1979 Jeep Cherokee Wide Track Sport Utility 2-door 5.9l on 2040-cars
Seneca, South Carolina, United States
1979 Jeep Cherokee Chief Wide Track 4x4 360 V8 Automatic in excellent condition. This Jeep Runs and drives great, AC is cold, and it's a pleasure to drive. Engine and Trans have both been rebuilt a few years back, front end is tight, brakes are in great condition. No need to have it shipped it's good to drive anywhere.It is original except for a new style ford 2bl carb (better gas millage), a 2" helper spring lift, new 33 12.50 tires, and dual exhaust. With the new style carb and bigger tires to gear it up we average around 15 mpg. I added a CD player in the console but the original am fm CB radio is still in the dash, it works but the speakers are not hooked up to it, I ran them to the CD player. I added a 15 inch electric fan to the engine for extra cooling when running ac in traffic. I have the original paperwork, owners manuals (including the window sticker) from when it was bought new at Hinkles Jeep in Pickens SC. Interior is original (not recovered) and in great shape. Body is in the most excellent rust free condition I've ever seen one of these in. It has been repainted with new decals and it looks great with the exception of a few small chips (see pictures) and some places on the roof at/in front of the luggage rack that have peeled some but easy to fix if so desire but not very noticeable as is. I hate to part with it but I need a truck. I live in Seneca SC and welcome anyone to come drive and check it over all they want before they bid but once sold it is of course as is without a warranty. My cell is 864 723 3723 At work I can't answer the phone so text only and I will call you back or email is good as well. I am a certified mechanic, ran my own shop for over 20 years before I retired from auto repair, this jeep is my personal driver so I have kept it right and ready to drive. It shows well and does draw a lot of attention wherever I go!

The Jeep Cherokee Dakar concept showed off at the 2014 Easter Jeep Safari made a lot of online friends, even the Cherokee naysayers assenting that there's a monster Jeep underneath the Cherokee's skin if you're willing to go in and get it. But after reading Road & Track's write-up of what went into creating the Dakar, particularly its lift, you'll understand why you'll probably never see the components for it in the Jeep Performance Parts catalog.
Tue, 22 Jan 2013 08:46:00 EST
The concept's press release mentions a "prototype Jeep Performance Parts lift kit, and additional suspension modifications." The short-story explanation is that the front struts on the standard Cherokee weren't engineered to accept any amount of lift, so the long story begins with the phrase, "an entirely new suspension." Head over to RT to read the details, and don't be afraid to ogle the Cherokee Dakar gallery and another awesome Jeep fancy that won't likely crawl over the hurdles imposed by production reality.
Striving for improved fuel economy, we already knew that Chrysler will begin using a nine-speed automatic transmission in some of its new products this year, but what we haven't known is that volume at which this gearbox will be used. According to Bloomberg, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has been quoted as saying that the automaker expects to sell close to 200,000 units equipped with this new transmission in 2013. Those gear-rich trannies will be spread out across three models, consisting of the redesigned Chrysler 200, the still-unnamed Jeep Liberty replacement and the Dodge Dart.

This transmission should play a pivotal role in making Chrysler vehicles more competitive in their respective segments. Just for comparison, one of the Dart's key competitors, the Toyota Corolla, still uses a four-speed automatic, and a previous report indicates that the next-generation 200 could get up to 38 miles per gallon on the highway, which is better than most non-hybrid midsize sedans on the market. Marchionne says that the new Jeep model is expected during the second quarter of this year, but there is no word as to when the new 200 or nine-speed Dart will debut, but clearly Dodge would like to have the transmission in its compact yesterday. As for that volume figure, it definitely doesn't seem out of reach since the Dart, Liberty and 200 combined for a total of more than 225,000 units in 2012.
How many more gears can we expect in future cars? Probably not many more, since the CEO of transmission-builder ZF, Stefan Sommer, previously stated that nine speeds was the "natural limit" for transmissions.
Automakers work very, very hard to keep their new vehicles under wraps until they can present them in exactly the way they want it - typically choreographed under the bright lights of an auto show, or perhaps with photos or video in an idyllic location. Spy shooters and leaks, in other words, keep executives and public-relations types up at night.
This is likely to be one of the most polarizing designs to come out in 2014.
Take today, for instance, when the team over at Jalopnik got a big scoop - the first undisguised shots of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, a model whose name wasn't even officially confirmed yet. The clandestine images taken inside of a factory were blurry and didn't exactly show off the crossover's radical new contours in the same sort of flattering light that Jeep probably would've wished for its product reveal. So the Auburn Hills automaker has wisely reacted by spilling at least some of the beans on the new model, giving us these four photos and confirming the Liberty replacement's name, Cherokee.
