brendan127's Wrecked '98 Jeep Cherokee is Back





So here's thee story, after I hit the deer I sold that Jeep for $1000, so I was driving the monte carlo I had for a while, looking for something different and I found a Aurora, and traded the monte carlo and $500 for it, so I've been driving the Aurora for a while, fixing a few small things here and there, and the other night it starts misfiring, so my friend that I sold the Jeep too has fixed it up and he tells me he'll trade me the Jeep back for my Aurora(he can fix all kinds of stuff), so I gladly accept his offer and now here I am again. The Jeep will look slightly different once I finally have it because it will have fog lights.

Thanks, and cragar soft 8's are definitely in my plans for it maybe a small lift, I won't do a huge one because it's RWD. I'm hoping the fender on the right side doesn't look too bad because it wasn't replaced, he said he straightened it himself and it looks more like door dings now. Which isn't that bad. Thinking about maybe doing some lights or something, not sure yet.

Thanks man!

This is a question for everyone, would those wheels work with my 235/75r15's?

I'm talking about the cragar's by the way and not the stock wheels, the tires already on the jeep are 235's

Oh, sorry. I can help with that from hands on experience then. Had the same wheels on my old '96 and ran 235s on them til I got 33s. Not a good pic, and not an ideal setup for an 8" wide wheel, but heres proof it works:

Got my jeep back today. Few things need some attention but nothing major. First my belt squeals when I start up the jeep and after a little it goes away. Second my fog light switch doesn't click, so I'm not able to turn my fog lights on. Third, my passenger head light has a messed up bezel, any idea where I can get one? Fourth my temp gauge was going from actual temp and dropping to 100 when I was driving home.
