990 xj, with the 4.0, dana 30 in front and dana 35 in rear, automatic, has a pacesetter header with a super 44 flowmaster muffler, has rancho springs, shocks, and control arms, and 2 inch blocks in the back. big horn maxxis tires. I love my jeep! It does great offroading even when it was just stock! I plan on finding a dana 44 to replace my 35 and maybe a storker kit for the 4.0 in the future.

Pros: easy to work on, fun to off road and on road, and sounds great

Cons: the owner before my uncle didnt maintane very well so had to replace alot of parts to do poor maintance

Totally Rockin' Offroad! — Has a 4in. Rusty's lift with 33in. tires. lots of skid plates down below and some extra sheet metal on the sides (mostly to cover the dents and protect from further damage). stock engine and tranny. stock axles. lockers front and rear.upgraded tirod (lol). interior is leather still nice actually. reddish gray carpet (because of red dirt and mud.) Pretty sweet.

Pros: pretty good offroad. runs real good. pretty easy handling.

Cons: um.....can roll over? never done it but....

I Love This Car Best First Car Ever — I loved this car, it was great on everything, all the breaks on it were cheap and fairly easy but it was a fun car its a shame i drove like an idiot in and wrecked it. i had to redo the brakes a few times that was the only bad issue on it but i think that was because of my driving but, it was running strong 200,000 miles and could have kept going for a while

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: the handling worked great, i drove it like a rally car at times.

Cons: the only things i didnt like was personally issues with me like the gas tank leaking and the speedometer only went up to 85

Perfect For People Who Dont Have Many Kids Ands Likes Offroading — I liked the 4 wheel drive selection, the way it handles on and offroad the great offroad look. I have only jad to work on this jeep one time I changed the starter. It is not the most comfortable thing I have ever drove but the heater works excellent and I liked the power windows that alot of older jeeps dont have.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very good lookin. Great off and  on road.

Cons: Not big enough when uhave 3 kids

A True Jeep — Well this jeep is one of my faviorite cars because it is a classic, but there are some draw backs to it. The cooling system for this car is absoluty horrible and so is the braking distance. But the sound of the car is amazing. The 4.0L is a good motor but it deffinately needs some upgrades to perfomance.

Pros: Very Reliable, good off-road and in bad weather, desent fuel economy on the highway

Cons: Bad fuel economy around town, slow acceleration, bad cooling system, bad braking distance

Great Vehicle, I Have 3 — This was a great very capable vehicle overall, I got it at the end of its life. Not due to a failure, but a lack of previous maintenance. I ended up using it for parts for another Jeep. It had many of the common XJ's having including oil leaks and floor rust problems, but it got me were I needed to go.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Stock Off-Road capability

Cons: Gas Mileage

Mmmmm... — I drove this Jeep for a number of years. I didn't own it but I was the only driver. I was totalled in 2000 I think, not by me. My mom and step dad used it to go to T.O. one weekend and hit some black ice on Q.E.W. I never did see the damage, it was enough for the insurance company to give up on her.

Pros: Rock friggin' solid. 4x4!

Cons: Prone to cancer in many areas.

The V6 model had great power and quiet ride. Great style. The 4 cylinder was not powerful enough for me. The cargo area was too small for me so I am looking at the Grand Cherokee now instead . Read More
