Default 98 xj first car

Picked up a 98 xj sport 4wd 4door, 205k miles runs like a dream. $500 steal of a lifetime. Only thing that's wrong is the driverside window regulator is bad, and it needs some floor patching done on the passenger side, but minimal rust on the outside. Snagged the Baja lights for 10 bucks at lima off road jamboree. The oil spots are from a previous pos vehicle

I put dupli color trim paint on the flares, and it has held up for about a year now. And thanks... I will keep you guys updated, but next up is ball joints and tie rod ends.
