    I like jeeps, but they get awful gas mileage from what I hear.

    they arent a car, the are a 4 wheel drive vehicle and the transfer case that splits power between the front and rear axles robs horse power even in two wheel drive and two the axles are usually geared a lil to alot lower than a car to facilitate off roading......

    that said other than some of the real low geared axles its not that hard to get 20mpg out of the 4.0L I6......high teens in the 4.2L in the CJ's if you dont gear them to low.....

    interesting, they didnt total the XJ and gave me $3500 to fix it or whatever....should have totaled it as im positive it aint worth more than $2500....

    thinking i might pick up Kate a beater car for less than that, take the insurance off and mothball the XJ till i decide what im gonna do with the engine, less than 100,000 on it and i could use it in the CJ, really hate to fix it only to have her wreck it again and this time me be out the engine.....

    I need to jump into team jeep here. I drive a grand cherokee, overland, my husband drives a wrangler, both my kids have cherokees, my sister-in-law has a liberty, her husband has a commander. Plus we have a restored 1970 left hand drive postal jeep and a restoration project in a 1947 willy's wagon.

    wouldnt mind a TJ Rubicon but in all reality when i go hunting i like my full sized truck so other than maybe getting my father in laws CJ7 im not all that interested in a Wrangler sized Jeep other than my 5.......like messing with the older ones like the CJ's or ones like the M715/Gladiator series or your postal Jeep......guy i know has an old Willy's truck sitting out in his yard as decoration i keep meaning to ask about, that could be fun to fix up as a beater.....
