My new project

89 limited, 4.0, auto. 227k (bad part)

needs new radiator, possibly trans cooler, and ac converted to 134.

Steering wheel removed to take out the ignition. PO lollygagged and i wanted it moved, so took out to get the steering to turn. Going to replaced that lock anyway, dont like people knowing where a vehicle is that still may have a key to it.

Re: My new project

Ahhh, the good ole Grey Limited interiors. Takes me back, my first Cherokee was an 88 limited, and it looked exactly like that on the inside. I think mine had 295,000 +/- on it when it stopped running (electrical issue) and I gave up on it. Should be a fun little project for you. Keep us updated.

There's only a VERY SMALL group of folks that will remember that rig........ What is that? Circa 2003-ish?

Re: My new project

There it is. Wish I had some pics of the spots-n-stripes that it got in Moab. Guess it was about 03-04. It had a front header panel until about 5 minutes before that picture was taken. That was the Kremmling Crawl. Next rig through that sidehill took a bad roll and really rung the guy's bell.
