A LITTLE OVER 6 YEAR AGO I WENT LOOKING FOR A CHEROKEE BECAUSE MY WIFE WAS PREGNANT AND I DEFINATELY DIDNT WANT TO BE PUTTING THE KID IN THE BACK OF THE MAZDA SHE HAD AT THE TIME I DIDNT HAVE VERY MUCH MONEY BUT I LIKED THE CHEROKEE AND HAD HEARD THAT THE ENGINE WAS INDESTRUCTIBLE.. I FOUND AN EXTREMELY CLEAN 87 WITH 278,000 MILES ON IT..(YES I KNOW THATS A LOT BUT IT WAS A GOOD DEAL AND IT RAN AWESOME) SO I BOUGHT IT AND PUT A 3 INCH LIFT AND SOME NICE WHEELS AND TIRES ... SHE DROVE IT EVERY WHERE ON ROAD AND OFF .. ROAD TRIPS ,TOWING THE QUADS ETC ETC... WELL I JUST GOT RID OF THAT JEEP ABOUT 1 1/2 YEARS AGO BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH IT STILL RAN GOOD AND STILL PASSED SMOG I THOUGHT THAT 485,000 MILES WAS JUST PLAIN PUSHING MY LUCK (OH THE POWER STEERING WAS LEAKING AND THE FRONT SUSPENSION , BALL JOINTS ETC WERE GOING TO NEED TO BE REPLACED).. GRANTED I DONT KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THE ENGINE WASNT REPLACED BEFORE I GOT IT BUT IT DIDNT LOOK LIKE IT UNDER THE HOOD WHEN I GOT IT... SO LETS SEE I BOUGHT THE TRUCK FOR $2200 (I KNOW LOOKING BACK I SHOULDNT HAVE PAID THAT MUCH)
A CRANK SENSOR THAT WAS LIKE $35 AND WHEELS TIRES AND A LIFT THAT COST ME ABOUT $1200 SO WE'LL SAY ABOUT $3450 I WAS IN IT NOT INCLUDING MAINT REG AND GAS AND WHEN I WAS DONE DRIVING APPROX 200,000 MILES I STILL GOT $1500 FOR IT ....
I WOULD SAY IT WAS THE BEST $2000 I HAVE EVER SPENT....
