Now dont get me wrong I love my renegade but miss being able to hit some tougher trails like my old ZR2 sonoma and even with 400,000km on the original 4.3L v6 and 5spd trans it never let me down what happened to being made to last? I realize to most people if doesnt appear like more than an s-10 but it truly was a wolf in sheeps clothing with a track 3.9" wider and 3" more ground clearance than a s-10 4x4 a 8.5 rear ring gear and 7.25 front running 31x10.5x15 tires stock it really held its own on the trails

I'll take the KJ over any 4x4 I have owned due to the overall way it handles, runs etc for me.

The ones I would like to have back ;
a.79 FORD F150 SHORTBED STEPSIDE built 351, 4 SPEED 4X4 bought it new
b.77 DODGE VAN 4X4, BUILT 360, AUTO, DANA 60S ETC bought new and kept adding
c.76 FORD BRONCO, V8, AUTOMATIC, P/S, P/B, AFTERMARKET A/C ETC
d.74 FORD BRONCO V8 AUTOMATIC
e.97 CHEROKEE AUTO AIR P/S, P/B ETC ( OWNED 3 ALL BOUGHT NEW BUT THE LAST ONE WAS BEST )
all were fully built , lifted, regeared, etc

All of them sold after many miles and lots of fun
Know where the first 4 are ,

b. hasn't been out of a garage in over 30 years
c. was totaled by the owners kid

What year XJs did you have?

KJ is one of my fav 4x4s, so is the LR3. Love XKs too. The XJ is pretty cool now, although now kind of a nostalgic thing.
