4.5 on 33's. I will say I haggled down a fair bit from asking. I was expecting to pay closer 4 or 5 for a "nice" XJ, but that's just me not knowing anything about xj's. TJ's and some yj's demand a stupid premium, and I think xj's are going that direction too as newer jeeps are more computer are more difficult to work on. Just my 2 cents though. I saw an LJ for sale the other day for 20k O_o, mind blowing what older jeeps are going for these days.

I dig the way it looks with the trimmed fenders and 33's. Looks great!

Yep, I was searching around for an LJ Rubicon about a year ago and they were all about $20k. It's hard to get financing for something that's 10 years old and over 80k. LOL. Ended up buying a brand new Silverado and waiting another year to get a Jeep as a 3rd vehicle.

Mine is currently on a 3.5" lift and originally had 31's from the PO. However, with the best bit of luck I've had in a good while, I picked up 33's for it as well...for literally nothing. Check this out for a line of good luck:

Seller was asking $1,800
Bought Jeep: -$1,600
Sold 31's that came on the Jeep for +$250, but he didn't want the rims.
I picked the rims back up from his shop the next day, sold those for another +$100
So, not including the wheels, I have +$1,250 in the Jeep itself.

Bought a set of 2012 Rubicon take-off's for -$300
Sold those for +$900
Bought 2006 Rubicon wheels, new 33's, Gorilla lugs, and spacers for -$800.
So, all-in I'm into the new wheels and tires for $200.

When all is said and done, I'm up $50. Minus of course all the parts and fluids I've bought thus far, which is probably $300 or so. I'll tally up everything once I finish the Jeep.

Looking for a rear driveshaft in good used condition for my XJ. Auto with d35. Dented mine up pretty good at Hidden Falls a few weekends ago. Thanks.
