March 15th I was given a Jeep. They probably donated it to me because they felt bad I was driving a 45 year old vehicle


It is a 1994 Cherokee Sport. 4.0, 5 speed manual and 4x4 one owner Jeep.   I know some are thinking how rare it is to have a manual in a 4 door Cherokee, it is not. At least to me. This is my third XJ and all three were manuals. ( one AX-5 and two ax-15's)   ( The guy that bought my CJ7 years ago had two of them, have a friend with a 2x4 and I know of two or more in town with manuals, not rare in my world.)


It does have 275,xxx miles on it and almost all original. ( Told the clutch is original )


So far I removed all the interior to clean it out. Lots of coffee was spilt and a dog with white fur was a frequent passenger. I also "rebuilt" the drivers door handle. Spring was broken making it difficult to unlatch.
Also had to grease all door latches. I took the drivers side out and cleaned it of grime, The other three will be removed soon and cleaned as well.



So far I know it needs: ( not in order of importance)
Clutch
Drivers door window regulator
Speakers
Trans or engine mounts
Tires
Shocks
Told a seal in the transfer case is leaking


I will be degreasing in and checking brakes and suspension.


I'm happy I will be getting close to 20 mpg

I'd have taken it too.  Good deal. 

A year ago I saw an ad in Craigslist for a Cherokee with a 5-speed.  Guy only wanted $2K but I couldn't justify it.  I shoulda tried harder to convince myself.
There's a reason it's called Ol' Unreliable

Thanks guys! I like that it is not red. Original owner told me they know of only one other blue one in the area.

Changed the oil last night. The place the previous owner had it changed before I got it put the oil filter on way to tight, had to put a pry bar through the filter. Even then it was difficult to remove.

Sadly ( or happily) it was the place I used to work at. ( One of the reasons I no longer work there)

Ordered a bunch of parts for it that needed help. Clutch, trans. and engine mounts, wiper linkage bushings, stabilizer links and an all important cupholder .

Also a valve cover gasket and breather tubes. It leaks oil in the air filter box and being a known problem I found the "factory" way to stop it from happening.

Hopefully it will stop raining when I get these parts because this week has been rainy.

Sounds like you got your work cut out for you Dennis. I hear ya on the rain I got 3-1/2 " in 2-1/2 days and all the lakes around here are at full capacity and they have the spill gates open. Our creek is higher then I have ever seen it.

Oh it does not. Just this morning from 8:00 to 8:15 it didn’t rain at all. Things were starting to get a little dusty. But then the drought was relieved.

Excited to get back to work, as I had a bunch of parts waiting for me!  Would have started replacing items but it was raining when I got home LOLCry  Now hopefully everything I ordered is correct replacement for the Jeep. Sucks when you order a part and then you find out the factory changed the design mid year.
