I found 4 or 5 locally for sale last night, trying to talk a friend into a Cherokee over a Wrangler haha. One was a straight mud bogger but was pretty clean considered, had a welded D44 rear and mini spool in the front on 33" boggers! Perfect for DD duty IMO

When the tire shop calls you to let you know they didn't put your tires on because they couldn't get your Jeep started.

Going through Costco and I see "Salt Eraser". I say "screw that, I want Rust Eraser!" Wife replies "Yes honey but then you wouldn't have any Jeep left"

It hurts, but it's true.

When you put in a brand new fuel pump and still have to pump the gas to start it

Yeah, thats been bad for 3 weeks now, i by passed it and installed push button start, ran wires directly to the starter and from the 12V power in the dash. Only downfall is it can be started in any gear, and the key doesn't do much since you can still turn the tumblers with your hand.

When you watch your oil pressure and temp gauge like a hawk.
When the gauge says 0 oil pressure you automatically slap a new oil sending unit on because it's the 10th time it's happened
when you're friends' jaws hit the floor when they hear you and other jeepers saying their cherokee with 175k on it is "just broken in"
When you have to go thru the ritual of shaking the gear shift in park to get your jeep to start.
When, despite trying to explain, friends still don't understand what you see in that "noisy, inefficient, slow box of yours" some people never get it haha

Stop shaking the selector and replace or refurbish the neutral/park/switch. Easy fix

Yeah, we've tried for a couple years. It works great for about 3 months but acts up again. Been thru 4 of them. I think i'm gonna try to clean this one. and check the alignment of that arrow.

Can't speak to the >98 model year but that switch technology is on par with the slot cars of yesteryear. The contact points or shoes are encased in dielectric grease. Tiny springs supply pressure for engagement. Over time the grease stiffens with gunk and the contact points get "bound up" in the race. Clean out the old grease, clean the contacts with an eraser or steel wool, replace the grease and reassemble.
The whole procedure is spelled out in detail with pics and everything here and most likely on every jeep forum.

Just had to replace mine after it completely went out and couldn't start after going back and forth between park and neutral. Good bye $300
