yea, that all sounds like the Jeep thing. My XJ is gonna be a brand new XJ when I am done, once piece at a time, LOL.... but yea, if you dont want to fix it, you can sell it AS IS or part it out. Does not sound like anything you would have to call and pay a mechanic to fix. Sorry to hear about your luck... The XJ is telling you something, just have to figure out what it is.

The more we mod them the more you have to maintain them. I have 3 trucks and my street ride the ElCamino. I keep adding more and more to it. It gets faster and less street friendly with each mod. My wife wont ride in it anymore because the exhaust is so loud she gets motion sickness from the vibrations. The nature of the beast. Same goes for the Jeeps. Good luck, hope you keep it. That S10 plan sounds pretty good to me. I had a small block with those same general plans. Just to many projects for me to handle.
Did a 2 year old write that for you, that was a hard read.
There's nothing low maintenance about having a rig that you wheel, gota keep an eye on stuff and fix it as you see it and not let it all pile up.
It's a Bronco thing........95 Bronco--6" Lift--37's--Hefty Fab Front bumper--BroncoAir rear bumper--SAS in the works
so mine caught on fire, the wiring harness, map sensor and part of the fuel rail and injectors caught fire and all need to be spliced or replaced, ill have to tear all of it out including through the firewall and behind the dash
if you dont want to spend time doing repairs this isnt the hobby for you, especially on a dd
