Wrangler Blues

Postby dragordie » August 20th, 2007, 6:15 pm

Asking for some help out there. My 87 Wrangler has cost me more money in the last 4 months then my ex wife did the first year. I have an opportunity to swap for a 1993 Cherokee sport 4 inch lift 32-12.50-15 mtzs evan up anybody have any ideas as what to look for (problems) on this Cherokee????? I hate my Wrangler over $3500.00 in it and still dragging the ground :evil:

Boy Bode is quite the salesman I've noticed. Check the floorboards as proashol said. Also check out the underside of all the doors. check each invidual doors power windows,(if applicable) check the drip rails all the way around for bubbles and or rust, check around the steering box bolts...your looking for cracks or if it looks like the steering box has been pulled in towards the motor....walk away very quickly if this is the case. check out the unibody all over for dents, creases, etc. then on that year, look at all the rocker panels in depth, push around, they typically go righ under the rear doors if its a 4 door. that is all i can think of for now.

Ok guys thanks for the info. It does has some cancer problems(rockers on both sides need major renovation. but it is a 2 door and undercarage is in good shape. underside of doors are in good shape. The 4.0 is a new create motor thats been chiped. This thing roastes the 12.50 33 thornburgs right off the wheels. I think I will be saying goodby to the 87 black wrangler. Thanks for all the info :)

I thought this was a family site, I have been hearing that four letter "F" word too many times, and to correct you, it is "Found on the Road DEAD"
