"You can set my jeep on fire and roll it down a hill,
But I still wouldn't trade it for a Coupe DeVille."
March is Mallcrawin’ month in the COTM contest and these jeeps are the kind that turn my head every time so I think you’ll enjoy.
This month we have 7 great XJ’s to check out and it's up to you to help decide who will be this year’s March Mallcrawlin’ Cherokee Of The Month. Take the time to check 'em out and when you find your favorite, show your support and approval by casting your vote.

Here are your March 2013 COTM entries in the order received. Let’s get this started and see where it goes!
Optional: The rear shocks I’m running are actually mid-90's Explorer OE replacements. Went in with slight modding and around 5" longer than factory and inexpensive. Also removed door molding for a cleaner look.

Optional: I bought this Jeep from my mother in law. She got rid of her old 4 Runner (Trusty Rusty) and saw this at her work with a for sale sign on it. She bought it next day from the original owner. The day I saw it, about a week later I said "I call dibs on this one when you sell it". She drove it for about a year, and popped the rad on the highway. While it was in for repairs she fell in love with a Mercedes Benz SUV, bought it and sold me the XJ the following week.
Sadly she passed away from a heart attack only a few short months later... so this Jeep is kind of a Heirloom Jeep I guess? My wife will not let me sell it (not that I want to) even though she says she hates it. Really I think she likes it, but can’t admit it?
