  • New Addition to the Family

    Went and picked up a 3rd XJ to add to our collection today. This one is a '97 Cherokee Country 2wd. Runs and drives good; just needs a little TLC to be a great daily driver. Not bad for $600 bucks!

    • '88 Cherokee Base - I don't actually drive it. It just sits in the driveway while I throw parts at it.
    • '90 Cherokee Laredo - Old and busted, but it'll get the job done!
    • '97 Cherokee Country - My wife wanted something "pretty".
    • '98 Cherokee Limited - My wife's old & busted parts rig.

    Score. Side note: XJ's have a 231 transfer case, right?

      The XJ came with 3 options: The NP231 was the most common. Prior to 1987, you will find the NP228, and later it was replaced with the NP242 as an option.

          The original plan was to build the '90 for my wife, but I think I'll let her have the '97, since she just wants a "looker". This leaves the '90 for me. It's rough enough that I can cut it up without feeling bad, and I can leave the '88 in relatively original condition.

          ...now I just need to find some portals!

            I would never feel bad cutting up an XJ maybe a CJ

              That was what I thought when I decided to buy one. Had it been in "average" condition, I would have no qualms with chopping it; but a Renix-era XJ in this condition, I had second thoughts after I started digging into it. They're not getting any more common.
