1996 ZJ Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0 in RI 2 lift/31s

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

4.0L straight six, automatic, 4x4 with selec-trac (2wd/4wd with center diff lock/4wd without center diff lock/4-LO). NO warning lights are on. Oil just changed.

160,400mi. This is correct mileage, previous owner screwed up the title so will may come up as "true mileage unknown" if registered in MA. Currently registered in RI which does not title cars older than 2001. This is not a problem for other states, they will issue a title based upon a bill of sale and previous RI registration. Registration is current and in my name.

RI inspection good through 12/2019

New since 2013/140,000mi:
-ALL fluids changed, oil changes done every 5k miles
-All eight control arms and 16 bushings replaced
-Brake pads, rotors, calipers at all four wheels
-2" budget boost lift spacers
-Four Bilstein 5100 series offroad shocks
-Five oversize 31x10.5x15" tires on factory alloy wheels. Spare tire still fits in normal location in trunk.
-Bluetooth/USB stereo
-Alpine speakers
-Rust in LF wheel well cut out/welded to repair
-Rubber floor mats
-A/C compressor (needs to be resealed at hose junction, when sealed AC works very well)
-Distributor cap and rotor
-Serpentine belt
-Oil pressure sensor
-ABS sensor
-Radiator and hoses
-Added external transmission cooler with new cooler lines
-ALL brake lines are new. Most are stainless. All flex brake hoses are new.
-New e-brake shoes. E-brake needs adjustment but works.
-Both front wheel bearings and both front U-joints
-Exhaust from cat back
-Front and rear swaybar end links (fronts are extended version from a Wrangler to deal with the lift)
-Trailer hitch and 7-pin trailer wiring
-Crank position sensor
-Added off road tow hooks in front
-Added factory fog lights
-Added Jeep mudflaps
-Rebuilt circuit board for onboard computer, all warnings work appropriately

-Leaks transmission fluid. Drives fine, just needs to be topped up occasionally. Trans does not slip.
-Headliner is sagging above driver

I drove this to New Haven last week and to central NH the week before. It's an old Jeep, but it's reliable and will get you anywhere in any weather. I've spent a ton of time and money on this Jeep. It's way better mechanically than most of them out there.

Please email me [email protected] if you are interested. I’m not on here as often these days.
