Clean, double duty 94 Grand Cherokee
UPDATES: I put on a set of smaller, street friendly tires on stock wheels. Also aligned it. Now drives straight down the road, no hints of wobble or bump steer. Can work out which set of tires, or both, go with during sale. Also now considering trade offers. Prefer stock, lower mile Jeeps. Maybe something fun to drive.
Just gonna copy my craigslist ad to simplify this for me:

I BOUGHT THIS JEEP TO REPLACE MY TRAIL ONLY GRAND CHEROKEE. MY PLANS WERE TO PUT ALL THE AFTERMARKET PARTS ON IT THAT WERE ON THE OTHER ONE SO I COULD HAVE ONE THAT I COULD DRIVE EVERY DAY AND STILL BE AN EXTREMELY CAPABLE WHEELER. HOWEVER, SINCE SELLING MY LAST WRANGLER I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED ANOTHER. SO I DECIDED THAT BEFORE I START WHEELING THIS ONE AND BANG IT UP, ILL SELL IT AND START SAVING FOR ANOTHER TJ WRANGLER.
WILLING TO CONSIDER TRADE OFFERS. PRIMARILY LOOKING FOR STOCK, LOWER MILE JEEPS. MAYBE SOMETHING FUN TO DRIVE

I havent registered it since I bought it, so I havent driven it much on road, just occasionally near my house. I have gone 65 down some rougher roads, never had any death wobble, but it does bump steer sometimes and the tires are pretty unevenly worn so they cause a little vibration at certain speeds. Could use an alignment too, will need one anyway once the crossover steering is installed. With a good set of tires it will be a great driver.
Im planning on getting interior shots after work tomorrow. Wont be able to get to it today.
Also, I forgot to mention in the ad, I have a clean and clear title for it. Just never spent the money to register it since I didnt have a good set of tires to use on the street since I built it.

Interior pics added. Also took one of the cluster with it running and during bulb check for proof of CEL bulb working, but no codes tripping it. Took it for another drive today. No death wobble. At higher speeds, 65ish, it started to shake the wheel a bit, but im certain thats tire related. They are pretty rough, and not balanced. Anything below that and it drove fine other than a little bit of drift and the steering wheel off center. AC still blowing cold, even in the 90 degree weather we had today!
