    Default XJ 4.0l - What is that

    Hi Guys,

    I am viewing this XJ after work, but am quite intrigued by die second pic. (see link)

    Excuse my ignorance, but what is that zig zag thing, haven't noticed it on other XJ's or it being so obvious to the eye.

    Thanks for the info.

    Cheers

    My uneducated guess would be a aircon radiator.

    Thanks for the replies - aftermarket aircon radiator - I assume that is not necessarily a bad thing?

    Ask why the rear bumper is black & not green. Only the end caps should be black on the Sport.

    Edit: the rest looks neat. At 240k it should be nicely run-in.

    Yes especially with the front one green.

    My '99 Sport have black bumpers and black side trims.

    Looks neat for the price.

    I have a friend that is clued up on Jeep in general that is going with me and I have also done some research over the past weeks on the XJ's and watched a few YouTube vids - all just basics what to look for.

    Will post what I have seen tonight, just holding thumbs that this one is as good as it looks in the pics. Aparrantly, it has a full service history with books etc..

    Thanks for the support .. appreciated

    Best of luck. Its a pity that its only a Sport spec but good XJs are getting very scare, so its still worth a look
