Default pre-90s XJ's!

I have an 88. Ive noticed most people around here have the body colored bumpers, grills and Renix-less XJs. Lets see them Chromeys!

Heres mine. Nothing special. Bought from a guy for 600 bucks and threw in a complete set of jk? rims. I have a 5 inch lift to put on her soon, just havent had the time.

I have an 88 and traded a 99 ford zx2 for it. I hated all the chrome on it
Couldn't stand the flat black so I cleaned it up and put some clear on it. Then decide to do something different and painted it to my home baseball teams colors. Got bored with that then went for navy blue

Mine is a 1990 Laredo. Lots of chrome, except the driver mirror which was probably replaced before I bought it. My back chrome bumper is falling apart so it's mainly duck tape now.

Haha, I have alot of time invested in this thing to trade it off, but i'm open haha.

And I have had an '86 with the 2.8v6 and 5spd. Mine ran awesome. Was all stock except for exhaust, with the stock tiny tires, it was geared super low. But they don't compare at all.
