Pictures of my 89 XJ and 2008 XK...old and new!

I took a few pictures today of the new rig with the old XJ. After running my Cherokee into the ground (242,000 miles) through high school and college I started searching for a new ride. Test drove the Wranglers and Liberties as well as used HEMI Commanders and new 2008 sports. After driving the Commander I knew that was the Jeep for me. I sure have enjoyed the Commander but look forward every day to lifting and getting new tires. It is time to sell the XJ for a few bucks that it is worth and wanted some pictures of the Jeeps 19 years apart.

Cool pics, the Cherokee definitely served you well.

As for a lift, if you can wait & save up the money, get the 4" Superlift with the AEV module for the ESP system, you won't regret it. That's what I'm doing in the near future, the 2" lift just isn't enough for me.

2006 XK Sport, 4.7l, QTII- many mods

Yes I do like the silver. Also it was the XK available after two weeks of negotiating with three Jeep dealerships on price through email. Quadra-Trac II

The Quadra-Trac II system is really nice. It will serve you well!

Good looking ride. I had a Cherokee a long time ago when I lived in Nederland, CO. Good rigs...

Wonderful machines!

It seems that your XJ is still in good condition.

Wow. I never saw them side by side like that. I can't get over how similiar they are.
I also cannot believe that after 19 years there is no rust on the XJ!! It still looks great.
Nice Pics. Thanks for sharing! You will love The XK!

Good stuff. I'll be selling my 2" BDS lift soon (within the next 60 days), if you want to go that route.

Nice pictures. Good to see them side by side.
