Re: 88 Cherokee. 4,493 original miles. Really?

i still saw rust on the anti-sway bar end links... just cause it was out of the uv elements, doesnt mean it wasnt kept away from moisture, it could still have rusty bolts underneath it lol. it will be a shame to see it sell for a trail vehicle and run to hell and back, but it is a very nice jeep indeed, maybe someone will use it as a parts vehicle =D

I'm more amazed at the current price and that the reserve isnt met, but to each his own.

Re: 88 Cherokee. 4,493 original miles. Really?

i think i would rather buy a jeep with 150k miles for 5 grand, then that.....

I can just imagine the problems that thing will have if you started daily driving it..

Re: 88 Cherokee. 4,493 original miles. Really?

If it truely has been maintained in the fashion that the ad says, I dont think it would have many/any problems at all. Those sort of issues come up with vehicles that just plain sit. No starting, no fluid changes, no driving what so ever. The ad claims it was fairly regularily started and maintained...so I dont think it would give you too much trouble mechanically. Ide venture to say there are people on this board that dont regularily lube chassis parts on their dd jeeps. Again, that all depends on the validity of the description.

The one thing I think would go downhill fast is paint. Unless you garage kept it of course. But leaving it out in the sun, after being garage kept all its life, would wreak havoc on the finish.

I recently experienced this with a 86 Trans AM. 30k miles garage kept. Perfect all over...until I had to park it outside every day. Then the paint went bye byes haha. And that was bc/cc paint.

If this was a two door Ide be all over this...

Really? Mine has them, well had them. Ended up pulling them off (I think all of them) after I did box tube rockers years ago.

huh. I didn't have door sweeps on my 90 laredo. I don't have them on my 01 classic. My buddy doesn't have them on his 00 limited either. I wonder how common those things were?

Not sure, cause now that you mention it I've seen a lot of rigs without them. My 95 had them, but when I had to get a door from a JY rig I'm pretty sure it didn't. My friends 96 I'm pretty sure does have them.
