I think all 2 dr owners and most 4dr owners have considered the removable top. I never dove into it due to the fear it wouldn't seal well.

It's easier to just take an MJ camper shell and cut it down to length if you want a removable hard top. There was a guy over on Pirate that turned the original roof into a removable hard top, but it took a TON of fabwork and the pics of it are all dead.

HA well with the amount of cherokees in general there are, you can have plenty of trial and error, although they are a bit more expensive due to cash for clunkers youd have to have a stack of cash to learn that way. and even if they dont seal correctly you could still turn it into an awesome beater

Since I live in MT, we get our nice days one day at a time. I'd never take it off.

I looked long and hard for my 5 speed. I had very important specs I wanted & wouldn't sacrifice.

4 door, manual everything, 5speed, decent interior. I ended up with a 87, with all matching criteria, paying 1800. For it, pain ****, interior ok, some stains, pukegoat/231, manual everything, clean title, 400 worth of registration/smog or work to smog it. Loved it when I drove it! Picked up a wrangler ax15/231. Swapped to a 242 for the full time for snow driving. The wrangler trans is clocked higher from the factory..common mod for cherokee guys, wranglers trans have it done already. I love this thing, lowest thing below the rail is the high flow cat & crossmember.

I guess my point was all 5 speed seem to be rare out here.. I settled for a o ld pukegoat and swapped a ax15 because I couldn't find a decent 5 speed ho in my price range.

I want a black 2-door 99 5speed 4.0 something fierce. I'd probably trade my built XJ for a stock one no joke.

My story: I got asked to help build a pole barn. The old man we built it for had 16 Chevy trucks which he traded for labor. Aside from the trucks, a '95 2dr sport, 4.0 HO, 5 spd. I worked for him for 1 year and he signed over the Jeep.
