1964 cj5 Tuxedo Park Mark IV. Tuxedo Park is a trim package in the eary 60's which included chrome bumpers, which are almost impossible to find (these have a $2000 re-chrome job), chrome column gear shifter, 60/40 splint front bench seat. Almost every nut bolt and washer has been replaced with either stainless steel or hardened on the whole jeep (motor, transmission, transfer case, chassis, and body) looks really neat. Everything has been rebuilt, replaced, cleaned and painted except the red body paint which has a great patina.  Anybody can put on a shiny new tub but this thing has character. Could have it clear coated but I just keep thick coat of wax applied. Body does have some rust - in front of door openings as seen in pic. Floor pan has some holes - but cleaned and painted, see pic. Looks like someone hit the spare tire carrier and tried to patch, see pic. It took 50 years to get this way - should last a lot longer now that it's all painted.  Very good condition for an original unmolested jeep.  Front fenders have a little denting - rumor has it that it hit a cow. Lived it's life in North Mississippi and Alabama.  Axles, frame, and drive shafts cleaned and painted. Transmission blasted painted and rebuilt. Transfer case blasted and painted and new seals. Motor not rebuilt but runs good except a little exhaust valve leak - no oil leaks, blasted and painted. New water pump, oil lines, alternator, battery. Rebuilt steering box and new tie rod ends.  All new brake system. New exhaust system which is ceramic coated. Tires are not new, ok but some cracking. No parking brake. Finally found a NOS speedometer (after a year of looking) can buy a new version but it doesn't look like the original. Gauges and speedo works (reads a little fast) with new speedo cable. NOS Sparton self canceling turn signal switch. New windshield frame and gasket. All new springs, bushing, and shackles. New upholstery, floor mats, new steering wheel,  horn button, and horn. Stainless rear view mirror and tail lights.   Heater and windshield wipers are not installed - I do have them. No top, or spare tire. Great looking - everyone has to comment on it. Call, text or email with any questions 901 483 3395.  Thanks, Bill. For sale locally, reserve the right to end early. May add more if I thing of anything. Mileage is inaccurate - old speedo was working showing 64k but title listed as mileage unknown.

Some Jeep Cherokees and Chrysler 200s to get standard stop-start in 2015

Wed, 25 Jun 2014

Automakers the world over are striving to find ways to make their models more efficient, and Chrysler has a solution for some versions of the 2015 Chrysler 200 and 2015 Jeep Cherokee (2014 model shown). The Tigershark 2.4-liter four-cylinder in the 200 and the 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 in the Cherokee are getting a slight boost later this year thanks to the addition of Chrysler's Engine Stop-Start system as standard equipment. The company predicts modest gains - a three-percent improvement in fuel economy and a three percent reduction in CO2 emissions with the new tech compared to without it. While it's not much, those who sit in traffic a lot may see a difference.
Chrysler's stop/start system uses a high-speed starter motor to restart the vehicle in a claimed a third of a second. It works by detecting when the vehicle comes to a stop and turning off the engine. A more powerful battery maintains all of the model's accessories while it sits. When the driver lets off the brake, the car starts up again to drive away. There is even a button in the cabin to turn the ESS off, if desired.
The Jeep will be the first to receive ESS in the third quarter of this year to coincide with the start of production of the 2015 model-year version. The 200 will follow in the fourth quarter as a rolling change in production.

NHTSA upgrading Jeep Grand Cherokee, Dodge Durango headliner fire probe

Wed, 15 Jan 2014

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation into headliner fires experienced by a small number of Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango owners has been upgraded to an engineering analysis, the step before the initiation of a recall. In August last year the investigation began with 146,000 Grand Cherokees from 2012 after three complaints were received, but a report on Edmunds says it has been expanded to include 593,299 vehicles covering the 2011-2013 model years for the Jeep and the Dodge Durango, which uses the same headliner assembly, because of possibly 52 incidents of fire.
In some of those incidents drivers have reported a burning odor, smoke or open flames that were contained to the headliner or migrated to another area of the passenger compartment. The culprit has apparently been found: NHTSA blaming an electrical short in the sun visor vanity light wiring, which is routed under the headliner and held in place by three screws. Chrysler began its own probe into the issue when it was first reported and is still looking into the situation while, "fully supporting the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's investigation."

Updated 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee ace same controversial moose test it failed in 2012 [w/video]

Thu, 02 Jan 2014

Some background: one of the more scandalous international incidents of he-said/he-said from 2012 was when Swedish magazine Teknikens Varld put the Jeep Grand Cherokee through its "moose (or elk) test" and reported that the SUV nearly rolled over. That lead to a whole lot of accusations and rebuttals: more than one website and Chrysler's own blog reported that the Jeep was overloaded; Chrysler said Teknikens printed the magazine then let Chrysler respond, Teknikens answered all of the charges in a lengthy post and said Chrysler was given a chance to comment before it went to print; when Chrysler sent investigators to oversee the test and the Jeep didn't go up on two wheels as it did in the first test, furthermore all four wheels stayed on the ground when Auto Motor und Sport tested a Grand Cherokee in the same way.
Teknikens then re-ran the test with a new vehicle and said it's been doing this test since the 1970s, uses the loading information that Chrysler provides to the Swedish motor authority and the previous Grand Cherokee passed with no problem. In the second test, the Jeep failed again, then it gave Chrysler engineers access to the car's electronics and ran the test again. In that second round the Grand Cherokee didn't repeat the lurid two-wheel action, but in eleven runs it blew out front left tire seven times. Chrysler still objects to the results of all of those tests and maintains that vehicle was safe.
The 2014 Grand Cherokee was given its shot at the gauntlet in the latest round of moose tests, and Teknikens Varld reports that it passed without any problem at all, its stability control working perfectly, controlling motion at low speeds and all the way up to 44.1 miles per hour. You can watch the video of the new test and read the press release from the magazine on the updated Grand Cherokee below.
