    Default Thinking of Selling my XJ

    Having this argument in my mind about selling my XJ. Reason being I have two young boys that are keeping me extremely busy and when we go away we just use the X-rider as it's much lighter on the juice and there are oodles of packing with the bak.

    But then I also love my Xj it's not perfect but I've done a lot of work on it over the past 5 years that it's been in my possession.
    But it's just standing there gathering dust and recent the only time I use it is when I take it out to the shop to go buy bread over.

    Now do I keep it with the hope that in a couple of years time I'll have more time or do I let it go and make peace with it?

    And by saying that in a couple of years I'll have more time, I think I'm just BS myself. As my sisters kids are in high school and they also seem to still be kept busy wit hall the kids activities.

    I dono hey. All I know is that the XJ somehow imprinted on me like a disease.

    if it costs you nothing and you can just keep it why not, if you need the cash for something else sell it, i sold mine, bought another one after about a year, sold it and still think was it the correct choice. they just have something the other jeeps dont have.

    Look, you probably going to get busier as they age, so if you are not using it, maybe it is time to let it go?

    Heart vs head, hey! If it's in the way and you could really use the extra cash by selling it, then there is no point in keeping it. However if there's enough space for it and it's not a money pit to you, why not keep it as your classic pride and joy to drive to GTG's, the odd weekend to the Waterberg, etc?

    Space I do have, it's not in the way, can always do with the money.
    Just thinking with anything that standing more than what it actually drives. That eventually it will become a money pit.

    But Hey 4.5" lift with 30" Muds makes for a good looking rig.

    You bet! If you've had your fun with it, flog it. If you want a functional classic, keep it and drive it once/twice a week!

    That XJ looks to be in good nick. I believe it will go up in value, especially with the prices of the new JL's. Agree with other comments, if it doesn't bother you/take up space keep it.

    XJ's just have something about them.......

    Yes it's not in bad shape got some marks and dents here and there. But definitely in better shape then a lot of the other XJ's that are currently up for grabs out there.
