    So hey

    Life long Toyota guy who "needed" a project/woods vehicle...so I picked up a 93 XJ

    Of course, this is my first dedicated Jeep forum, however I'm a staff member at Tacomaworld, and a member of many other Offroad and Toyota dedicated forums

    Nice! That engine is a tank. Easy to get more power in it too.

    It came home tonite

    Runs and drives great, but I need to keep an eye on it...smelled vaguely of running hot but everything looks good

    Gonna try and find a solution to the ceiling, the old fabric obviously sagged and was cut out so I have bare foam exposed, and I need to replace the center console, or re mount the lid and find a place to bolt a lock box

    Next up is some tires, and bedliner paint job in black

    Oh yeah! Scary as @%$#! First time I felt it I was doing 80mph in a Dodge 3500. Took me 2 months to figure that out back in 2005.
