Just bought a 1996 Jeep Cherokee with 51k original miles! Some Questions...

Whats up all...

I just bought a 1996 Cherokee with 51k original miles. I got a sweet deal on it. Now for the questions:

1). Where is the best place for Cherokee accessories? (mostly interested in lighting. I want some off road lights, bars, fogs, grille, bumpers, etc...)


2) I have to replace an o2 sensor, hard to do?

Check out the Tech/FAQ's first, then come ask about stuff that you can't find.

Welcome!! I was trying to pick up a '96 with 65k original before I bought my '00.

IMHO, 1996 was the best looking year of the Cherokee. I'm a bit partial though. There are so many companies that sell aftermarket parts. Join a bunch of forums and watch the classifieds, thats where you will find the best deals...

96 XJ 4.0L/AX15/NP231/AUSSIE'D D30/C8.25/4.5" RE LIFT/33'S/BUMPERS, SLIDERS, ETC...
