Hey everybody! Just acquired my 94 XJ about a month ago. Took me months to find a 5 speed but it was worth the wait. Already been camping in it once and added an Old Man Emu steering stablizer. Really excited to be here!

welcome, that's a great xj you have there I know how hard it is to find a manual shift ive been looking for years and to be a 94 it is even better (95 up has airbags )

Thank you both. Forgot to mention that I also got a rough country lift (3 inch) and some 31 inch Mickey Thompsons. Those are waiting at home to be installed!

Looks like someone already at least replaced the stock suspension with more stock type parts or maybe a small lift. Awesome Jeep my first was a 94 sport in Red. It has my favorite Jeep Steering wheel I have a 95 now and the airbag wheel just isn't the same

it does kinda look like it might have a lift but not sure how to tell. The wheels are 235/75/R15.

Welcome!

Do yourself a favor and swap out your trans fluid with some Redline MT-90
As a 5-spd owner with 100k+ miles logged with my AX-15 - it has never shifted better than with MT90.

Amazon Amazon

Might as well do a full fluid flush for good measure (Axles, t-case, brakes, power steering, blinker fluid, etc).
