It's old and crusty like me - but I like it just fine. '95 XJ 4 cylinder 5 speed manual transmission. I got it so my brother and I could have some fun on a couple archery and rifle hunts down in the Texas Hill Country. The Camo accents are part of the 2021 upgrades, lol The haters will say you can't polish a turd - maybe not, but you can roll it in glitter. LOL Here are a few before and after pics and Bonus Points for any of y'all who recognize the fella in the middle. Enjoy!

Faces are blurry in the last picture.

XJ’s are very reliable

Generally speaking, we're better looking when we are blurry, lol. John Mills is the answer, bowsnrods. He used to be active on here but I've been off the grid for a while. Got to hunt a couple times with him and Cody. Great guys.

Mine gets around pretty well. Added a 3 inch lift and some 265x75R16 tires and wheels to get me out of the mud.

Pretty girls and old cantinas

Nice.


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

Looks great! I didn't go with the lift and as a result the biggest I could fit were the 235/75/15's but I really like the look and performance out of them. My brother is more geared for the more serious off road stuff - I'm in the dilapidated hunting rig mode. Must be nice being able to get in the back seat(at least where my backseat was) so easily, lol.

I don't see how anyone could hate on this

Great hunting rig for sure!


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

Picked this ZJ up for the lease. It’s a beast. Full time 4WD and 5.2L V8.

With the college sticker on there, you can bet it was gently used.

Some good looking Jeeps. Nothing against them, but having a bed is a requirement for me. Spent too much time in a few of my uncles old k5 blazers to ever want to do that again.

Well, maybe not the back seat!
