What do you guys think of this '98?

Hi fellow Jeepers

Saw this on CL and thinking about going to have a look at it. Wondering what the interior looks like. One thing I noticed is the pinion angles look good from the pics so this could be a quality build. Chryco 8.25" and HP30?

Does look like a lot of time and money spent underneath on what looks like a rust free Cherokee. Strong axles, long arm suspension, lots of spring travel, should be a blast off road. Professionally built but no two builds are quite the same, the builders do anything and everything you want.

220,000 miles on it so do not expect a super clean interior. Possible you could find a Limited interior for it but Jeep leather was not that good back in the day, and getting hard to find. The mileage also needs to be figured when you look at engine and transmission, Jeep engines can take that mileage IF looked after.

In modified Jeeps you often find a compromise on highway performance and fuel economy, it may lean a lot in corners and struggle to maintain 70mph. As a daily driver, you may find it too compromised, as a weekend ride maybe not. It is telling that the owner has not been using it.

Painted white, the most forgiving and easiest color to sprayover. Have a real good look at panel fit and whether the engine bay and door reveals are the same color. The inner wings are hard to say, may have been white originally.

Is it worth $11k? I think it is telling that there are no interior shots nd he does not drive it so, if you can work on interiors and do not find it impossible to drive every day, you may get a good value well built Cherokee. $11k is not a lot of money in modified Jeeping but it needs to be exactly what you want, or you waste money buying someone else's dream Jeep.
