Well back in aug. 2006 I bought my cherokee from my cross country coach for $2000. It was bone stock with 123,xxx and had every receipt from anything done on the jeep.

1996 jeep cherokee, HO 4.0, HP D30/CHRY 8.35, NP231, 3.07's





gave it a sound system


Diamond Audio HEX components in the doors, and Rockford Fosgate Subs in the rear with a very nice kenwood deck!



got some tint on the windows and tested it out as a stocker:







I needed a new cat so i redid the whole exhaust in the 2.5" flavor


its seems like a lots of mods... but good
