It does look sharp. What are the plans for it?

He just started working, so for now its a daily driver.

The PO had it painted, it was Red with the silver flares and rockers.

Maaco special, so the doors jams are still red. He had pictures of it in the shop, there was no body work done, just sanded and painted. Had i not saw the pictures, I doubt I would have bought it.

We are the fourth owners. it came from Arizona about 6 or 7 years ago based on some of the reciepts we got.
182K on her and runs great.
It's a '92 Laredo, the window sticker came with it.
Power windows, locks mirrors and seats. No actual power at the seats, but using a jumper they worked fine getting them adjusted for my sons 6'4" frame!! Windows all work from the drivers door. I think i read it might be the lockout switch.

We've done a valve cover gasket, and reintalled a factory airbox. He got a new radio and some rear speakers for Xmas, we did that yesterday.

I'm sure he'd like to get more aggresive tires on it, but these things only have 5K on them.

I also found some Cherokee and the 4.0 HO badges for him for Xmas. Just need to throw them on.

I'd like to at least get front tow hooks on it. The rear reciever has a recovery hook in it for now.

Maybe we'll get some cheapo wallyworld lights for the roof rack. It has three cross bars so he can still use two to mount a bike rack on.

And those drips on the driveway are NOT from this, they are from my daughters Neon. Sending unit is leaking.

Since we did the valve cover gasket, there are no leaks at all!
I do realize I just jinxed it.
