Coolant is clean, bottle still has the same amount now, as the day I bought it.

Oil was clean before oil change and clean now still.

Thanks guys.

Cool man. I have one in the same color. I spent a solid two months bringing everything up to date maintenance wise. These trucks really do drive well.

Yesterday my tail lights and dimmers stopped working... found out it was a fuse so I replaced that. Fast forward to today... now it's running like crap.

Plugs and wires were ordered.. I'm starting to regret buying this....

2000 and 2001 Cherokees have the coil on plug ignition system, so no plug wires. Is it throwing any codes? Does it only run rough when hot starting it?

BOOM.

So excited about the future of this jeep. Going to pick up a dodge dart for the fiancee sometime in the next month or two. And by the end of the summer the cherokee will have...

Prorock 44 front detroit locker
8.8 rear detroit locker
Sye
Iro 5.5 long arm lift.
Putbull tires.

I'm sure I am forgetting something...
