Meet the new Jeep
« on: October 01, 2012, 07:16:03 PM »


1987 Jeep Cherokee Chief - 174K
The Bad: Very little rust - Salvage Title, the result of a minor accident in 2002. I had done a lot of work to the Jeep with a lot of new parts so I decided to keep it and bought it back from the insurance company and fixed it.

The Good: the jeep is in very good shape for the year, I have done a lot of work thru the years including mods and maintenance. What I have not been able to do myself I bring to Bill at SVE to do (feel free to call him - he can confirm). I’m the second owner of the jeep, I bought it in 2000 from a soccer mom next town over – the jeep had 88k at the time. Wife used the jeep to haul the kids for a few years until the family grew and I got her a minivan. This is when I took over and lifted the jeep.
*converted A/C to new refrigerant a few years back the right way and works excellent.
*4.5 inch RE lift with adj.upper and lower control arms
*RE adjustable track bar
*full leafs springs in rear
*front and rear Tom woods drive shafts
* AA short shaft in 231T-case
*front skid plate, tcase and tank
*HP vac.disco D30 with 456 gears open diff
*xj D44 rear with 456 gears and lockrite locker
*factory xj swing out tire carrier
* ARB front bumper with Harbor Freight 8000lb winch
*cut off rusty rockers and installed 2 x 6 rectangular tube (Aaron did this for me)
*33 x 10.5 BFG Mts with lots of tread left
* does not leak oil


Bought for a song....  Wonder 3.0 territory....

no.. not chopping it up or throwing the axles under the MJ....
will go into the collection as "the year the 4.0 was introduced"
I never wanted a red car.. always thought they were tacky and common...
I now have 4 very not common cars and they are all red.. :o

Let me know where you travel to get things, and if there is room for other things. ;)

That is way to clean for Wonder status. Hahah
