    Question Should I Trade for 2000 Jeep Cherokee????

    Hey guys,

    I have a possible trade being considered for a 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4x4 with automatic and 4.0L. I was wondering when I go look at the Jeep if there was anything I should consider looking at?

    Thanks for your input.

    if your talking about trading the Rubi in your sig, don't do it, if something else, check all the typical jeep stuff.
    Has it been wheeled? How Hard?
    Will it be wheeled? Again How Hard?
    any after market mods?
    check hoses, belts, UJOINTS, fluids

    Oh no way, Keeping the Rubi, this is for my daily driver stuff. It will be just daily driver operations, support vehicle. Has no mods done to it from what the guy said so far. I don't plan on doing much besides upgrades for light wheeling and stuff like hauling supplies to the site where ever that may be.

    2000 XJ should have either a Dana 44 or a Chrysler 8.25" rear end, if for some reason it has a Dana 35 stay awayfrom it. Another thing to look for is the high pinion Dana 30 up front. Check for even tire wear, that will tell you that there is a ball joint, or other issues, like it was not maintained and he never rotated the tires, so did he change the oil, etc....Cherokee's are great vehicles, but I would not trade a Rubicon for it either.

    In 2000, they went to the 'coil on plug' ignition system, instead of having the dizzy. Far as I know, there's no problem with these.

    If it has the D35, you'll be fine if you're going to use it as stated, and only do light wheeling with 31" tires.

    But like SGM O said, it should have the Chryco 8.25 in it w/29 spline axles, great rear end.

    Make sure you test drive it, and check the 4WD. Run it at different speeds, and feel for vibes, etc. Even death wobble. Mostly easy fixes, but they may get you a better deal If it;s got something really wrong, you'll know not to touch it.

    Overall, the XJ is a great rig, especially for a DD workhorse.

    I got a 2000 Cherokee sport w/4.o 6 banger---I would say run it and check your oil pressure at a red light with it under load and at operating temperature....if you have 20lbs or better,you have a pretty good rig on your hands....if not,then think about it needing main bearings soon.....

    The 4.0 is notorious for bad oil pressure readings

    Only way to get a 'true' reading, is to install a mechanical guage.

    I had to swap the ECU in my '99, when I did, the oil pressure dropped by 10 lbs, giving me a reading of 0-10 at idle. Put the original ECU back in, and it went back to 10-20 at idle.

    Actual reading with a mech guage? 25 lbs

    If the oil has been changed regularly, and it was driven within reason, the 4.0 main bearings will go 200K miles easy.

    2000 XJs should have the LPD30 and a Chrys 8.25 rear. The heads are notorious for cracking as well.
