1999 Jeep Cherokee Classic Limited 4x4.

Runs and drives and has been used as a daily driver for errands and short distances since September—current valid inspection. Four-wheel drive works and was used sparingly this past winter on 1-2 snowy days to drive kids to school.

I got a new muffler in October. There is a new battery in October. 6 New injectors and spark plugs. I replaced the PCM computer, which was faulty(common in jeeps) and had been creating a misfire on cylinder one. I also replaced a broken shackle in the rear suspension. I added 1.75” spaces on the front and a leaf in the rear, which could accommodate +1 tire size, but I would replace these tires right away since there is good tread. The tires are Firestone a/t. Replace the fog lights with factory replacements. I have replaced the gas-assist rear liftgate so that it works. I replaced the driver-side door check strap. Seat covers were added on the factory tan seats because the driver's side was worn. Heated seats work! Oil change and filter.

There is an ABS speed sensor fault, so the ABS light is on(early ABS, which was an option back then). I’ve read online it isn’t worth trying to chase this down. The brakes work well; they probably need pads soon, depending on driving distances—the e brake works.

The engine light is on due to an EVAP system fault. This relatively low-cost fix could be addressed directly or by a shop. I will include the shop manual for this model.

There is some undercarriage rust- not too bad for these, but one spot under the driver's side could use some attention. By 1999, they were including undercoating that helped these newer models not turn to rust.

I salvaged a front track bar, which was missing on this when I bought it. An area of the front passenger side frame must be addressed before using this track bar, but I would include it with the sale.

The headliner could use some work as it is sagging. I repaired it with some headliner spray and staples, but the correct fix would be to remove the backer and reupholster it.

There is some rust on the passenger rocker, which should be covered with a rocker cover panel. I recommend this pair, and they are black: https://www.rustysoffroad.com/products/rustys-rocker-sliders-xj-cherokee?variant=32892090286176&currency=USD&utm_medium=product_sync&utm_source=google&utm_content=sag_organic&utm_campaign=sag_organic&gad_source=1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI5qHWrfWZhgMVBET_AR1DEQQKEAQYAiABEgKd5fD_BwE

A few shorts in the door wiring affect the passenger window from the driver-side control and front speakers. This car came equipped with an infinity sound system at the time. I haven’t dug into this, but I read that the wires become brittle from all the doors opening and closing and need to be checked.

All in all, it is a good car. I would probably do the front bushings and shocks, and it would feel like a new car handling-wise. Perhaps some plus-one tires or 30x9.5. I wouldn’t call these rare, as they made about 3 million, which means there are many parts to keep this one going if you take care of it.

This car/truck can keep up with any other off-road vehicle, which is mainly why they are collectible. Renault designed them so the body style has stood the test of time, and now you see new cars with the same look.

I hope all this helps. Shoot me a message if you have specific questions or want to look. Do a little desktop research to understand the value and if you are the type of person or know someone who can tackle some of this maintenance and fixes. This car is one of the last few cars you can work on without all the crazy electronics. The engine is bulletproof, and tranny is also good.

Thanks for looking.
