96 ZJ, 182k (Almost 183k), Crank Seal, Jerk you around after warm and driving, stalled on me today after 3 weeks of not doing it, I believe rear wheel bearing, few other odds and ends LOL!!
Still love her though.
Got it stuck. It's still stuck. It's so stuck I could call insurance and say it was stolen and no one would ever know. It's so stuck I don't know anyone with a capable enough 4x4 to even to to where I got stuck to winch or yank me out.
216xxx miles, needs an engine rebuild, CKS, possibly ball joint or tre on pass side, and a new muffler to replace my current one which has a hole in it. But, everything is currently on hold, as the Jeep has lived up to its name...
1995 ZJ 5.2L V8 318. 230,000 miles and still rollin.
Transmission is completely shot (but still works).
VC almost completely locked.
Death Wobble under 30mph over rough bumps (got this yesterday).
Driver's rear window doesn't work (master panel fix needs done).
VIC needs repair.
Little bit of rust at the usual places for an Alberta Jeep.
Both front seats need reupholstered and motor work as well as seat heaters repaired.
Rear wiper motor locked.
Already repaired (in the 5 months I've owned it) :
Full brake workup (parking brake shoes didn't exist, front pads were toast and rear rotors were warped).
Anti-sway bar endlinks.
RF wheel bearing.
RF CV joint.
Set RF spring back in its bucket.
Sun roof repair (gasket was FUBAR).
Replaced almost every exterior bulb.
PCM connector failure (hard starts, occasional stumbles)
Blown muffler (due to the stumbling)
Driver door latch ripped out of sheet metal
Lock actuators broken, some interior stuff (sagging headliner, cracked plastic, etc)
Not too bad actually.
1997 Grand Cherokee Orvis Edition
1998 Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited
Lemme see... 230k. Just rebuilt the 4.0 about 800 miles ago. Rebuilt the trans about a year ago.
Needs a passenger side tie rod end (I have the V8 steering linkage), pinion bearings, front driveshaft, a new header panel, tailgate latch needs to be welded, need a muffler (mine's crushed), and a windshield. It could use a paint job, but I want to paint it OD Green, and it would just get screwed up playing in the mud.
