Now it has a Chevy 327 originally in a Berkel Camaro with a Super Warner Borg T-10 oven speed. And yes the 327 was rebuilt and all the usual performance Goodies equiped.

Riddle me this … Batman. – Your flag is backwards smart guy.

Jake sweeney – I have a 97 country one I recited the brain box all is well I put on a hundred thousand it wheels on the weekends and back to work

Austin radtke – Another benefit of the newer Cherokees (98-01 I believe?) Is the stronger 29 spline 8.25 rear axle over the 27 spline or achieved Dana 35. And I believe it’s the 99’s that had the bad heads on them. My father has had Cherokee For years and is now 2000 on 35s. They’re great, cheap trucks

Antigen4 – You’re confusing renix (using a carburetor) with odb1 ?

Antigen4 – Renix until 1989 i thought?

Micah turner – Umm, you check the codes on the previous obd2 cherokees by cycling the ignition 3 times and counting the check engine light blinks and then looking up the codes

The garage lot – I 1999 runs like a field. It must have been made in the middle of the week when everyone was in sync in toledo, because it is solid, just had to overcome the usual 4.0L coolant probs. I just absolutely loved it. Agree the 1998 and 1999 seem like late model years for the XJ. More from what I’ve seen, High Pinion D30 was removed in the 2000 and 2001 years.

Orregonnich – Flag’s backwards

Gary grinkevich – Got a black 90 Limited, it had abs brakes and I did the conversion when the pump finally gave the ghost.

Matt out – Just got a 1991 xj 2 door all original 99% rust free and interiors almost perfect
Overall condition 99 out of 100

Kyle gorowski – @cherokeeronnie what fluid transmission do you recommend for a 94 XJ. 4.0 because

Captain howdy – The paint molding is very clean in the sports, never loved limited

Captain howdy – I have a 2006 rubicon wrangler 65k miles at 2000xd 88k miles and 92 emerald green mustang lx 5.0. Their all my baby’s. Cherokee but the new Lexus rx350, but the Cherokee is a classic design that looks bad

Mythic armory – To sum up:
84-86 = Bad (6 cylinder)

98-99 = Best years of the newer styles
00-01 = Head cracks

14tboy – I love my 2000 as an everyday driver the coil on plug gives you a better throttle response and slight better fire efficiency. My 1988 is a tank though. 8.5 inch lift with 36 inch tires. I beat that thing trying to kill the Dana 35 rear So I’ll have an excuse to upgrade but I can not kill it!

Trent egan – Need a green front driver fender for a 2000 other so that it has 220,000 and its still running great

The game station – They are trying to make you feel like you’re in love with the old renix. Look up the renix.

The game station – My honest opinion is the best of the best I have a 98 and 90.

Jake l – I’m not sure if it’s because of the camera’s perspective, but the American flag is improperly displayed. The union is supposed to be on the left side, not the right when hung vertically. Not a big deal out of it or anything but thought You should know! 🙂

Ippathvvv – I have a 99 XJ in black in excellent shape! Love the 99’s

Dillonmitchum124 – I’ve had a 89 96 and 2 95 my best one was the 95s both country

Michael gonzalez – I found this video because I bought a jeep Cherokee classic with 124k miles at a dealer that seems to be in pretty good shape. they want 4.5k. the reason I looked into jeeps is because I can not do it. would you recommend I look For a 99? that same dealer has 99 goals it’s at 201k miles already

Hunttomuch wolfe – I have a 95 country with a little rust I just picked up some high miles but its still in good shape 1000 bucks goal I could not go it up my next project

Cody vaughn – What do you think about the 01’s?

Kirsten johnson – Thanks!

Random thoughts – Xi. Great truck with a bulletproof engine.

Gary button – Good info! However, I did hear that the front end on the 97-01’s slightly different fenders with even less space under the fender well. Which, for off-road use, requires trimming the fender opening for anything larger then has 9.5 x 30 Sweaters (235/75 r16). Obviously, sway-bar disconnects will aggravate this problem with larger tires: 245/75 r16 and up.

Rugged209 – I’ve had 98 classic with leather heated seats power seats overhead woodgrain console just beautiful I’m sorry getting rid of it 00/01 inside but I’d never buy it 00/01 there horrible no matter what usay
