4Jeepn XJ's are nice. Stay away from the GM v6 and get either version of the 4.0L. I hope to be getting another XJ at some point.

Rainycity I own a 89 cherokee limited with 4.0 H.O. and a 93 wrangler with a 4.0 H.O. and they both seem to start a little hard. But hey, they start,,and they go,, heh-heh

KicknJeep If you happen to find another XJ in that year range the two main problems I had with my 89 was the renix set up, As far as the cooling ststem is a closed system and was bad about leaking and running hot. But the NAXJA site the turd mentioned has several fixes for that. Another thing was the throttle position sensor was very sensitive to moisture and will play out easily if even remotely wet. other than that I miss that 'ol XJ. If going over seas then we wish him Good Luck and be safe.

Joe Dirt The guy sold it

He's hoping to buy a fixer-upper. He's in the Army Reserve and will be deploying soon. I'm planning on fixing it up while he's gone.

Cherokee problems to look for?

My son is looking at buying an 87 Cherokee. I'm a Wranagler guy and could use some advice on a Cherokee. It has a 4.0L, Dana 44 rear, AMX 15 transmission. It seems to start a little hard, but it's only $1000. Are there any issues with this year or anything I should beware of?
