Default (Project Name TBD) 1998 Cherokee...another kid's project

A giant "thank you" to Travis (mrclean) for basically managing the entire purchase/pick-up of this XJ for me. Thanks man! I really appreciate all the help, and it was great seeing you today.

It's a 200K+ mile 1998 XJ Classic that was originally from Missouri, and it doesn't even have so much as any surface rust on the underside. That's the VERY good. The less-than-good (but still not horrible). It's throwing some codes (Injector Circuit Open Cylinder 4, Cylinder 4 Misfire Detected). The engine will likely be pulled & parted out/sold, along with the AW4 trans, and the 8.25 rear axle (3.55 gearing).

More details to come soon, but this will be another daddy/daughter project. We have to have a little family meeting to work out the details. Stay tuned.


We threw Mira's wheels/tires (just to get those blingy 18s off ...see "before" shot below) & front bumper on the XJ for a beauty shot.



The 18" wheels/tires that came on the Jeep are listed for sale
HERE
. This is how it looked when we bought it.

Apparently you're not the only one, Shotgun. I have a guy coming out to look at them right now.

15 minutes before I posted this thread. They just sold. That's great...it helped knock the purchase price down a little.

This project thread is now dead.

Actually, it's just been moved into Mira\\\\\\\\\\'s Jeep Cherokee build thread HERE. Little sister Maeve is going to take over the 2-door Cherokee Sport build (
NEW build thread HERE
