    Jeep Cherokee Question

    Looking at buying a 6cyl 4.0L 2000 Jeep Cherokee for $7500 with 245,000KM clocked on it but the previous owner overhauled the engine 40,000KM ago, i read that Jeep Cherokees are really reliable if maintained well and so on and the current owner claims to be a mechanic and that he has looked after the car very well. He sent me a list of modifications done to the car and engine also pictures of the car as well which is listed below;

    might pay to go to a Jeep forum for answers as they would have a better idea or just buy a Patrol.

    Only thing I know about Jeeps is what I observed in my rear view mirrors IE they get smaller the further behind me they are...

    I believe they came new with a free Pressure Washer so you could wash the oil off your drive each week but not sure

    I would suggest join this Forum for your Jeep Q's Cobber http://www.ausjeepoffroad.com/forum/index.php

    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.
