i bought this slightly parted out 93 sport xj on Craigslist for $400 10/2011 in Colorado springs. it read 183.xxx miles with a blown 4.o engine 3.5 BDS lift ax15 Dana30 front Dana 35 rear abs little body damage on the quarter panels and very little rusted above the muffler, to me it seemed to be a great buy. hauled it home, cleaned it up and started to pull the engine.

That's a good idea... I might just have to do that.
