I think that was one of the first years. Unless I'm mistaken the choices were an underpowered 4 cylinder or the crappy GM 2.8l v6 that doesn't last long. Both were carbureted. Either way the engines were not very good until a few years later. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong. Smile You can check some specs here: http://www.jeephorizons.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=953

How good a deal are you talking about? Does it run? Are you using it as a daily driver or an off road rig?
I would not use the 2.8 or 4 cylinder for an off road rig but it would work for a driver. They are underpowered motors.
You could also get it for a parts XJ and get another one. I bought a 2.8 86 XJ for $150 for just parts.
