My friend bought an 84 or 86 cherokee that used to work at a grain elevator. It overheated constantly, but we got that fixed with a new radiator and learning about the weird cooling system. He built his own lift kit by changing some leaves in the rear and new coils in the front. This thing has probbaly 150000 miles and is in pretty rough condition. He offered to sell it to me the other day. $500 It has the 4.0, which I know is a tough engine, but he overheated it more than a few times, and I'm sure its had a rough life. Automatic tranny seems ok, but it does hesitate going into reverse. He ripped the interior out, smelled like rotten grain, but the seats are still in it. The main problem is the brakes, there pretty much arent any. There is a constant hissing that gets much worse when you apply the brakes. We think it is the power brake booster, any ideas? The body is rough, but I'm just wanting a play toy to run the trails with. So, do you think it's worth $500?
