JeepcoMJ Posted January 23, 2010 Share Posted January 23, 2010 I was driving, minding my own business, on my way to pick up the title to my brother's '89 comanche so a guy could come buy it today, when I saw something that caught my eye....a '99 4 cyl 2wd 5spd xj, and a comanche eliminator. I did not want another MJ right now, and needed a DD xj...so I looked @ the xj...no dice. someone busted up the ignition on the column, when you do get it to run, the bellhousing lets out a godawful noise until you punch in the clutch. the front end was a bit smashed up, and he wanted $1000 for it. I offered 500 based off all the bad things, knowing I have the parts to make it 4x4 and fix it up, but no dice. anyways, I stopped next door and asked about the eliminator...and bought it on the spot. it's a 1990 4.0 5 speed (ax15) 4x4 (np231) d35 rear d30 front 3.07's factory sunroof, decent headliner split rear (broken pass. glass) bucket seats tonneau cover (probably in crap condition...it's sitting under the transmission, which is sitting in the back). 193,000 on the ticker. trans was removed because of bad clutch and slave. needs: rockers cab corners rear wheel wells repaired. BUT the floors are in very nice shape. so, I'm gonna fix it and dd it. pics: Image Not Found Image Not Found Image Not Found Image Not Found Image Not Found Image Not Found Image Not Found Image Not Found Image Not Found Image Not Found Image Not Found Image Not Found Image Not Found Image Not Found Image Not Found Image Not Found xj I didn't get Image Not Found grand total invested...$250. the rear bumper was brand new 2 years ago and hasn't been used to tow. factory fogs fell off, but wiring is there. she'll need a bit of attention but nothing I can't handle. best thing is, I sold my bro's old 89 4 cyl 5 speed with a complete 4.0 renix 4x conversion today for $450...and this is in better shape :D so, oops...I did it again!
