1996 XJ – The Ninety Six

January 2010, Arches National Park, Utah

I ran into a smoking deal on this fixer upper Jeep, the Jeep was in great shape other than the blown transmission and severe engine problems!  Once I fixed it up though it was great for a family car and light wheeler, it also replaced the Chief in my Jeep lineup.

I got a smoking deal on this non running 1996 Country.  Once I get it running I’ll drive it.

  • 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country, Black
  • Power Drivers Seat, Power Windows, Power Mirrors, Power Locks, Keyless Entry
  • Leather seating surfaces (needs new covers up front though)
  • 30″ BFG All Terrain K/O tires on Jeep Grizzly wheels.
  • Full Mopar skid plate and front tow hook package
  • 2″ Rubicon Express budget boost
  • ABS & NP242 transfer case
  • High pinion Dana 30 and Dana 35, 3.55:1 gearing
  • Cobra 75WXST under drivers’ seat
  • Jeniko laptop mount

My plans for this Jeep are to keep it mostly in the form it is currently in.  I’d like to use it for family camping trips and expedition wheeling.
