Hey all.. i started out with this 1998 classic 4.0 Auto that I got pretty cheap.





It hadnt been maintained very well so she needed alotta TLC... tires were bald, front end was shot... so after a full tune up and fluid change it was time to start buying stuff :)





got sone good new (to me) tires


rebuilt the front drive shaft, threw in the locker, and axle tube seals...

I got my 98 pretty cheap as well, about $24k. :rofl:

I was at 100k miles before I started replacing things.


Pre-changes

HP30 axle u-joints
Wheel bearing assemblies
drive chain NP242 transfer case

I had the front in parts checked and everything was fine. I just had a popping noise in 4x4 low speed. Later I found out it was the drive chain, later being after I had changed out the axle u-joints and wheel bearings.

Since then I've made more changes but nothing really having to do with fixing the XJs ability to keep moving. ;)

Love the 97 plus xj's The way my wifes drives is day and night to my 98. She also seems to have alot better throttle response than me. Nice build, if I do another one it will be a 98.
