MOBBiNs 2001 Cherokee build
 
Hi everyone my name is Sam and im from Alaska! Im kinda new to Jeeps. Its my second Cherokee and this thread is just to keep the progress of my jeep. Its a 2001 Cherokee classic bought it from CARR Chevy in Vancouver Wa. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone....:thumbdown:

I got into jeeps after my long addiction to fast Subarus. I wanted to try something new so I went out and found a low mileage black XJ

Spring 2010

My old 98 Cherokee (all stock with 30 inch BFGs):

After 2,500 miles of owner ship my jeeps in the shop. The head gasket went out. They sent the head off to the machine shop and found 2 cracks. :(

I bought a replacement head from Alabamacyclinderhead.com

I'm glad I bought the extended warranty. The only thing I'm paying for is my 50$ deductible and the head.

Right around where this piture was taken ,about 170 miles out of anchorage, my water pump started leaking pretty bad. I limped her in to the jeep dealership today to find out my main rod bearings are shot. That explains my low oil pressure. I ended up getting a new long block with 76,000 miles installed free under the warrenty

What's next?

Subarus with Jeeps are the perfect combo. It's always a hard choice choosing what one I want to drive each day. The subaru usually wins because it's faster and more economical (depending on how I drive it)

Oh my god that thing is awesome :drool:

Kinda looks like mine, except mine is smaller!

Thanks man. Do you have a build thread?

Nice looking Jeep! I also have the XJ and the Suby (3rd one), but no side by side pics, and it's not an STI:crying: What part of AK are you in?
