New to me XJ for a new Jeeper - help!

Post by ciarachristina » Tue Oct 23, 2018 8:45 pm

Recently picked up a 2000 XJ mainly as a daily/winter driver. Have already started the fixings on it but I can see that I have a long long way to go. I originally planned to register the xj in my home state (MA) but have realized that it’s going to take too much time to get everything squared away enough for it to make that drive safely. Alas I am looking at preparing for the MD state inspection. Right off the bat had some pretty serious oil leakage issues which I ended up throwing a ton of money into by handing it over to a Jeep shop. There are some pretty serious issues with the steering and suspension systems that I know is also going to take a lot of money. I have a buddy who is skilled at general mechanic-ing but has no Jeep specific knowledge. We do not have the equipment to perform these huge repairs and I am wondering where people go around here to avoid thousands of dollars in labor costs for simple fixes!
