My son has a 318 in his truck and it is brutal on gas!

You could always offer the guy $400 for it and part it out for $600-$800 and make a few bucks on it ;)

will, if you buy this is to fix it and have it STOCK bc then you will have the same trouble with the XJ,, but after your done with the XJ you can go modding that ZJ as a nice tow truck like you wanted,, but IDK (sorry if I sound like your dad, I know I probably do..:) )

Not really....

My ZJ with the 5.2 and the AWD gets about 14 MPG.
My XJ with the 4.0 riding on 33" tires and all the working fun stuff gets about 15MPG
