The long running Jeep XJ, known as the Cherokee has been widely lauded for its handsomely rugged good looks and its exceptional offroad capability. It was introduced while the legendary CJ7 was still in production and you can see the Cherokee's influence in the succeeding YJ and TJ Wranglers. It was the first Jeep to be powered by the famously bulletproof 4.0 liter straight six cylinder engine. They produced a good number of these popular vehicles but today the supply of well kept mostly unmodified examples is in short supply.
This 2001 Cherokee Sport 4.0 4x4 is from the final year of production. It is in excellent overall condition and has received consistent and no expense maintenance and upkeep. It is in need of nothing and is good to go.
The truck rolls down the asphalt and dirt as a Jeep should, no surprise considering it has in the last three years and 10k miles benefited from a host of mechanical services and thoughtful upgrades. Front and rear suspension refresh including new leafs, coils and Bilstien shocks. Old Man Emu steering damper and steering bushings, brakes and rotors up front and rear drums and shoes in back. Rebuilt drive shaft and transfer case service. Complete engine reseal, belts, hoses and a new alternator. Full chassis lube and religious fluid exchanges (oil, coolant, transmission, steering, differentials, brakes). BF Goodrich All Terrains and a recent alignment.
As far as modifications this Cherokee has a 2" suspension lift, 1" transfer case drop, aftermarket transfer case and exhaust skid plates, KC driving lights, Curt removable roof rack, a Curt 5000 pound tow hitch out back and a Roadmaster front tow bar kit up front to connect to an RV.
These XJ Cherokees have been coveted by their owners for good reason. Now enthusiasts and collectors are generally taking an acquisitive look at them, competing with the folks who just want to use them for their intended purposes. Buy this Jeep, drive it, take car of it and if and when you decide to sell it you are unlikely to lose money on it.
