Default '99xj 4.0/aw4/231 D44,D60 ARB's 35's

First the pics, link to the last run I took with it.

Selling WITHOUT the winch and roof rack that you see in the pics, roof rack is gone, and I want to keep the winch.

Asking $8,500 Jeep books at 4,700 in fair condition, about 4k in the axles.
Would possibly consider partial trade for chevy/dodge 60 front, 37-40" tires and wheels.

located in escanaba, mi (upper peninsula)

-One front brake is dragging a little, haven't looked into it, but it seems to be an issue w/ the caliper and rotor alignment, possibly hub or spindle needed to fix.
-No e-brake cables currently
-Bright's don't work, haven't looked at it, been that way since I bought it.
-Needs an alignment
-leans to the drivers side a little in the rear, spring issue, seems only cosmetic though.
-Could use some camber shims installed to correct the camber some, which are included, last time it was aligned they said it was ok, but I didn't agree.

The rest of the specs:
1999 Jeep Cherokee classic sport 4 door 4wd 78,000 miles

Front suspension: Claytonís long arms, and Rubicon express 7Ē front springs. Front axle is a í78 ford F250 Dana 44 narrowed to around 65Ē and completely rebuilt. Rubicon express brackets were welded on and the C's rotated, along with a JKS relocated track bar mount. It has 5.13 gears and an ARB air locker. Sky manufacturing crossover steering arm with sky tie rod and drag link using 1 ton TREís. JKS trackbar narrowed to fit. Bilstein shocks.

Rear suspension: Custom concoction of springs done by the previous owner, longer shackles were added, and a 2 inch block to level, with bilstein shocks. Rear axle is an Ď80ís F250 dana 60, stock width w/ new perches. 5.13ís and an ARB also. Axle was completely rebuilt also.

Wheels are black steel procompís. 17x9 (yes the jeep is now an 8 lug bolt pattern). Tires are hankook MTRT03ís 35x12.5x17ís, and are pretty much new still.

The main unibody rails on the xj were sleeved using ľĒ box tube cut into a c-channel shape and formed to the rails. It is bolted and plug welded to the unibody, and seam sealed along the edges. The front has had the JKS steering box reinforcing plates welded to the frame (inside and outside plates w/ sleeves for the steering box bolts). This has been done on the passenger side also. Front bumper is a protofab

ARBís are controlled with an ARB mini compressor. There is a K&N drop in filter, TB spacer, and a Gibson exhaust that has seen better days, but is still functioning fine. Husky rear floor liner, nice thick floor mats, bar in the rear to tie down cargo. BPI rear bumper. Skid row Gas tank skid. Front brakes are the big dual piston ford calipers, rear has a disk conversion w/ elderado calipers (still needís e-brake cables made up). Brake lines are earlís SS braided lines all around.

Jeep performs VERY well, flexes real good (could even stand longer front shocks). A/C is cold and heat works well. Has some scrapes and dents and dings, but isnít too bad overall. Drives down the road at speed w/o any problems, could use an alignment though
