The tires will rub and the short arm lift will ride rough. You could go with smaller tires? Does it have a SYE on the t-case? Any vibs at high speed? George:cool:

Can't check it out until next weekend. Also not sure why they say axles replaced. Have to do more investigation. Price seems high though.

IMHO

 

I used to by vehicles already done up and two things with that. one they may not be exactly what you want and the other You will gain all their headaches. Its my belief to try and buy a stock vehicle and build it up yourself. That way you know the ins and outs and what quirks are where and you know exactly whats in it.

 

my 2 cents

 

PS I personally would not pay that much, but that's me.

If you are thinking of spending that much I would seriously talk to Bill- AZLugz first, his rig has the bigger V8 and more features and was built custom locally by Doc the owner of Stone Soup Metal (fellow wheeler).

krusher, didn't stone soup also do the cage on your/dennis' lj?

 

this cherokee is an "amazing off road toy" http://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/cto/2571630062.html

 

I may seriously make an offer on this thing, I bet $1000 cash would get it. I always have thought a stripped Cherokee would make a great hunting rig.

Yep, Stone Soup did the cage addon.

 

I put an offer of 6500 on the one at Luke. They would not go lower than 7999. Now they have it listed for 9900. Someone will pay that.

 

I actually picked up a 4runner. Figured I would give G some non jeep business. Still keeping my eye out for a turn-key rig, but in no hurry.
