Here is a classic 1978 Jeep Cherokee 4X4.This Jeep has been sitting for a few years.The previous owner stopped driving it daily after purchasing a new car.He did start it now and then but basically let it sit hoping to restore it.  I was able to purchase the truck after he realized he would probably never have the time to work on it.He shared many fond memories about the Jeep as he reluctantly parted with it.I put some fresh gas in it,charged the battery and it fired right up with no smoke or noises.I drove it home about ten miles with no problems.It is equipped with the legendary 258cu.in. 6 cylinder and a 3 speed manual trans.It also has power steering,power disc brakes and Warn locking hubs,The brakes and clutch feel good.The transfer case,hubs,and four wheel drive work smoothly.The odometer shows 57,712mi.The title shows 255,400mi.I am not sure of the true mileage.The body still wears 90% of its original paint!There is obviously some significant lower body rust especially in the rear quarter panels.Much of the rear quarter rust could be covered by installing the factory type wheelwell flares.One of the tailgate hinges are broken but you can open and close the gate.  The floors have rust at some of the seams and a small sheetmetal patch near the driver seat.The frame looks solid but it is scaly and crusty near the rear bumper and hitch area.The front bench seat has been replaced with buckets.The original rear seat is in great condition.The headliner is falling and the carpets are shot.The dash and components are in  decent shape.This is a project truck that needs restoring!It would need a good going over before driving any serious distance.The belts,hoses,tires should be replaced due to age.The lights,signals,heater,defroster,wipers,guages,and even the power tailgate window all work!  I have the original owners manual and a service book. This is a project truck being sold as is with a clear NJ title.

Chrysler extending production of current Dodge Avenger, Jeep Wrangler, Grand Caravan

Wed, 24 Jul 2013 15:32:00 EST

Are you hesitant to pull the trigger on a brand new Dodge Avenger in hopes that a new one will be coming? Well, don't hold your breath. According to The Detroit News, Chrysler will be extending production of the current Avenger sedan through the end of 2015.
Originally, we heard that the company would kill the Avenger to better focus its midsize sedan efforts on the Chrysler 200 replacement. But then new reports stated there would indeed be an Avenger successor, and that we could see it as early as next January. This Detroit News report cites supplier sources confirming the extension of Avenger production, though Chrysler has not released an official statement on the matter.
These same suppliers say that the current Jeep Wrangler will live on through mid-2018 - that's right, another five years. The Detroit News reports that a replacement for the iconic, go-anywhere Jeep was due in mid-2016.

Jeep Wrangler Polar Edition coming to America

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 15:30:00 EST

Jeep originally took the wraps off its Polar Edition Wrangler at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, and at the time, we figured this would be a Europe-only affair. (Perfectly fine, since we US customers haven't exactly been lacking special edition Wrangler models over the years.) But now, and as Jeep says, just in time for winter, the automaker has announced that the ice cold Wrangler will be hitting North American showrooms in November.
Based on the Wrangler Sahara model, the Polar Edition can be had in either two- or four-door body styles, with a unique Hydro Blue paint job as the featured color. (Buyers can also opt for less-special Billet Silver and Bright White hues.) Other exterior enhancements include a body-colored hardtop, 18-inch gloss black wheels, the Powerdome (power bulge) hood, and unique decals all around the body.
But the Polar Edition isn't just about some paint and stickers. Jeep has fitted this Wrangler with a Dana 30 front axle and Dan 44 rear axle, as well as the Trac-Lok anti-spin electronic rear differential. Like all US-spec Wranglers, the Polar Edition uses Jeep's 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, producing 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Both a six-speed manual and five-speed automatic transmission are available.

Watch this 650-hp Hennessey Jeep Grand Cherokee go from 0-60 in 3.9 seconds

Tue, 14 May 2013 16:57:00 EST

Hennessey Performance Engineering has created an HPE650 package for the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT fitted with the 6.4-liter Hemi engine. When it leaves the showroom floor it has 470 horsepower and gets from 0-60 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds. When it leaves Hennessey's garage floor after the upgrade it has 650 horsepower - 530 hp at the wheels, according to Hennessey - and gets to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds on its way to running the quarter-mile in 12.6 seconds.
There's more than just a Roots-type supercharger bolt-on, with ported cylinder heads and high-flow headers among the many changes made to the engine. You can watch this pre-2014 facelift silver model prove its spec sheet on the drag strip in the video below.
