Up for sale is my 1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport. I picked it up about one year ago, and I am the second owner. Before I
bought the vehicle there was hardly any work done on it, other than a motor swap. From what I was told by the last
owner there was a knock in the motor at about 138k miles; and it needed to be replaced, so a motor out of a Jeep
Cherokee with 78k miles on it was installed in this vehicle. I picked up this vehicle because of the interior
condition. Out of all the other Jeeps I had viewed, this one was by far the best one. I have maintained it in its
condition since I picked it up.
My original intention was to make this a rock crawler and to eventually do a motor swap to either a stroked 4.6l I6
or an LS1 conversion. My reason for selling it is that I have run out of time (never patience) on the car and I
don’t drive it as much as I would like to. I would like to see it go into someone’s hands that appreciates the
off-road or to a Jeep enthusiast.
I had a trusted shop in town do all of the major work on it, but for the little things I decided to tackle the
project myself. All of the parts on the vehicle are less than a year old, and installed about 7k miles ago. I hate
to say it, but this vehicle hasn't seen as much the off-road as I would have liked.
Full Disclosure:
· Interior is in good shape 9/10
· Exterior is in okay shape 7/10
· Tire tread is at 70%, spare has not been used.
· Exterior does have some hail damage from before I bought it, nothing major.
· Exterior has paint blemish on front fender near hood. (can provide picture)
· Exterior has scratch on rear by the tailgate that is exposed down to the metal.
· Exhaust is starting to rust, which is why I will be providing a new Flowmaster Exhaust kit. (can provide
· Paint started to peel just below the driver’s door, on the rocker panel.
· I recently was chasing an ignition issue, which was from the fuel pump giving out. (everything was addressed at
the local Chrysler dealership)
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me.

Chrysler to accelerate production of 2013 Ram and V6 engines

Fri, 16 Nov 2012 18:44:00 EST

Chrysler is adding a third shift at its Warren Truck plant to meet demand for the new 2013 Ram pickup. And with tight supplies of its Pentastar V6, the company is also boosting output at its Mack Engine plant.
The expansions will add 1,250 jobs and are part of a $238 million investment by Chrysler in the Detroit area. Warren's third shift will begin work sometime in the spring, a Chrysler rep told Automotive News. Mack's increased Pentastar production a could include both 3.6 and 3.2-liter engines.
The company says it also plans to invest $40 million in its Trenton Engine plant to allow for production of a 3.2-liter V6 as well as the Tigershark inline-four for the upcoming Jeep Liberty replacement.

Jeep does Renegade Chinese-style with Zi You Xia design concept

Sat, 19 Apr 2014 21:01:00 EST

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.

Jeep gunning to build 250,000 Cherokees a year

Thu, 21 Mar 2013 11:28:00 EST

Contrary to what a certain politician may have said last year about Jeep moving to China, the automaker is in fact doing the opposite, with plans to greatly increase the production capacity at its Toledo North Assembly plant in Ohio. The Detroit Free Press is reporting that there are big plans for the 2014 Jeep Cherokee and Toledo North, as a local union president has informed the newspaper that Chrysler is planning to produce around 250,000 examples of the new midsize utility per year.
To put this number into context, 250,000 units is more than what Jeep Liberty sales totaled here over the last three years combined. Even taking into consideration that the 250,000 units will be distributed beyond US borders, that's an ambitious volume figure full-stop - and that's without taking into consideration the new Cherokee's love/hate design. In its favor, though, Jeep is making remarkable inroads globally as of late, and the Cherokee's size could work well in emerging markets. To get that kind of output from Toledo's Cherokee assembly line, Chrysler will reportedly hire 1,105 new workers - that's in addition to the 200 workers already being hired to build the popular Jeep Wrangler, which is itself expected to top 220,000 units this year.
