2.2L Ecotec engine, 4speed auto, power everything, corvett yellow, black interior, front ss/sc bumper with fog lights, Pirelli tires, K&N drop in, braided stainless steel brake lines, ss/sc springs, dont remember what else

its a great economy car, and real fun to drive,, it has about 150hp, so its got a lil pep, not like the ss/sc one that has 205hp nor the new ss/tc that has 260hp

it a great lil car

Ill find a pic, and post it up

I also used to drive my dad's Explorer, I put in a custom exahust, and intake, and Hypertech computer module to stage 4.. that thing was a beast,, then I got a speeding ticket, and my dad had it put back to stock, he still kept the exahust and intake

I also drived for about a month my uncles 1986 Porsche 928

We also have a 2002 mercury Sable.

Not ours, but its the same thing minus the fog lights.

We have had it about 5 months. I hate it. Last week we started having problems with it.
I had to replace the positive battery cable lead. I made a new one from 4 ga.
The valve cover gasket is leaking large amounts of oil onto one of the cats.
It idles up high when you are stopped and turn the wheel in any direction which causes it to dart forward unless you have the brake firmly planted.
It idles erratically and almost stalls out continuously.

Its a pain in the ass to work on. To replace the plugs you have to remove the upper intake manifold. In order to replace the oil pan gasket you have to remove the exhaust. It seems like there is no easy wrenching on it.

Pretty comfy, rides smoother then the XJ and can fit the whole family well. I wouldnt buy another one though.

But I still cant wait to get my WJ back on the road! :D

Over the years I have owned way too many to list, but my favorites have been the current XJ of course,

84 Ranger 4x4
76 Dodge Ram 4x4
81 Camaro Z28
67 Nova SS

Currently my wife's DD is an '08 Acadia ... blang thang :rofl:

A great vehicle, but a little under-powered in my opinion. Has some awesome sports suspension though - handles like a low slung car. The all wheel drive is awesome too. Beat the hell out of my Jeep in road-snow. Sits kinda low though, so taking it camping and what not is an exorcise in finding the smoothest possible path to the camp site :rofl:

First pic has the arse-end of my youngest son's ZJ :D

As of right now, I own:

the 87 XJ
95 lincoln Towncar (DD)
90 GMC extended cab 4x4
91 Ford Tempo (4 sale)
I also have parked in the garage a 1987 Dodge 250 2 wheel drive pickup. It belonged to my grandfather.

My first vehicle was a 67 chevy 2wd longbed. Called it the smurftank cause it was blue and tough as nails. I've had way too many vehicles to count, quit counting at 78. And that was 6 years ago lol. (Got the tradin itch right now... anybody got any good trades? lol)
