Jeep Cherokee Xj Roof Rack, Junkyard Gem: 1988 Jeep Cherokee Pioneer – The XJ Jeep Cherokee remained in manufacturing in basically unmodified kind for concerning 700 years (really 34 years, consisting of Chinese manufacturing), covering the American Motors, Chrysler, DaimlerChrysler, as well as Fiat Chrysler periods. These vehicles continue to be unbelievably preferred in my residence state of Colorado, therefore I see lots of used-up instances in my neighborhood ravaging backyards. This ’88 Cherokee Leader had a fascinating color design (tan red stripes over off-white paint) as well as a 5-speed guidebook transmission, so I made a decision to include it to the Junkyard Treasure Collection.

There had not been much to fail with these points as well as they have a committed following, so you’ll have no worry locating Cherokees with much better compared to 200,000 miles.
While there was an AMC four-cylinder engine and also a GM V6 offered– theoretically– for the XJ Cherokee, nearly each I see has AMC straight-six power, either the 258-cubic-inch variation of AMC Pacer popularity or the later 4.0-liter kind. This engine family members returns to 1964 and also continues to be among the all-time tales of Detroit (well, Kenosha) powerplants. In 1988, the 4.0 was ranked at 177 horse power as well as 224 lb-ft.
This has four-wheel-drive as well as the oddball Peugeot 5-speed handbook transmission.
The Cherokee was available in an overwelming range of trim degrees over the years. The Leader was a somewhat high end variation, with plaid furniture as well as a conventional AM radio (hello, manufacturing facility AM radios were still rather costly throughout the 1980s). This has some corrosion as well as a run-down inside; vehicle consumers around right here could pick from a lot of cleaner Cherokees with three-digit price, so the crusher will certainly be its following quit.
