    So, I did a thing...
    Out of “necessity” as I needed transportation while working in Japan. Decided on a RHD 2000 XJ Limited 4.0L. Great shape, zero rust, 78K miles on the original body and drivetrain as verified on inspection. Never owned one before so I figured what the heck...

    There is a company in lansing that imports those. Amazing how clean they are. Zero rust on mid 90s vehicles:cool:

    Takes some getting used to driving them around

    Finally able to get the baby BFG’s mounted yesterday. Had them shipped to my APO address in Japan... from purchase to delivery in 10 days with Amazon. No tax, no shipping! Much better than what was installed for the snow and general off road use we will see on the weekends.

    Ol' Reds new sneakers.JPG Hey Ya'll ,
    Just finishing installing 4) brand new Pirellli M & S , 245 70 16's . PO wanted them gone. They are on Ford steel rims , with a 7" backspace. Put 1/2" spacers on , ET lug nuts , & center caps with a cool decal . Painted them Black. Did it all for 300.00 Scoots. This is after I R&R'd my rear leaf springs & installed Monro coil over shocks . What a Job that was ! I'd post pics , but this is the CJ Forum ?
    Oh , what the Hell .....................

    Looks nice! My son is always drooling after an XJ. And I see a fair number of straight ones around the Ozarks yet.

    CONUS= Continental US. Yes, my CJ-5 had to stay in the states while I’m working in Japan.
