I managed to talk a buddy of mine whom is selling his 1997 Cherokee four door sport down to 650 bucks. The Jeep has a Power everything, A/C, new set of tires, Alternator, battery, and a complete tune up that was done about a year and a half ago, by me for him. The jeep cranks and runs well but needs cleaning up, a tune up (including changing all fluids due to it sitting for months), and has a little death wobble problem. I had a death wobble problem with my Wrangler but solved that problem with new tires and rims. The 97 Cherokee also has a problem with over heating. I am thinking that It probably needs a new thermostat, water pump and a few other things. Yes I checked the oil for water and it came out very clean, also no oil in the coolant, so it looks like there is no problem with the head gasket. I am going to get it all cleaned up and fixed up, once all of that is done I want to put a mild lift on it with some mild sized tires. I used to have a 87 Cherokee with a 3.5 inch Pro comp with 31's I am thinking of doing the same lift on the 97 but am open to any suggestions that y'all have as well. Ill try to post some pics once I get the jeep home.
