Welcome to CF
Value varies on XJ's quite a bit.
Seems the last couple years, with the Jeep craze, values have risen. Prices vary from each zip code, so I'd suggest doing some homework with Craigslist- AutoTrader or whatever. I always like to negotiate price as well

what do you think the parts are worth? i found a 4.0 4x4 XJ found probably go for about 2000 just basic top condition. although this one has obviously had some care

Just so everyone is aware, the OP isn't talking about an XJ. A 99 Grand Cherokee is a different model completely. WJ.

Honestly i would never buy a xj that has a lift on it,I would look hard for a virgin one that has taken care of it.A lot of the lifted ones was own by younger people that probably drove it hard and didn't take care of it,So you end up fixing all the problems that show their ugly head after you had it a while.

"XL cheroke" sounds like some kind of a Ford.



I think you mean XJ Cherokee.

The 99 Grands were called "WJ's" and the last series of the Grand Cherokees good for off road use and still have a lot of comfort, I have both and would get rid of either one.

Jeep uses two letter designations for the various platforms. Similar to how GM uses a one letter designation.

Camaro/Firebirds are F bodies for example.

XJ is the 84-01 Cherokees
ZJ is the 92-98 Grand Cherokees
WJ is the 99-04 Grand Cherokees
YJ is the 86–95 Wranglers
TJ is the 97–06 Wranglers

And so on.
