Bit the dust

my 2000 xj sport is finally done. It overheated a few times in the past few months and after replacing thermostat and e-fan it was fine until it overheated again and now the motor sounds like a bunch of nuts and bolts spinning in a dryer. I'm sure it can be repaired but its 15 years old and has 207,000 miles......i decided to put it to rest. I bought a patriot which is nice but not as capable as the Cherokee but it suits my needs. I will be salvaging the Cherokee, I didnt put any aftermarket products on it except tires so not much to part out. Good bye cherokee

Put it up here. If the body's good someone will buy it and build it a new motor. Or tear it apart for pieces. One or the other.

Excellent use of your third post in 5 years.
