    2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport

    The time has come and the XJ must go. Due to the higher cost of finding a motor thanks to "cash for clunkers" I can not find an engine withing my budget and I do not have the time to rebuild my existing engine. I spent some time on KBB.com and came up with a selling price for the Jeep as it is now.

    The Jeep:

    2000 Cherokee Sport, Desert Sand in color

    Tires and rims:

    Tires don't match but are 30in in size
    Rims are 15x8 Canyons off a Wrangler
    full size spare


    Mileage: 233200

    Engine: 4.0L

    Tranny: AW4

    T-case is the NP231

    Axles are LP D30 front and C8.25 rear

    It comes equipped with
    Cobra 29LTD CB radio
    flip up screen CD/DVD/mp3/iPod deck
    OR-FAB front winch bumper with custom welded on stinger in the front
    custom rear bumper with 2.5 inch receiver in the rear
    recovery points on both bumpers
    tail light guards, not the cheesy plastic ones, but the good metal kind.

    I am planning on keeping the winch, recovery equipment and roof rack/basket

    The good:
    just about everything
    solid body
    minimal rust (small spot on tailgate and rear lower quarter panels)
    Carpet removed to prevent rust from water logged carpeting
    runs, moves drives despite the bad (I still DD it for work)
    Inspected as of March 2012 (passed, good till 03/13)

    The Bad:
    Knock in engine (no CEL, no loss of power, just the noise)
    small hole in washer fluid bottle (wont hold fluid, easy fix just have not got to it yet)
    disengaging issue with the t-case, but 4x4 works through all ranges

    The Price:
    $2500 for the Jeep
    If you want the winch and stuff I am planning on keeping, then I am asking Blue Book (fair condition) $3200

    Fix the bad and KBB value jumps to the $4000 range.

    Pics:







    Pics show the old rims, but will have the canyons on when you take it

    yea, I just dont have $1000 in the budget to get an engine with 140K+ miles on it, more for one with less and then I get into reman prices. If its meant to be, one will pop up in budget and this one will last till then

    selling is an option, I would rather fix the issue and keep it, but if left with no other choice, the Beast will have to go. I am sorry too that it is coming to this, I hope and pray that a better option can and will present itself before a transaction. It is not something I want to do, but will do if need be.
