Default 1997 keeping. please delete

I have a 1997 Cherokee with 201xxx miles on the body, motor has been replaced with a lower milage 4.0, solid AW4 auto trans, NP231J with a fresh HD SYE with less than 10 miles. Jeep has very little rust, small spot on rear hatch. floors are solid and drivers rocker has a small hle underneath and the passenger side is solid.

Rear axle is a Ford D60 with disc brakes. Has Ruff Stuff anti wrap spring perches and the brakes are basically brand new. It is also welded and has 3.55 gears

Front axle is a Ford HP D44. It has a tie rod made of 1.5x.25 com that is over the knuckle with 3/4 heims. the axles has a truss for the upper link and hydro assist mount. The axle uses ballistic fab mounts with fully captured coils, double shear shock mounts. the lowerlink mounts have skids underneith. There is a draglink also made of 1.5x.25 with 3/4 heims and is bent at the box to be parrell with the ground. The axle has less then 300 miles since new ball joints, ujoints, calipers, rotors, spindle bearings. all bearings are timkn and seals are National. the pinion seal is a little leak but have a national nib. wheen rebuilt the brake brackets and knuckles were media blasted and painted with self etching primer. The whole axle has been wire wheeled and primed as well then all shot with flat black paint. The diff cover has been plated with 3/16ths and 1/8th. I have extra brake hardware and set of shafts. The axle has Warn Premium lock outs it has 3.55 gears and a welded carrier.

Track bar is 1.5" DOM with heims and has HD bracket.

Rear suspension is RE 4.5" leaf springs with 1" Currie HD shackles and 2" block

Front is a custom built 3 link with 2x.25 DOM lowers and 7/8x3/4 heims and 1.5x.25 DOM upper on drivers side with 3/4x3/4 heims. Uses 5.5" RE coils. Also a really nicely built custom HD crossmember

Tires are 35x12.50x16.5 BFG MT with good tread on black steel wagon wheels.

The jeep runs great and flexes awesome.

Also has a JCR steering box spacer with a newer steering box.

TNT unibody stiffeners.

All the brake lines are brand new.

This is a feeler thread and im not sure if i want to get rid of it yet, i just finished the build this week and its my daily driver.

I would consider trades for a 97 and newer lifted extended cab Silverado truck or what else do you have of value?

Cash price is $5800 OBO
