I've got a 2001 XJ I bought new for my wife to drive country roads in winter here in northern Illinois. It's my back up/weekend driver now for the past 8 years. This XJ is ridiculously reliable!!! With 310,602 miles now it never once left us stranded or stuck in a ditch. It's never been to the stealership for anything. Besides maintenance parts. I've only had to replace radiator, alternator, a window switch, and recently the muffler and fuel pump. In 2020 I installed a Rubicon express 3.5" lift, Bilstein shocks, and a IRO track bar. Then put on 17 Willy's Wrangler wheels. And I'm ready to keep going.
