if it's mechanically sound that could be a blast.


I wonder what kind of ticket you'd get for just randomly driving in shallow rivers?

hell yeah do it! what engine is in it? mileage?
death wobble is a bitch on these. if the lift was done right, it wont be a problem though. make sure to hit some bumps on your test drive.

gas mileage and probably more reliability with the integra IMO The jeep would be fun no doubt but not as practical as a daily driver. 2 toys or 1 dd and 1 toy.

the integra has left me stranded me twice in the 4 months that ive owned it, bothe times were motor related, parts for it are semi expensive and kind of hard to find, took me 3 days and several auto parts stores to find a starter for it, whereas the jeep has used the same 4.0 for good knows how long parts and swappable between years and such, obviously not going to jump on it if i dont like what i see

go over all the unibody seams esp in the hatch opening, look for signs the sheetmetal layers have seperated and/or poped spotwelds. more likely to happen on a offroad used xj/zj

crawl under before the test drive, wipe any leak droplets off, and then recheck after the testdrive, pay attention to the rear tcase/driveshaft seal and the rear main seal

find out what kit was installed and bring some wrenches so you can double check a few fasteners looking for any loose one's

Batavia, eh? I don't think I've seen him before. I'd probably do it, although the cut front fenders and missing trim pieces don't please me..just my opinion haha.

I would say go for it, that XJ is worth about 2,600-3,000 depending on the quality of the lift installed and the overall condition of it.... What are you asking for the teggy? When I was on the lookout for my XJ I spicifically didnt get a lifted one. I dont trust other people's work and such. To test for the death wobble try and find a bump that only one tire will hit (pothole or manhole cover etc) because the one sided hit should bring it out. If it wobbles, not the end of the world. Could be a bad steering stabalizer at least, but it could end up being loose suspension parts, bad shocks, springs, etc... This is why lifted trucks are sour to me, you have to chase down other people's problems lol.

for those that care, the trade isnt going down, went to look at it today, the lift was done poorly, floors have rust holes, body is dented to shit, just more than i want to deal with right now, it runs good but other than that i can see it being a nightmare. but on a side note the integra now has new tires
