Default Moving to Austin

XJ needs warmer weather, little repairs and then ready for some fun.

Why are all these Austin XJ threads dead? Was there an exodus to AJP?

Mine needs the same thing: Quadratec is selling the basic Dynamax cat-back for $113. Then Amazon has everything for new brakes all around for cheap.

Afternoon folks. Just checking in to see who is around. I picked up and XJ a few weeks ago and live on the North side of Austin. What's happening?

Good looking XJ!

I'm here too...just been working on servicing my XJ and combating some neglect from the previous owner.

capnjack, I'm curious what you paid for your XJ? I just picked mine up about 6 weeks ago for $1,600 in driveable shape, but needing some TLC.

Sounds like you got a bit of a better deal than I, and it looks like its stick. I paid 3, but interior (gotta love that 80's charm) and frame are in excellent condition and totally rust free which is what I was looking for. Brand new tires too, that might just be me justifying it though

I have a 93 YJ in Chicago that the frame was completely rusted through and needed to be replaced. So I have a phobia of rust for sure. Eventual plan will be full drivetrain swap for the XJ, but that is definitely down the road.

I have been DDing it 25 miles or so a day for the almost month with no problems. The engine is fine just a squeaky belt. It does need a sway bar and an SYE though.

Regretfully I have never been wheeling, but would like to soon.

Are you on a 4" lift with 31's? It looks a little taller than 4"...

The reason I asked about the price you paid, is that I want to make sure I'm not pouring good money after bad and that my money will likely be returned if I sell it down the road. At this point I feel good putting another $1k into getting the rust under control and replacing the parts it needs: A couple quarts of OSP-15, a few hours with the angle grinder, new OME leaf springs, new brakes, new exhaust, and bed-line the interior.

Right now, including a new Rough Country front bumper, my Amazon cart is sitting at $1,500. - Just waiting to hear back from ARB to verify the Part # for the OME leaf springs.
