Burton, Ohio, United States
|I recently finished a frame off restoration on an 85 CJ7. This Jeep is immaculate. I have listed the details below. I have been involved in Jeeps for 20 years and I have to say, this is one of the nicest Ive seen. If times were different, I would keep it for myself. Im not trying to sell when I say I truly impressed myself with this build. On the highway and around town, this Jeep is an absolute blast to drive. Here are some specs:The interior is black denim and all brand newBestop seats - front reclining, rear fold and tumbleBoth axles have been rebuilt with all new seals, gears, and bearingsDana 44 in the rearNew brakes all aroundNew stainless brake linesNew fuel linesNew wire harness (painless)All new Stainless Steel trimNew tilt steering columnAll new guagesNew paintNew bestop supertop with two piece soft doors and tinted windows33x12.5 mickey thompson MTZ tires (5 of them)15x10 mickey thompson classic II wheelsRear tire swing out carrierRebuilt AMC 360bored .30 overmild cam from EdelbrockEdelbrock intakeNew Holley 4 barrel carbHEI ignitionNew clutcht-176 4 speed TransmissionAll new u-jointsPower brakesPower steeringIn-frame headersCustom dual exhaust with hooker mufflers exits the rearFiberglass body/fenders/windshield frameSteel hood/grillframe sandblasted and coated with POR 15 rust protectionNew 4wd Hardware 4 liftNew tuffy security console with stereoNew windsheildI started with a bare frame and built the Jeep from there.

Consumer Reports has just rendered its verdict on two of the more important cars to launch this year - the Mazda3 and the Jeep Cherokee. Considering the value a "Recommended" rating carries with the public and the viciously competitive markets these two cars compete in, Consumer Reports' view could have some impact on their initial success.

For Mazda, that's a good thing. CR spoke quite highly of the Zoom-Zoom brand's compact sedan and hatch, testing both models, and citing the excellent fuel economy and snickety-snack manual shifter as high points. Downsides to the 3 included a ride that is agile but "nervous," a bit too much noise and a cramped back seat. Still, the 3 was good enough to earn its place in the ranks of the "Recommended."
The Jeep didn't fare quite so well, with CR calling the polarizing CUV "half-baked." Although both engines were tested, the magazine called the 2.4-liter four-pot underpowered and its nine-speed automatic unrefined and unresponsive. That's particularly damning, considering the 9AT's role in future Chrysler products, including the extremely important 200. Overall, the Cherokee missed out on the coveted "Recommended" rating.
Among the design concepts Jeep has prepared for Beijing Motor Show this year are a pair of Cherokees dressed up in contrasting schemes.

In one corner we have the Sageland concept pictured above, drawing its inspiration from Shangri-La with an Ivory Peal tri-coat and bronze trim for the grille, fascia appliqués, roof rack, sunroof, mirror caps and exhaust tips. Inside it's all earth tones with light gray Nappa leather seats and red and blue top-stitching inspired by traditional Chinese themes.
Meanwhile the Urbane concept (pictured right) takes the Cherokee in a different direction with steel blue metallic paintjob and black accents. Inside it adopts the theme of Chinese calligraphy with Piano Black accepts and dark red Nappa leather.
Behind the vanguard of numerous Jeep models, two Chryslers, a smattering of Fiats and Alfa Romeos and local production through a joint venture with Guangzhou Automotive Group (GAG), Fiat Chrysler wants to increase sales in China more than six-fold by 2018. The group sold 130,000 cars in China in 2013, the aim for 2018 being 850,000 cars.
Ultimately it's expected that the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, Wrangler, Renegade, the coming Grand Wagoneer and a sub-Renegade-sized crossover will either be built in or exported to the People's Republic. The Chrysler Town & Country and 300 will join the export list in 2016 and 2018 respectively, according to a report in Automotive News.
With a number of those vehicles not in production or perhaps even envisaged yet, and others not due on the local market until 2018, it will be interesting to see how Fiat Chrysler plans to achieve the target in the specified timeframe. The joint venture with GAG builds two products now, the Dodge Dart-based Fiat Viaggio launched two years ago - supposedly designed just for China - and the just-launched Fiat Ottimo, a hatchback version of the Viaggio. Fiat projected 300,000 Viagio sales in its first two years, that number has been adjusted downward to 94,000 and there doesn't appear to be an analyst alive that sees a good future for Fiat in China's overrun mainstream market. Still, last year's 130,000 group sales in China is a huge jump from 2012 sales of 66,000 units, but less than half the 300,000 units it projected.
