Default 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9, HAS TO GO

Hey there guys, well low and behold times are getting tough and I have to cut some things from the stable. It has 162 or 163K miles on it as of today. Interior is clean, no rips or anything like that. Vehicle is located in Kalamazoo, Michigan

Modifications:

SUSPENSION:
  • All Poly bushings in the front arms, front arms have been boxed as well
  • New track bar
  • new front Monroe sensatrac shocks in the front
  • Hotchkis lower rear arms
  • new sway bar end links

EXHAUST AND INTAKE:
  • K&N cold air intake
  • Magnaflow 3 inch Cat
  • Magnaflow 3 inch Muffler
  • Kolak 3 inch exhaust with modified original 5.9 tip
  • New Mopar O2 sensors
  • Custom made 2.5 inch down pipes and y pipe

IGNITION:
  • MSD 6AL and MSD factory replacement coil interfaced correctly
  • Magnacore wires
  • Autolite plugs
  • New Brass cap and rotor

FIXES:
  • new radiator
  • new waterpump
  • new idler pulley
  • new Gatorback belt
  • Taurus Efan upgrade in original housing
  • New upper raditor hose
  • New Radiator cap
  • New Pioneer speakers all the way around

OTHER THINGS
  • SCT Tuner with three loads from Sean aka Hemifever
  • New poly motor mounts
  • New trans mount
THINGS THAT WILL COME WITH IT
  • Remote start, already installed forgot to mention it above
  • Both sets of factory keys
  • 4 BRAND NEW balljoints
  • almost new spare tire cover
  • Mopar JEEP logo valve covers
  • Used Dana 30 Front diff with good center section and fresh fluid for rebuild or whatever you like
  • Original 5.9 fan and another Taurus fan
  • another set of factory front springs
  • factory set of front A arms
  • the rest of the poly bushings to complete the suspension which is just the rear upper arms and track bar in the back
  • Michelin tires are almost brand new on it, maybe 5 or 6 thousand miles on them.
  • Fresh alignment

KNOWN ISSUES

  • Coolant sensor fail on VIC
  • Memory mirrors flakey sometimes
  • Front diff has started to whine, hence the good used one to go with it
  • rear hatch has started to rust a bit on the bottom, someone tried to fix it and did a shitty job
  • small leak on the top of gas tank when REALLY full, suspect the gasket is shot, rear skid plate and tow hitch removed to fix this, just didn't get around to it, all these items will come with it.
  • the steering is pretty tight, the previous owner had a new steering box put in before I bought it and I would suspect that it is adjusted to tight, it just won't return to center, not bad once you get used to it, but should probably be checked out. Alignment is spot on.

I think that is it, and please don't let the mileage scare you off, the previous owner put ALOT of highway miles on it. It runs like a top, shifts perfect and all that. The body is in great shape no rust, except for what is mentioned above, the front left fender could be changed out as there is a slight bend in it behind the headlight from a previous accident and the paint is peeling away. Also the original hood will come with it if you want it, the front left side is dinged up pretty bad, I put a used one on it that wasn't as bad, but it isn't perfect by any means.

I will get some more pictures this weekend of it, I am going to get it cleaned up some more. Please there has got to be someone out there that wants a great nine to do whatever with. I really need the money and I am not saying that either, for forum members 4000 or best offer, and I am pretty firm on that, this is what I need to pay the tax man, so please help me out. Hate to sound desperate, but that is all that I am left with. :) I wouldn't sell it if I didn't have to that is for sure. My price is EXACTLY plus a little of what I have into it for parts and no labor. Let me know on here or email me at mfetcko at charter dot net. All the work was done by me and I take great pride in that and I don't half ass anything. Let me know if there are any questions.

Thanks and have a great holiday. I will post more pictures by the end of the week. Again 4000 or best offer if it was missed above.
