1983 Jeep Cherokee Chief Sport on 2040-cars
Long Beach, New York, United States
Up for sale is a 1983 Jeep Cherokee Chief 2 door in very good shape for a 30+ year old vehicle. The jeep is in great running condition with several aftermarket parts including: Edelbrock 650cfm carburetor and aluminum performer intake manifold, Mallory HEI distributor, Edelbrock aluminum water pump and BJ's offroad aluminum radiator. It runs at 190-200 deg all day in the middle of the summer heat with that aftermarket water pump and radiator setup. One note: the Jeep does have an AMC 401ci. motor not the 360ci motor as listed above( eBay does not have that motor listed for this model year.) Other parts include an aftermarket polyethylene gas tank and Flowmaster 40 muffler with new tailpipe and exhaust tip. The timing and idle is set perfectly with the top end motor setup and it sounds even better with the exhaust. Both drive line U-joints have been changed as well as brakes at the four corners and the front wheel bearings have been repacked and greased. The body is in great shape for a jeep of this year and as the photos will show, the only rough spot on the entire truck is the lower rocker panel on the passenger side. All the fender flares have no rust or rot which is typical of this particular jeep. The chrome is showing signs of pitting with age and could use some re-chroming. The interior is in great shape with the dash board all in tact but, as usual with these jeeps, the only issue is cracking of the dash speaker due to sun wear. The headliner is an earlier hard piece not the later model fabric ones which tend to sag over time. It does have 35x12.50 tires and a lift kit to fit the tires perfectly and at this point I would probably recommend a new set of shocks.
I am not the original owner but I have kept all receipts of the work I have had done and I do have a clean title for the truck as well. The jeep is by no means perfect and I don't claim to it being a show truck but it runs incredibly well and shows great for a real jeep of its year. I would like to see it go to a new owner who will enjoy it and keep it as well as I have tried through the years, so please only serious bidders.

As we mentioned, Jeep is bringing a quartet of concepts to the Beijing Motor Show this year. Its largest model, the Grand Cherokee, is nowhere to be found, but its smallest is. That, of course, would be the new Renegade, which has been done up as the Zi You Xia design concept.

Taking its name from the Mandarin word (or words) for "rebel," the Zi You Xia takes its inspiration from the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing, with a Warm Chocolate Gray paintjob with contrasting dark bronze trim. The roof, grille and mirror caps are color-keyed to match the rest of the exterior, riding on 20-inch alloys in the same dark bronze finish.
Inside it's all Piano Black, Anodized Copper and brown leather with plaid fabric inserts. Scope it out in the high-res image gallery above and the press release below.
Ice skates are spectacular on frozen water, yet they are dreadful everyday footwear. I consider the Jeep Wrangler equally as specialized.

I recently spent a week with a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4X4. Introduced for the 2007 model year, the Wrangler Unlimited is a standard JK two-door with 20.6 inches added to its wheelbase and two additional doors bolted to its passenger compartment. While Jeep offers the Unlimited in seven different trim levels, the desirable Rubicon is the most capable when the pavement ends, as it boasts a slew of hardcore off-road tools including front and rear electronic locking differentials and a front sway bar that can be disengaged at the touch of a button for improved articulation. My I-Look-Like-A-Traffic-Cone test model started with a base price of $34,095 (plus $995 destination). Options including a five-speed automatic transmission, Uconnect, tow package and a premium soft top, drove the bottom line up to $38,630.
You may remember that Jeep's unusual fix for this recall involves fitting a trailer hitch.
The recall of about 1.5 million models of the 2002-2007 Jeep Liberty and 1993-1998 Grand Cherokee over fuel tanks may finish far sooner than originally estimated. In a new filing from Jeep's parent, Chrysler Group, with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the company says that it can complete the repairs for the affected vehicles by March 2015, much sooner than the previous estimate of sometime in 2018. Jeep predicts the total cost of the campaign will be around $151 million.
