Twisted Evil
So I went to see a Cherokee today to buy for Ann Marie.

It is a 1994 Cherokee 4x4. I have no Idea the Axles and TC.

It is an automatic.

He took us for a test drive off roading, It is bone stock. 200,000 miles on it. And well we got stuck. rofl

So, a couple of questions.

1. There is a Whining coming from the transfer case. He said he just got it rebuilt and the OLD and NEW parts meshing is making the noise. They will eventually wear to no noise? What could be the noise. It is a constant noise even in 2H.

2. The front doors had a problem opening and closing. The Cherokee is Rail-frame like the GC as I understand. Does this mean it might be bent out of shape.

Besides those questions the Jeep had NO rust on it and drove very well. Tires are crappy though. $110 for used in good nick.

Do you guys really think a 1994 Cherokee with just the whining as a problem is worth $1400??

i would stay away

This doesn't really make sense, but I've never rebuilt a t-case so idk

2. The front doors had a problem opening and closing. The Cherokee is Rail-frame like the GC as I understand. Does this mean it might be bent out of shape.

The "uni-frame" could be bent, the weld that hold the doors on could be in the proses of breaking, or they could be sagging

imho you should be able to find a better one for $1400

Thanks for the INFO

A transfer case is about $400 on EBAY.

How hard would it be to swap it out IN Case it does blow. Maybe i can get some $ knocked off. Its a nice jeep minus that problem.


Thanks for you help



Is rebuilding them easy??

Or is it like the 700r4 shock shock shock

Confused I want another Jeep!

Looking at a Cj tonight.




83 cj7 laredo ,it has the 258 6cyl. in it with a t5 and a dana 300 , hard top and hard doors ,rubicon express "4 suspension and "2 body lift , 37x14.50x15 maxxis creapy crawlers (90-95% tread)on mickey thomson street locks, 35 and 20 rears with 4.56 gears , front has a detroit locker , rear has an arb air locker with one peice axles , welded tubes and a rear disk break conversion. A few others things that must go with it , a 360 out of a 91 grand wagoneer ,needs a few things to be whole. i have a couple edelbrock parts for it ( cam and lifters , intake manifold , offroad carb , timing set). a painless wiring kit ,a tf999 auto trans and a steering column with shifter on column. Any ?'s let me know i'll gladly answer them for you.,

3500 seems a bit steep for a rusty, leaky, lifty, carby Jeep

Great deal. The mrs. wants a daily driver.....

what can I say to get her to say OK?

That CJ is definitely not a DD. You'll have to give her the ZJ.

The CJ looks to have more lift than 6". There's a lot of room between the 37" tires and flares. I'm at about 6" with my CJ on 33's and there's not even that much room.



The front end in that CJ is a D30, not a D35.

Without having to take all the other junk, $3500 isn't too bad. The only reason I call it junk, is that if you're not ready to swap in that wiring harness, 360 and auto tranny, it's useless to you.
