Way over priced. Looks like it is SOA in front and a SF in back. Body is too beat up for the price they are asking. IMHO.

unless it's got a pair of ARBs in some 1ton axles, and a f/i 350, don't give him more than 1200. If you really want a cherokee, start looking further away. Craigslist lets you search the whole country! lots of FSJs in the reno/tahoe/carson area.

That's definetly a lot more reasonable. Only difference between Cherokee and Wagoneer is number of doors.
You can probably get him down to 2000 or 1500 depending on what's wrong with front axle.

Yes and that grill on that old Wagoneer is really nice. Either way I want to do a Chevy conversion.
Any opinion on a big block or small block Chevy with muncie 4?? ( in the Wagoneer or Cherokee)

I'd mob that original 327/tranny/tcase til it went kaput. Then I'd do a built 350/700r combo.
That front axle might be closed knuckle.
