I'm going to look at this today.. Something just doesn't sit right with me given the price. He wants $1995 Clean title, 4x4, 138k, runs and drives nice, 75% tread on tires, no body damage and clean inside.
I can't see the first pic with the red Jeep but, you're right, I like it. Lots of people will tell you that's nothing for mileage providing its the 4.0. Most of the 5spds were the 2.5 tho'. No one wants the 2.5.
The nice thing about the 2dr is the doors...nice and roomy for the front peeps.
What's the brackets hanging off the front end?
(I'd love to shove the drivetrain of my WJ Overland into that 2dr, if it were feasible).
The other one with 138k miles is suspect. Odometer numbers get staggered when someone tries to roll them back.
It's a 4.0! I can't quite tell but I think it's brackets for fog lights. I was of swaying towards the automatic, since my last four cars were manuals and my DD is currently one. Once I get the jeep mechanically sound I plan on a project car which more and likely will be manual.
Please tell me you are going to be talking them down quite a bit.... $9k for a Cherokee is outrageously expensive regardless of how low miles are or how non molested it is. I agree its clean and looks good but the price is pretty high......
Keep looking 9k is insane. Taking a loan out on a 15 yr old vehicle is insane as well. Keep looking and buy with cash.
Lots of nice unmolested jeeps out there just gotta be at the right place at the right time. I paid $6900 3 years ago for my 01 and thought that was high, but it was mint, had 75k, and was amber fire metallic.
2001 amber fire cherokee sport 4x4, 2 in lift, 30x9.50 generals, 174 ion wheels, pretty much stock.
Hmm well interest rates are super low right now, plus I have such a good down payment and great credit I don't think it'll be much of an issue. KBB and Edmond's put it at about $7800, which I don't mind paying for. I did a estimate calculator for a loan and I'm looking at about $70 a month. I figure with all these 150k+ mile cars that I'll end up having to put more money into and still have more miles in the end. Seems like around the 150k mile mark the rear drums and tie rods are about worn out, and more and likely a leaky gaskets.
Its your money do as you wish. It does not matter your credit score or how great your credit is, on an older vehicle like that you are going to have a pretty high interest rate. Possibly even a personal loan on it. Trust me I was looking at an older wrangler and ran into the issue with loans. I decided against getting one at that time for that reason. Cherokees run for quite a while so I wouldn't let high miles scare you off. Id rather pay 3-4k for one with 150k miles than the price you are paying.
On another note, why come here asking about cherokees when you don't seem to want to take our advise on them?
