Police edition cherokee

So, the locals in newark stole my friend's cherokee by smashing the steering column and mangling the internal parts. Luckily, his education level was minimal and he killed the battery, thus disabling himself from moving the car after a day. (She found it, and had it towed it to my house)

So my problem... I need a steering column with a column shift. This doesn't exist according to parts web sites. I've been to 4 junkyards today and none of them have one like this. (or a commanche or YJ for that matter)

What year Cherokee ?


A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

Can you graft the column shift setup on to another column?

The column shift is pretty rare in the Cherokee. The police version might be the only one that came that way. Not sure about jeep, but on a lot of cars, there's a separate row in the parts book for police editions as they had unusual options on a lot of parts. If you can't find the XJ part, look for a Comanche. Most (all?)of the trucks came with a bench set and column shifter. Another possibility would be to find the parts in a GM catalog and piece the old column back together. Jeep sourced the early XJ steering column from GMs supplier

My other car is also a Jeep,.. and so is the other one,.. and that one too. How many do you own before it's "a herd" ?

You'll need to do the research, but the collum is a GM part. I think from a S-10, but can't remember.

If it aint dirty, it aint a JEEP, it's just a SUV.
