What model of XJ do i have????

I have had my XJ for almost a year now and i was under the impression it was the sport model it is tagged with sport badges etc. But i went to the dealer gave my vin# and got my build sheet and it says it is a country?? How do you tell between the 2 models?

Ya im very confused I cant tell on the lift it came with a 3" lift installed and the guy i bought it from was the second owner he picked it up from the dealer he was a mechanic there and the original owner some old lady brought it in and did a trade in and it was in such good shape with low miles he picked it up. but he said he had it for 2 months and did nothing but the lift?

Hi to all Jeep enthusiasts out there!

I'm looking for the right XJ for me and since this thread is about identifying models I try to hijack it

During my search I discovered this one




What makes me curious is that the dealer is talking about a "94 Jeep Cherokee XJ Limited Special Executive Edtion" (Does SE stand for special executive? I never noticed the "special" decor on other jeeps.
Furthermore it's getting promoted as "low number of units - 1500 world wide with this optic. The difference to the standard limited is the special dark red color, three-part BBS rims /w 255 wide tires and a complete body kit including front and rear bumper and different side skits PLUS double sport exhaust...and needless to say the typical extras and electrip helpers, + automatic gearbox.

I'm totally clueless if this is a seperate edition or what's the correct name of the color. Any ideas would be highly appreciated. I can't imagine that it was sold exstock as seen on the pics.

Exactly the jeep is located in Germany. I have only posted two pics since it's most likely not allowed to "promote" any (professional) sales with links, even if it wouldn't be my intention.

Added interior pic.

WOW! That is a gorgeous Cherokee! I love the burgundy color! Whoever had it must have garaged it and drove it very little! How many miles on the odometer?

The trim level you have may be a Germany only trim level. I can't find any info on it yet, but i am at work so i don't have time right now to look into it.
