Another 2000 XJ


Recommended Posts

2wd 163k miles , decent paint / body , no engine. The person I bought it from took the engine/ header panel / fenders / bumpers and hatch and used them on his girlfriend’s RHD Xj that had a rod knock . Only rust issue is the driver rocker panel. 
 

What am I going to do with it ? I have no idea lol . One idea is replace the body panels he swapped out and throw just an engine in and keep it 2wd , or convert to 4wd while doing the engine.

nice! :D  that is remarkably clean for having such a gapping rust hole. :dunno:  down south that usually indicates it was sitting for a long time and that was the low spot where water collected.

Pulled  the carpet to clean it  and the floors are in good shape. Also put down A coat of rust seal and fluid film to protect it in the future.

is there any better sight in a Jeep than some clean floors?  :D 

Absolutely not. I just can’t fathom why they took this apart to use as a donor.I probably would’ve never gotten at this cheap though
