Sounds like you really want a V8 ute - so sell both and get one!

I'd go either option 2 or option 3. V8 conversion in the XF would mean engineering issues! Plus I reckon option 2 or 3 would be more fun :p

Re: opinions for xe and xf

how much do you reckon youll get for both of them?will it be enough to buy a decent v8 xd-e.spending serious money on either of them could be better spent on doing up a decent ute.stay away from buying a basket case.

Re: opinions for xe and xf

interesting dilema, i was wondering how much you'd get selling both? certainly a far way off a V8 XD ute thats not a rust bucket. what about option D, keep XE as is get a ZJ fairlane LSD for ute, get a reco or good second hand crossflw motor and a bit of a cam and it'll go better than a stock 302 seeing its a manual. probably cost all of $1500 plus fitting

Re: opinions for xe and xf

hey there, hmm i could probly get about 5- 6 grand for both of them! ill probly just save for a 6 grand 351 ute! its easier because i cant be bothered with the ute it just needs to much work to make it good where its easy to just not spend money for a couple of months and have a good ute.

my xe has 6 months rego, new head, new radiator, new clutch, 4 speed, its an 'S' its maroon with wildfire mags,tyres are three months old, new shocks,and rear springs, lowered, new 2.5in exhaust and extractors,interior is in heaps good condition, power steering, tints and thats about all i can think of and good paint.

the ute will have 12months rego its been resprayed 2years ago, lowered, good tyres, reco 4 speed

Not a chance. Sorry, but they are not worth that much.

Re: opinions for xe and xf

Hrm on 2nd thoughts I'd stick with the XE & warm it over a little. The XF ute I'd either keep for rough stuff (ie camping or work car), or if you have no need for it then I'd sell the biatch.

$6k for an XE & XF? Good luck! I can see the XE selling for more than the XF, but you'd be lucky to top $4k for both I reckon. Their current value is 3/5 of f*** all...
