XJ waggy I'd trade my rust free 2000 with 101K miles for that.

haha, I've done a lot of work (mechanically) to my 2000 to make it right, so I'd probably never sell it. However, nothing can replace an old cherokee like that with low mileage and nice paint. Its hard finding a 2001 in that condition, nevermind an XJ thats over 20 years old. My first 1990 XJ was in a condition close to that with 80k original miles, no rust and clean interior. Sadly it was totaled when a plow hit it, and if I knew then what I know now I probably would have done everything possible to fix it.

If you have 4HI, part time, N, 4LOW you have a 231 transfer case - command trac - you cannot drive it in 4WD when on dry pavement.

If you had a 242 you can drive engaged regardless of the road conditions.

On the Jeep.com website you can explore the difference.

Love the wood, love the white, love the stacked lights, the interior...



great score. Look into signmaker vinyls, they are made for outdoors and they make woodgrain patterns.

I think thsi would be fun, camo panels, OD truck and flat chrome

What a joy this Jeep has been to work on. Found the muffler and tail pipe section very cheap at the auto parts store and installed. The Jeep is now rattle free!

I also put on a new valve cover gasket and cleaned up the engine bay. The brakes looked good on the front, but I imagine the rear drums were never done. Replaced the shoes and had the drums turned, plus a brake bleed. Now stopping isn't as scary, and the Jeep is totally leak free.

The final step was a new windshield and detail. I'll take some after photos tonight. All that remains is a just a bit of rust killing and figure out the rear hatch hydraulic struts. I ordered new ones, only to discover one of the mounting fasteners has broken off and disappeared. Looks like I'll be making a trip to the salvage yard.

Wow another woody fan. I have had several and still have a few. 2 85 Dodge Caravans, a 1993 Jeep Grand Wagoneer (Grand Cherokee fully loaded with wood siding, and my 87 Jeep Wagoneer in cream. Awesome to see people restore them.

I bought a rust free one with a 3", sagged out lift. Gave $300 bucks for it. Just needed an ignition switch. Even had the factory Dana 44 and non vacuum disco front 30. I trimmed it up, threw 33" Baja Claws on it, wheeled it a very small amount, and sold it. I miss the hell out of it.
