Hello all, my lease is coming to an end (thank goodness) and Idk why but I have this strong urge to get an older XJ. I used to have a 96 Cherokee Two door stick shift about 12 years ago, and I remember it was fun to drive even though I had it completely stock.
Its sounds like i'm missing a major skillset to dive into XJ ownership. And that is that I do not know how to work on cars. I have knowledge of what everything does under the hood (well maybe 80%). But I've never "worked" on my own cars, plus I barely have any tools.
Another thing is, this would be my daily driver, i'm coming from a late model car that has back up camera, remote start, bluetooth, push button start. I mean that is all stuff i'd be giving up it seems, which I do like.
I wanted something cheap and in good condition, should I be looking outside of New Jersey to possibly find something with less rust?
Am I being completely delusional in going with this route, for wanting a daily driver that gets me from point a to point b, and and doesn't require a lot of maintenance?

Hello all! I'm currently vetting out some HVAC contractors and I've been hit with a bit of sticker shock. I'd love to go with forced/central air! But I have I small cape style house in Jersey. I don't have much space to run duct work and if I did it would tear up most of my finished basement.
I've had two companies come through and I'm not totally convinced of what they are telling me. Both have said that I would need two compressors (one on each side of the house) which I feel is what is driving the cost so high. Are they just trying to sell me two to increase profit (upsale of the hardware)? According to them I'd need 5 zones. Can't one compressor be installed in the back or one side of the house and then make the runs? I have a small crawl space for the upstairs which would feed two zones (can they be run internally?). The other three would be on the first floor
Still waiting on the 2nd qoute, but the first came in at $12,800.
Another guy said he doesn't buy hardware but that he would charge $3500 for the install. But that makes me nervous.
