Buying A New Vehicle...

  1. I decided I needed to go break my new XJ in this weekend and got myself and 3 freinds hopelessly stuck. I really need to get a lift and some wheels and tires.
     
  2. there is only one option...chevrolet k5
     
  3. tank*
     
  4. YOUR BIG, MOTHER#$%#ER
     
  5. I used to own a 2dr '93 XJ Sport. Had the high output 4.0 with a 5spd. I miss that thing, even though it was a piece of shit
     
  6. i made this observation when i was 14.
     
  7. Actually, some lockers would probably make a better investment. That was the only real complaint that I could level at my Cherokee. It was relatively easy to get stuck if there was any articulation required.
     
  8. It is pretty damn tiny for an SUV, but it'll work for what I need. It's a huge step up for hauling vs the Jag after all! I like it a lot more than my old explorer too.
     
  9. Seriously... After just driving this thing for a day... I love it! I think it's gonna be a long term keeper. It's nice because it's pretty small and maneuverable. It's got a decent amount of pickup, even lacking any back pressure(killing the torques!!!) because of the exhaust leak. I had no clue these things were as light as they are. As low as ~3,000 and up to ~3350. Mines got an auto, but not much of the luxury stuff so it probably only clocks in at 3100-3200. Methinks with a nice little intake/headers/exhaust setup this thing would be nice as hell to cruise. What, probably looking at 220 crank HP or so after that? I dunno how restrictive these stock systems are on these.
     
  10. 4.0litre right?
     
  11. I've got 195 series 27 inch tall tires on steel wheels. It looks like crap. the reason I got stock was lack of ground clearance. Someday I'll swap in an 8.8 with locker and 4.56 gears and do the D30 at the same time, but for now its my dd.
     
  12.  
  13. its not the most spacious truck but it is tough as nails and reliable.
    I didnt even kill my truck by running into a suburban but I went ahead and totalled it since it was already like 8 years old and I paid my Uncle like $2,200 for it. I ended up getting $4,300 from the salvage <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  14. 35x12.50/17 BFG Baja TAs
     
  15. Hells yea!
     
  16. that is so badass.
     
  17. I had the stock engine, trans, rear, tires, exhaust, etc. on mine. Didn't have any exhaust leaks, and I could chirp the tires into 3rd whenever I wanted. These things have a lot of torque. Took me a while to get used to the long throws and the clutch of the Cherokee after driving a Neon R/T with a short throw
