Hey guys first time Cherokee owner (previous CJ owner). I love this jeep. It's a 91 Laredo w/ A/C for $1k. Turns out I'm enjoying it more than I expected. I came across a 4x4 donor car and while I have the tools, the mechanical know-how, and ability to squeeze a v8 into a Mazda RX-7, I'm sure I can handle swapping a the jeep to 4x4. However I'm sure there are some of you out there who have done it and am curious if you think I should just go out and buy myself a 4x4 and sell the 2x4. Keep in mind it's a running/driving 4x4 for $400 which I could probably knock the price down even more. Just curious what your opinions are. Here's a pic.

Already started playing around with it today haha

What condition is the 4x4 in? That 2 wheeler looks to be in pretty good shape!

4x4 Swap


It's pretty clean inside and out. The body has 170~ miles, drivetrain has ~90k miles. I bought it from a co-worker who had it since 1998 and he was so anal about keeping it clean that I just can't see him taking it off road. Haha infact he almost freaked when I showed him those pictures.


The donor car... exterior looks like crap. Missing a rear window. But it runs and drives fine.

Also thanks for the link,
