My name is Blake. I am 15 and just bought my first XJ. I am so excited. I have always wanted a XJ and last night my dad surprised me. I can't wait to make this jeep awesome. Some people at my school just don't understand. They were like "get an FJ!" or "dude get a F-150" but my personal favorite was when I was asked "why would you want such an old Jeep?" Anyway... I couldn't wait until after christmas when the XJ gets here to start this thread. The jeep has only 83 thousand miles, 4.0 lift from Tomken, 245-75-16 Goodyear tires, limited trim (let me know if I should replace the wood grain on the center bezel),and jeep rims.. Here are some pictures from the original listing.

Yeah I am curious to see how it fairs the first time it goes off road! The seller said it has never been on a trail.
