It'll happen. Now the thread will silently and slowly disappear from the top of the page.


Sweet!

We haven't forgotten about your threads!

Good job on that white XJ. I've seen Rubicon wheels and tires for sale up around here, but $1,000ish.

yea.. they were not cheap. but he got what i thought was a decent deal on them. it's what he wanted, so it's what we put on. hahah. it's hard to go wrong with a set of American racing or crager black soft 8s 15" with a decent all terrains though. just makes it look clean, yet functional.

that was a relatively rise free jeep, but we did take the axles out, wire wheel the bottom and re under coated it. made a night and day difference IMO.

Last night after work, I replaced the remaining spark plugs, installed all new wires, distributor cap and rotor on XJ.

Cleared the code again....  ::)

XJ is gone. Got tired of it sitting in the parking lot, so I donated it to the Rawhide Boys ranch.

It's true. It was picked up and hauled off while I was at work yesterday.

Very true. Only my car now.

I'll survive, just means a new search.

I'm waiting to see what pops up, no real hurry to get something. Means I can put money aside and possibly get something newer with less miles.

I don't think that quite qualifies, Bobby, but at least it's a Jeep.

Well the only requirement was " bet she drives a 4x4" so it qualifies! Lol even though it's all stock.. but still.

My wife drove a liberty when her van was in the shop a couple years ago and she really really liked it.

So what's it been Bobby, 9 months?  Any serious plans developing?

I think he was referring to the "plans" comment. The fact that he knows 7 months to the day is strong evidence this is no passing thing....

In order of bold text.

1. Hate apartment living. One day there was too much noise and I finally said I'm done.

2. XJ was turning into a nickel and dime money pit and I got tired of chasing one problem into another.

3. Bear is still awesome. That's another reason I want my own place.

4. For a while I wasn't able to log on due to that bug, so I was around just couldn't post.

But thank you. And I remember the timeframe as I met her 2 days before I started my new job at work.

Bobby,

Watching you "Grow" on your thread here is like watching an episode of "HeartLand"

It's all good and wholesome, and we all hold out so much hope for you and your future, I know it is going to be a bright one. And for my two nickles, I'm betting it will be a walk you will not make alone!

But

I do (Selfishly) want to see you in a proper 4X4...I with the Tanker on that point!

Plenty other Jeeps to buy any day of the week.

Disregard anything big D might say about them not being proper 4x material. I believe he's just sore from rolling that one he owned years ago..... :popcorn:

bc you're driving a glorified grand caravan.. without the benefits of auto sliding rear doors and worse fuel mileage. hahaha.

Oh I'll eventually get something to replace XJ. As of now throwing money aside for the house (still looking), getting ready to go enroll on college, and pay down debt has more of a priority for me.

RIP XJ  :cry:


It's all ok. I could've gotten you all like I got Nate. Sent him a couple pics of a 2012 lifted DMax with 86,5xx miles, told him "so this just happened." It was at my sister and brother in law's shop getting some radio/electronic work done on it. Naturally he had to park it behind my car so I had to stare at it while getting the new radio put into the car...

While it would've been epic to get it, I'm not willing to drop $40,000 on a truck, no matter how much I loved it.
