Re: jeep cherokee freedom?

It was a dealer installed package when they where trying to clear out the rest of the SE 2001s. There wasn't a very large number of people after stripped out no option cherokees. So the dealer threw on the chrome limited grill, 60th anniversary wheels and a little decal to spice them up.

Re: Jeep Cherokee Freedom?

The freedom and the 60th anniversary were two different packages you could get. But the 00 and 01s even in the freedom and 60th and sport were almost all different in one way or another. Be it trim packages window tint sterio grills rims and tires. When I picked up my 60th anniversary model they had 3 different styles of it at the lot. The one with the tow package and CD player was already sold the other one with the tint and cd upgrade and over head consol was sold so I got the no cd no tint no overhead model no tow package, but it did have the rim and tire package to it.

Jeep really was just slapping what ever they could on these last two models to get them out the door.

Well the 60th was an actual factory trim level. They had WJ, TJ, and XJ 60ths. The Freedom was a dealer created/installed option and only available in '01.

Re: Jeep Cherokee Freedom?

I'mjust saying the 60th anni had different options aswell.

Are you sure about the freedom because I was looking at one in Greeley at the Co's dodge jeep dealer ship and lithia had one aswell.

So they just took a sport and the dealership could order the freedom sticker package from jeep or something? the two I saw were new with under 50 miles on them.

No, they took an SE. Sports have body molding on them. SE/Freedoms do not. Later on they made the Freedom Edition an actual package on the WJ, etc. But in the XJ days it was a ploy by the dealerships to offload the rest of the SE XJs. Thats why there are so few of them.

P.S. The only thing that constituted the 60th package was basically the limited exterior trim level, with a 60th badge, and silvertar wheels. Just with every other trim level, you could pretty much order the interior in any configuration you wanted. But the standard was cloth classic style seats.
