Cool New DD- 97 Cherokee

Since I am probably insane, I sold my 84 fiero that my dad and I did a complete motor and trans rebuild on. Was running very well...
And I bought this hunk of junk


Bought a new set of wheels and tires. Have new bumpers and plastics for it (not on yet). Power steering pump and idler pulley replaced. Needs a very small lift, interior cleaned, and probably the hood repainted.


Where we're at now.

17 and I can't stop buying crap. yay me.

Getting an inch, don't want it to look lifted... I know I'm crazy.

Nice! I really like that color. I may buy another one sometime...
They really do seem to be reliable. I have 16x,000 miles on mine, does fine. How many miles on yours?

In my family we have a 2000 jeep grand Cherokee that has been passed around and has 210,000 miles on it. I just paid for a new radiator and a new ignition module, other than the basic oil changes its been running great.

I really like that body style Cherokee and might pick one up as a winter beater whenever I get a house. But around this area they all overpriced IMO for a decent one.

I love those boxy Cherokees, my fave is the rare 2 door model. I was living FL in the 90s and this was when gas was still cheap I had the chance to buy a 2 door rear drive with the 4.0 6 and auto tranny but the guy wanted too much $$$ for it :(.

I'm thinking of selling our Jeep Grand Cherokee, mom said she wants something that is better on gas. I'm against it because it floods here in Houston and I know that as long as she drive the Jeep she will do way better than most cars.

I'm thinking the same thing, but nieces are trying to muscle their way into it. If I keep it, I'm going to lift it and throw some 35 inch tires on it.

Woot interior cleaned, flairs painted. New radio should be here Tuesday, I have my wires run for the amp, so I can put my temporary subs in.


My favorite thing on the Jeep.


Now my real gem.
