Re: O/T thinking about a ZJ, any advice?
My little sis has one, an 00 or 01 I think, its a V8 I think its a 318, and Ive heard its a roller cam engine, either way its STRONG as heck, really too much for the lightweight truck, on rain, or snow, its very squirrely when it shifts, the rear end will break loose on a rainy road changing into 2nd under light throttle.
and it DRINKS gas, Id be very leary of the tranny also, I figure its a a518, and Chrysler doesnt have a great reputation for OD automatics.
to me it rides and drives much like any old XJ, pretty stiff to me, and the radius arms up front make noises just like the older ones did.
