Super 30 front, alloy shafts, 4.56's
Warn front bumper with Warn 9.5TI, near new, used about 6 times.
35" Cooper STT's on 15x17 inch rims, less than 500 miles on them, just purchased new about 5-6 weeks ago. (set of 4, on the Jeep)
35" BFG Mud Terrain KR's..grooved/cut racing tires. Bought from Greaves racing. Used two races. five tires, one brand new mounted on rim for above to be used as a spare.

Also have factory rims and tires
High lift jack
Very solid body for an '89! Was driven about 200 miles for a wheeling trip last winter, otherwhise salt free/winter free for the last 10 or so years.
It does have some rust in the drivers side floor board. Nothing serious, but it's there.
The air doesn't blow cold, the cruise doesn't work, the factory stereo works, but the antenna's broken.
The bad... Even with all of the new front end parts, trac bar, etc. It still has slight death wobble. Nothing serious and will run 70mph all day. The wobble comes and goes depending on the road, most notible on curves.
It runs hot, around 240 according to the gauge. It's been like that for years and does not overheat, runs all day. Just completed a 200 mile trip with it with no issues.
The rear shackles need to be extended as they bottom out, currently they need new bushings. If I was to keep it, they would be switched to Rubicon Express Boomerang/extended style shackles.
Runs fantastic, all fluids recently changed..250 miles or so on all fluids.
Would prefer not to part out. Thanks for the interest! Rick
By the way, I would trade..I'm looking for a very clean small stock 4x4, if you have a Tacoma, Ranger, Colorado, Nissan, even a Dakota, let me know what you've got. I'd give my Cherokee and an additional $4-5,000 in cash. If you've got the above mentioned worth around 8 grand and it's clean, let me know.
