Quick Question:

What year did Jeep start offering ABS on the XJs? I want to be sure I don't get an XJ with ABS.

I'm assuming that the ABS manifold block will be mounted on the left fenderwell like other vehicles so I should be able to identify it right away.

Thanks to thephantum for the Specs page. I've been refering to it frequently since I'm in search of an XJ. Maybe you can add the ABS year info to the page.

You can just turn the key and it will say ABS in a light, and if it doesn't do that, you dont have ABS

Not sure what year they began offering it...but even after the ABS option was available, not all XJ's had it. When I bought mine in 97 , I ordered it with an 8.25 and thus without ABS.

Idiot lights aren't always reliable since bulbs burn out. Wink The two most surefire ways to tell are:
    1) Look in the wheelwells. If there's more than one brake line going to each wheel, it's got ABS.
    2) The manifold block right next to the master cylinder (as well as al the extra lines on the master cylinder itself) are dead giveaways too.

I'll see if I can dig up any info on the exact year they began offering the option.
