Here is a running and driving classic 1978 Jeep Cherokee 4X4.This Jeep has been sitting around 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 someday. I was able to purchase the truck after he realized he would probably never have the time and he did not want it to sit any longer. 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 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 like they should.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 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 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 fixer upper being sold as is with a clear NJ title.

eBay Find of the Day: Jeep Comanche Zombie Response Unit

Sat, 02 Feb 2013 10:00:00 EST

We've seen some pretty fantastic apocalypse vehicles in our day. We've even owned one or two, but this particular Jeep Comanche tugs at our heart strings in all the right ways. Let's start with the basics: there's a stout 4.0-liter engine underhood hooked to a five-speed manual transmission, and while we wish this truck was four-wheel drive, the two-inch lift and oversize tires should help you overcome obstacles with enough momentum.
Details like handy shovels, Jerry cans and a brush guard inspired by the hardware on a CUCV help lend the truck a no-nonsense appeal, and the functional CB whip antenna means you can ask for backup when the undead hordes come your way. If you like what you see as much as we do, you can head over to eBay Motors to place a bid. The auction has inched up to $4,000 with just two days left on the clock.

AEV Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon

Fri, 28 Feb 2014 11:58:00 EST

After their rented 2007 Hummer H3 failed them during the brutal Rallye Aicha des Gazelles in Morocco, Amy Lerner and her sister Tricia Reina were on a quest to find the most capable production off-roader for their next competition - they chose a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. Their next mission was to find a company with the competence to configure it to win. After poring over Internet forums and perusing countless magazines for an outfitter who could meet their demanding requirements, they sent their bright orange JK ("Crush" is the official color) to American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) for some modifications.
The Michigan-based team at AEV kept the Jeep's 3.6-liter V6 and automatic transmission stock, but replaced the hood with a tall AEV Heat Reduction Hood and added an AEV Snorkel Kit for water crossings (it serves double-duty as its raised height helps to keep the air intake out of the kicked-up dust on the trail). Front and rear off-road bumpers were bolted in place, and AEV skid plates were added to provide additional undercarriage protection. A pair of IPF-900 off-road lights improve visibility, while a 10.2-gallon AEV Fuel Caddy (located behind the exterior spare) added some range. The suspension was upgraded with a 3.5-inch lift kit with Bilstein remote reservoir shocks, and 35-inch Falken Wildpeak A/T tires (LT285/70R17) were mounted at all four corners on AEV's beadlock wheels.

Chrysler investing $20M in Toledo plant to support 9-speed auto production

Sun, 28 Apr 2013 15:05:00 EST

In 2011, Chrysler announced a $72-million investment in its Toledo Machining Plant to modernize production of the eight- and nine-speed torque-converters for automatic transmissions made there. That upgrade work won't be finished until Q3 of this year, but Chrysler has already announced a further $19.6-million investment to increase production capacity for the nine-speeders.
The extra units will be necessary because the nine-speed transmission they'll be mated to is going into three popular models: it will debut on the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, then go into the Chrysler 200 and Dodge Dart. The company predicted that this year alone it would sell 200,000 units equipped with the nine-speed tranny, and it is spending some $374 million in addition to the investment in Toledo to upgrade production capacity for it.
The work attached to this new investment won't begin until Q3 of 2014, and it will be finished by the end of that year. There's a press release below with all the details.
