Re: Considering buying XJ with 100,000 Miles
A hundred grand on an XJ is just broken in! Mine has 120,000 and my mom's neighbor has two, a '93 with 225,000 and the other, an '89, with 375,000 miles! Check fluids (trans too!) and make sure everything is clean and not burned smelling. Brakes straight, steers straight, no funny engine noises? Buy it! Just make sure EVERYTHING electronic works (power windows, locks, mirrors, no flickering idiot lights/gauges etc.) when you buy it. That stuff can be expensive to replace. Also, make sure the 4WD engages. The front axle disconnect can be a concern on these.
