'01 XJ poser pics

Here’s my 2001 XJ Sport – 4.0L, AW4, NP231, Chrysler 8.25”.
My grandfather had identical Cherokees from 1984 to this 2001 – every year he’d trade it in for a new one after about 30,000 miles. I never really figured out why… always a Sport (or similar) model, white with a gray interior, 4WD, power windows & locks.

He took his Jeeps everywhere from Belize to New Zealand to the Arctic Circle, and I was fortunate to ride along often for the past 17 years. I inherited the XJ from him, so I have a really soft spot for it. It probably gets more TLC than 95% of kids in this country.

Here are a few pics from last month.

Mirror Lake, on the Continental Divide in the Rockies


Canon City, CO (I hate mud)


Access road to Onion Creek Trail in Moab, UT (XJ in front)


Pike’s Peak, CO






So far, in a 100% stock XJ, I’ve traversed Poison Spider Mesa, Steelbender, Moab Rim, most of Hell’s Revenge, Sevenmile Rim, Fins & Things (12 times), Porcupine Rim, Chicken Corners, Golden Spike (with a little rock stacking on the Golden Crack), and a couple dozen others I can’t remember… people are always surprised at how nimble and capable a stock XJ can be. Just us two XJs out on the trail, usually. Pulling out clueless tourists in abused rental TJs and posers in H2s is always fun.

I expect to add an OME 2" system, 30" BFG A/T KOs, and IPF H4s soon.

Very nice man. And the scenery...WOW. I need to move out to the Colorado...there are no stinkin trails here in the east! My friend just put an OME suspension on his TJ and he loves it (and I want one).

Mud is fun....until you have to clean it off. I like it just because of the looks you get after playing in it!

Thanks! I need to load my Moab pictures for the past few years... much better scenery than these. I ahve one of the XJ flexed at the top of Fins 'n' Things with red fins and canyons visible for miles.

Here's another from Pike's Peak at about 9,000'. No clouds yet (like in the above pic, hehe).

It has often been said that it's usually the Indian and not the arrow.

Nice XJ, reminds me of my wife's old 01.

Scenery is great as well.

Here's my all-time favorite pic.



Here are some more pics. All are kinda crappy resolution, though. Oh well.

9000 feet

Did you notice any power loss when running at 9000 feet with you XJ? I live in PA, so altitude isn't much of a problem. Just wondering if you have to do anything with the engine/fuel mixture at that altitude. Some of the best scenery shots I've ever seen! Nice job.

Power decreased only slightly. Even with a full load of cargo and three people, the 4.0L had plenty of torque to lug us up the mountain. Of course, I wasn't trying to pass cars in top gear or anything, but I maintained a decent speed up steep grades with no difficulty.

Overall, it did better than the people on board. Once I got to the top (about 14,400ft), the Jeep was doing great but I was dizzy and nauseous.

In the past, I've made the trek towing a 2200lb camper. That required a few stops along the way - it never overheated and has a tranny cooler, but just in case. Same with the ZJ.
