There is a Cobra 29 CB system in the Jeep. It is cleanly installed. I would like to keep this but if you want it, we could work that out.
Jeep is super clean. It runs awesome and I would drive it anywhere. It was just in northern Michigan a month ago and it drove perfectly there and back. Fresh oil change, never off road. I have many receipts that account for almost all of the maintenance. The ride quality of the Old Man Emu lift is great. A little research and you will see just what an OME lift is all about. I did not intend to "off-road" this Jeep rather just have it to drive un-improved roads, camping off the beaten path and property searching in N. Michigan. This Cherokee is prepped the way it should have been from the factory. It is not overkill yet is ready to go many places.
What this Jeep could benefit from:
The rocker panels are rusty like 95% of the Cherokee's in the Midwest. It does have a small vibration under 40mph from the lift. A simple transfer case drop will cure this and will most likely be completed before you purchase it. It also needs an alignment. Its not bad, but recommended. I'm very picky about my quality of drive ability in my vehicles. You could get away with not doing either.
I am selling this to get back into auto-x this summer. I have enjoyed this Jeep and had intentions for camping in N. Michigan with it, as mentioned. My plans have simply changed and I have another Jeep that is just as capable for what I want to do.
I work on the north side of South Bend just off Cleveland Road and live on the south side of South Bend.

Price is $4200 and I am flexible; I'm ready to sell this.
