True but drivetrain aside it would be cool to own a factory Chief, beets painting the letters on and trying and bs your friends into believing you

I forgot, the 2000, and 2001 received upgraded motor mounts, and a stronger unibody.

A solid jack, and a good set of wrenches are all just part of the investment in owning a Jeep.

So do All 00-01 have the head that is prone to cracking or is it just on some of them. If so how do I know what head it has?

I'm growing rather fond of driving a vehicle with the aerodynamic qualities of a brick.

Maybe I'm mistaken. I have read so much information in the past couple weeks while fixing my clutch. I checked where I thought I read that, and couldn't find it again.

I know it said there was increased unibody strength.

I don't know...are there any real diffs between 98 & 99's??
I know something weird with my 1998....it only has power adjustable mirrors for electrical options....but it's gauge cluster still shows it could have ABS...rear lift gate open warning light....cruise ETC. It's almost as if they used the same dash as the limited models. If this makes sense.

i think the main difference was the Newer Intake Manifold.

i dont know about the stroker part but yeah i'd go with the 95 head because its high output then go with 99 plus intake manifold the only thing you need to change is the power steering setup but it doesn't seem bad.

I've got a 97 & a 98 right now. I think I can take care of the power steering parts. I already have the 99 intake.

Between the #3 and #4 intake port should be the 4-digit casting number, partially obscured by the valve cover (and probably dirt/sludge/mud/etc).

Not to be depressing, but this forum will probably dry up by 2020...

a 2001 cherokee that drives 15,000 miles per year will then have 300,000 miles on it. a 1996 cherokee will have 375,000 miles on it. how much time and money will people put into cars with that many miles...? nevermind the rust eating away at all of them...

but i guess its that way for any collectable vehicle. anyhow, sorry for the digression.

'bout all I know... minin' coal.
