PostForum: General 2nd Gen Discussion   Posted: Tue May 23, 2017 9:26 am   Subject: 300k miles and still going strong
I've got 235K on my XJ and it runs perfectly. I've used nothing but synthetic since I inherited it at 155K. When I dropped the oil pan to change the gasket and the rear main at 195K, the cylinder wall ...

The dent has cracked paint around it and a chip of paint missing on the back door. It would probably cost $1500 to have that fixed and I could install flares for under $200. There was a guy selling a ...

The hardest part of changing my oil is jacking up the car. It's incredibly easy to change. On my new motor, I stick with the recommended 5w30, but on something with uneven compression and a bit of mil ...

To be perfectly honest, part of the reason I was contemplating them was to cover up a dent that came on the car. It's the only real damage to the body, other than a rust bubble by the taillight. You c ...

I sold my '05 ACR back in 2012 for that much and it was perfect, more stock than that, with less than 60K on it. The dude's delusional. Depending on miles, I'd probably offer $8,000.

The high offset aftermarket steelies are heavy and flimsy. There's a reason they're cheap.

Plus, you can only run a 3-5mm spacer on the stock studs before it starts to get sketchy. That won't make a noticeable difference. Any thicker of a spacer and you really need to upgrade to longer, str ...

SRT's run a taller tire. Coilovers sometimes allow wider tire fitment, but you don't want to run taller tires. It'll throw off your speedometer. A 17x7 with that offset should fit fine.

I Plasti Dipped the R/T emblems so they match the wheels. The gunmetal grey Plasti Dip just so happens to match the grey I used on my wheels pretty closely.

I remedied the vacuum line issue by just deleting it. Small breather on the back of the valve cover and a rubber cap on the tube outlet.
