I would post a pic of my jeep but it's still hanging with Ruben and the technicality of posting it is still tad bit beyond my computer illiterate capability.

Was that your's on his rack this weekend. I was at the shop Saturday. Your Jeep is looking good. He should be putting on the same skid on mine some time next week.

Hello everyone, I'm Jill. The guys that introduced me to wheeling would never let me drive....so

I brought home my new XJ about a month ago. Well it is not quite new, 1989 Laredo with 1/4 million miles. It has some problems. Needs new exhaust, hopefully just from the cat back. I am aware of the exhaust manifold problems, can't tell if there is a tick due to the leaks from the pipes. It is leaking oil. It has oil in the air box, the valve cover vent tube is clogged solid. Drivers window is dead, radio is dead, AC is dead, Serpentine belt squeals. Cruise control is dead. Power locks don't work in the back, 2 of the wheels are bent, will not hold air for more than 48 hours. Most of the clear coat has peeled off and the Gray paint is chalky. The rear bumper supports seem to be rusted away, as the bumper will pivot about 30 degrees up and down. The fog light mounts are rusted and the lamps just hang by the wires. The wind screen is pitted and has several fish eyes. There are several stains on the seats and carpets. I had to rip the material off the headliner so I could see to drive it home.

On the good side, There is no body or undercarriage rust. It started life in CA and moved to FL then GA, not much salt on the roads of those states. The engine runs great, the AW4 shifts smoothly and the NP242 works flawlessly. The cooling systems seems to be OK, is runs at a steady 200 degrees and the heat/defrost works great. The best thing is that I gave the owner $250 for it and he had to install a new battery so I could get it out of his driveway.

Update: the cooling system wasn't OK! I now have a new water pump, radiator, coolant bottle, t-stat, radiator and heater hoses with a flush & fill port. I guess I converted the closed system. I used a radiator with a filler neck, but did not change the plumbing, heater control valve or eliminate the coolant bottle. I just burp it at the flush and fill port in the heater hose. It seems to work.

Cleaned out the CCV system and added new grommets and oil filler cap. This reduced the oil leaks to just a few drops over night.

So far I have driven it about 200 miles and worked on it about 50 hours......whats that? about 4 miles per hour.

It doesn't appear that many XJ owners inhabit this forum. I just couldn't afford a wrangler for my first project.

Dan you are correct about the challange. There sure are a lot of little things to get done, just to make it a decent daily driver. Looks like it will be quite a while before it is, trail ready.


I got a window regulator, stock radio and a couple of wheels at a "pull a part place." So now I have windows that go up and down and music.

My Dad found a deal on tires and wheels from a place that does custom work on new TJ's for dealerships. I now have 4 new 215x75x15 tires on new TJ steel wheels. $160.00 already mounted and balanced. All I had to do was remove the center caps to clear the grease cups on the front axles.

Yes Major it will but...................U have to take the perpendicular interface and multiply it to the horizontal reflector to the area to be absorbed by the reflection of the areas mass then it sends the info to the units computer chip, but after all that if it still doesn't work it's because your bass boat is to big for the tank. :cool: :cool: :wacko: :usflag: :cool: :lol: :cool: :cool:

:banghead: to JeepTalk! Don't worry about this, there are a few but they are shy. Besides most engines and drivetrain on a Jeep are similar and I'm sure anyone here can help you.

My hats off to you for taking on a project like this. :jawdrop: Hope to see you around in the other parts of JeepTalk and when you get a chance post a pic of your ride under the Let's go Wheeling forum, there is a thread there for post rides and worst stucks, does not have to be an action or anything. Check out the Jeep of the Month forum as we need your vote every month. There is a Funny pic of the month forum also. :whistle:

Thanks for the welcome. I have several before pictures.....it is going to be a while before I have something worthy of, after pictures.

Guess I just need to pump the XJ crowd a little. To be perfectly honest, I see more Cherokee's on trails in North Georgia than wrangler's.

Seems like most of the TJ's I see around Atlanta are just, rich boys toys. About the only rocks I see most of them climbing are the curbs in front of their favorite patio bar. The only place they get stuck is on the downtown connector during rush hour.

They polish their rig with baby diapers and I clean mine with a pressure washer.

Jack,

Hope that "Ralph" will be ready for a road trip by October. I really don't plan many modification. I just want to get it good running shape to pull my sailboat and travel the nearby mountains. However, my Dad says that he is going to build me a front bumper with tow hooks.

What / where is Tellico?

Thanks for the welcomes.

Those pics are on a trail here in the Phoenix area called Willow Creek. It's sort of a 'hidden gem' as it close by yet largely unknown to the masses due to it being within the Tonto National Forest and because it requires a (free) forest permit which most people don't spend the time to obtain (FS office hours make it difficult). I'll post up more shots of the trail soon, but I'm about to head out the door to go camping in Payson and run Pyeatt Draw (Google 'pyeatt draw' or 'payette draw' for pics).

Matt,

Arizona, the Phoenix among other areas in the State is actually one of my favorite places to wheel. :1thumb: Maybe on my next trip out West (probably next year) I would like to make this area one of my stops and maybe get together with you for around 4 days of wheeling if you have the time. :cry1: :beer:
