Well I am thinking it may be time to get a 4 door. I really do not want to get rid of this jeep but a 4 door would be a lot easier with the family. It is a 2008 rubicon there is a lot of work that has been done on this rig. It has a fresh paint job. The color is orange crush and looks great. The rear was stretched 8" using the Rock Krawler long arm stretch kit. The front is sitting on Rock Krawlers RRD 2-5/8 coilovers. The front grill was cut to clear the 40's at full steer. The interior was bed lined for easier clean up. The jeep has right around 65000 miles on it and will change since i drive it everyday. It will run 75 down the highway no problem. I wouldn't hesitate to drive it across country. It comes with 4 tires and wheels the fifth that is in the tire carrier is a 37 and I will be keeping that one. If you are interested in getting a fifth then I can get a discount on it. After every wheeling trip I always got under the jeep and touched up any scratches to keep it looking clean and keep the rust away. It is very clean underneath. I just got done sand blasting the rear axle and repainted it. All the arms got sanded down and repainted also. The jeep will fit in a standard 7' garage door. The only reason I am wanting to get rid of it is because we have a 1 year old and we take the jeep out a lot so a 4 door will be much easier. I am looking to get 30,500.00

Jeep Cherokee won't get diesel until sales of oil-burning Grand Cherokee improve

Tue, 01 Jul 2014 17:30:00 EST

Okay Jeep fans, you want more diesel options? Time to step up and prove it. The only way Jeep will offer a diesel powerplant in the Cherokee, according to brand head Mike Manley, is if sales of the Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel nearly double.
Currently, about eight percent of the Grand Cherokees sold feature the 3.0-liter, EcoDiesel V6. That's simply not enough to warrant the bringing an oil-burning Cherokee to the US market, despite the vehicle's presence in Europe, where it's sold with a 2.8-liter diesel V6.
"Cherokee is slightly different because of its weight and size. When I think about bringing Cherokee diesel here, I would like to see Grand Cherokee diesel get much higher than eight percent," Manley told Automotive News. "It would have to be in mid-double digits."

What's really going on with the 2014 Jeep Cherokee's transmission issues?

Fri, 27 Sep 2013 15:28:00 EST

On September 23, Automotive News reported that Chrysler had idled the second shift workers it hired just five weeks prior at its Toledo Assembly Complex to build the 2014 Jeep Cherokee. At the time, Chrysler said it had "built the critical number of vehicles we need to stock dealerships once containment is released" and did not want "to put additional strain on our logistics partners ... upon release." That reasoning was not only unusual, it didn't seem to make sense.
It appears the center of the nine-speed issue is software, not hardware.
That same day, the Detroit News ran a piece claiming workers at the Toledo factory said the halt was due to issues with the Cherokee's transmission. It put the number of already-built Cherokees needing fixes at 1,000 and said that some of the workers not laid off had been instructed "to take the Jeep on long test-drives." That made more sense. Three days later, on September 26, Automotive News reported that the 500 workers laid off had been reinstated, with engineers "speeding repairs on the SUV's powertrain software." The AN piece didn't put a number on how many units are being fixed, but it did say that 12,000 have been built and are awaiting delivery to dealers. The best it could say about when dealers will get them, however, is that "progress on a fix is being made. It's unclear when shipments to dealers will start."

NHTSA closes book on Jeep 'trailer hitch' recall after all

Mon, 20 Jan 2014 15:59:00 EST

After much debating and hand-wringing, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration now says it has "no reservations" with Chrysler's plan to recall certain Jeep Liberty and Grand Cherokee models over concerns that their fuel tanks, which are located behind the rear axle, could rupture or leak in the event of a rear impact. The longstanding argument between the two entities saw Chrysler openly defy the Feds after a request to recall 2.7 million units back in June.
Chrysler's "voluntary campaign" will instead see it recall 1.56-million 1993-2004 model year Grand Cherokee SUVs, along with 2002-2007 Liberty models. Affected vehicles will get a trailer hitch installed free of charge, which Chrysler says will provide an additional degree of protection for the fuel tanks in the event of a crash. Jeeps with Mopar-branded hitches or hitches that were installed at the factory aren't affected by this recall.
Chrysler's argument throughout this battle has been that the Jeeps in question are no more susceptible to fires than comparable vehicles from the same time period, a position that NHTSA has seemingly arrived at as well. "Those vehicles performed at a rate similar to their peers. That is the keystone analysis as to whether something poses an unreasonable risk to safety," said outgoing NHTSA boss David Strickland during an interview with the The Associated Press.
