After having my 89 XJ for a little over a month, we took it on our first road trip. We headed to the beach to pick up something or my wife's business, then made a day of it cruising up the Oregon Coast. A bright, sunny 75 degree day made the first trip in the XJ quite enjoyable.

I must say that I really like the way the Cherokee handled up through the coast range, and out on the open road. It was very comfortable and made for a really fun trip.

After today, I am totally convinced that selling my big GMC 4x4 and getting the XJ was the right move!!

I am LOVING IT!!!!!!

They are a good rig no doubt about it. If/when you go wheelin' with it you'll also find it does quite well offroad, too. We usually go to Tillamook State Forest with the wife's XJ and my TJ. Wink

I plan on doing some off road this Fall. I just have to try it out. TSF is a good spot!!! Nice area!!! I did most of my wheelin' up in Central OR, just South of Bend.
We hit Tillamook, then Garibaldi, Rockaway, Wheeler, Manznita, Cannon Beach, Ecola State Park, then finished up with dinner in Seaside before heading home.
