Vehicle Name ZJ no. 4 That I've owned
Year 1995
Make Jeep
Model ZJ GRAND CHEROKEE
Color MOSS GREEN .. ABOUT A 1/4 OF THE CLEAR COAT IS PEA
Packages LIMITED 4X4
History My son finds it & says it perfect .. So $300.00 later it's mine .. His perfect & mine are 2 different things . 245K Miles.. 5.2 V8 NP249 & 4x4. It had not ran in over 5 years .. But it's tires were still up .
... So a new battery & Cleaned the fuel tank out . Put in some Lucus & Spun it over ... & IT STARTED UP.. WOW.
... SO I've drove it around some & that V8 will sure spin the tires.
Exterior
Moss Green ... This is the COLOR I've always wanted .. But it clear coat is pealing .
Driver side head lamp is broken out. I've discovered that the that I'll have to buy a new Crown Header & a new grill and I'm thinking I'll buy new head lamp complete assembles .. It'll look Much better with $150.00 of new parts.
... I'm planning a small lift of about 2 or 3 inches & a set of 31 10:50R15'S GOODYEAR WRANGLERS AUTHORITIES ..
& I'D LIKE TO FIND A STEAL FRONT BUMPER.

Interior
The seats are in good shape . No rips in this one .. Their that std Tan leather that most seem to have . It Must have a water leak or the heater core is leaking .. Pass side floor carpet look like crap. & The head liner is hanging everywhere .
.. Remember I've just got this Jeep .12/20/16 .. So I'm working on it.. ''Work in progress..''
IMAGIN the Radio doesn't work..
& The Heater is not blowing .. But all the elec. seat work .. Gauges all seem to work .

Under the Hood
As I said it's been setting for 5 years . So It appears to have some rat or squirrel damage on the wiring on the motor. I saw a lot of that when I worked at a Jeep dealership . But it doesn't miss ..
..As I said it's a 5.2 V8 nP249

Suspension
I plan on enough lift to get the tires below on it.
................
... The front drive shaft is missing so I'm expecting to swap out the NP249 . I EXPECT MY VISOUS Coupling is bad . While I work at the jeep stealership .. If the front drive shaft was missing then the transfer case was bad.AKA. Rule of Thumb.
.. I really want this Jeep to replace my no.1 daily driver . & Then I want it solid enough to take out to a big ranch I get to go to in New Mexico.It's about 75,000ac. I'd like to take the wife out there & show her & meet the old couple My Hunting Buddy & I have been visiting for the past 15 years.

Wheel and Tire
It has the Honey Comb wheels .. I like those They remind me of my old 1975 GRAND AM 400 THE BIRD.
& As I said I plan to add a set of 31x 10:50 R 15's Good Year Wranglers Authorities ..
