****1996 JEEP CHEROKEE XJ****
*********4 WHEEL DRIVE********
**ONLY 7800 MILES PER YEAR**
****4.0 L "HIGH OUTPUT"****
Up for bid is a 1996 4 wheel drive Jeep Cherokee with a 4.0 L High Output inline 6 cylinder and Automatic transmission
1996 MOST DESIRABLE YEAR FOR THE XJ
This is a very clean California car that has average just 7800 miles per year with just 142880 miles. The Jeep is a basic model with all of the good stuff. It has air condition that blows ice cold, the heater also works great. It has crank windows which work great, a lot of these Jeeps that have power windows are not working when they get to this age.
The interior is cloth and is in decent shape how ever is a little dirty in spots, the rear seat has a small tear on the drivers side but is in good shape for 18 years old. It will fold out like a bed if needed. The head liner is original and has some imperfections but all in all intact.
This Jeep was originally built as a black vehicle. This Jeep was owned by a San Francisco Executive in Orinda, California, and has never been abused and that was used by each of his 3 daughters who were 3 years apart each. This Jeep was in the high school parking lot for over 9 years. When it came time for the third daughter to get a new vehicle she was told she was getting a new car and all she had to do was pick a color. She picked White. Dad paid to have this black Cherokee color changed to white. It is a high quality base coat clear coat that looks very clean with no damage or or evidence of damage repair. The car is very clean however the door jambs and under the hood are still original black .
the interior is in decent shape for the age of the vehicle, it does have some stains and a small tear on the left side of the rear bench, the headliner is torn in a few spots , the dash is super clean as are the door panels, the Jeep has the optional deep tented glass.
This Jeep runs great, the 4.0 "HIGH OUTPUT” fires right up and has surprising low end power. IT pulls strong in every gear, the transfer case works like new and has seen hardly any use. It has been tested and shifts like new. It has always been overly serviced by Orinda motors and mechanically in great shape.
LET'S SEE HOW SHE RUNS
SOLID CALIFORNIA CAR
The Jeep Cherokee (XJ) is a unibody (monocoque) compact SUV that was developed and produced by the Jeep division of American Motors, and continued to be built and marketed by Chrysler after 1987. It shared the name of the original full-size SJ model, but without a body-on-frame chassis, and set the stage for the modern sport utility vehicle (SUV). The XJ's innovative appearance and sales popularity spawned important imitators as other automakers began to notice that this model began replacing regular cars. It was built in Toledo, Ohio
Due to its toughness and reliability, the XJ was also selected in 2011 as one of "10 cars that refuse to die"
In 1991, a Chrysler fuel injection system replaced the RENIX system, and the intake ports were raised approximately .125 in (3.2 mm) for a better entry radius. Chrysler also enlarged the throttle body and redesigned the intake and exhaust manifolds for more efficiency, and the fuel injectors were replaced with higher flow units. Camshaft timing was also changed. The net result was an engine that made 190 hp (142 kW; 193 PS) and 225 lb·ft (305 N·m). Badging on most Jeeps equipped with this engine read "4.0 Litre HIGH OUTPUT." The new cam profile combined with altered computer programming eliminated the need for an EGR valve and knock sensor .
1996, the engine block was redesigned for greater strength. The new block had more webbing and a stud girdle for added rigidity of the crankshaft main bearings.
For 1996, partially to comply with new U.S. OBD-II exhaust and evaporative emissions regulations, the engine management system was upgraded to Chrysler's then-new "JTEC" PCM. This added the side benefits of improving reliability and easing diagnostics.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to have a solid original California Jeep with a powerful 4.0 High Output that has never been abused
This car is a rare find that cannot be duplicated. She runs and drives great
