Almost Perfect Jeep Cherokee

Almost Perfect Jeep Cherokee

This is 4.0L HO Selectrac 4wd ,heavy duty tow/cooling set up..with AW4 trans.

I have been involved with 4wd's for 30years..traveling through some of the most rugged terrain in Australia.

For value for money and true off road ability there is no question...get a Jeep. Like I have may need to replace certain parts as things wear out, as they do in ALL vehicles. But oh! how satisfying.

I have replaced the following:
fan clutch,
water pump,
serpentine belt,
air cond. overhaul,(one pipe replaced)
front wheel hubs/bearings,
recon trans,transfer case, and
alternator rebuild.

The engine is indestructible. I keep it in perfect running order and change oil each 5000km (important).

Have added...
UHF 40 transmit/60 receive only radio,
roof rack,
driving lights (250w),
electronic brake controller,
aftermarket water temp gauge,
heated seats,
mp3 stereo,video,
storage area, and cargo netting.

I love my Jeep and it shows..good luck with yours.

Larry's Comment: I have said before...Wranglers may be Kings in the Jeep world...but the Cherokee XJ is still royalty in my opinion.

XJ info
by: Edmond

The XJ was selected by Robert Cumberford of Automobile Magazine as one of the 20 greatest cars of all time, calling it "possibly the best SUV shape of all time". It is the paradigmatic model to which other designers have since aspired.


In additional photos a 2" Rancho lift has been the rear...thanks Larry
