Hey folks. Growing up, my mom drove a 85 Jeep XJ. Navy blue with the fake woody sides. So I’ve always kind of kept an eye out for a nice unmodified one. Well, yesterday I found one and today it’s in my driveway.
Picked up this 1985 2 door Cherokee Chief. It’s the AMC/Renault collaboration before Chrysler got involved. Has the carbureted GM V6 with 181k km. One owner! Old guy bought it new in 85 and only drove it in the snow.
Needs a bit of love, like new rubber. But he kept it serviced and running all these years.
I won’t be doing any hard wheelin’ in it because I want to keep it stock. But it’ll make an excellent logging road and camping rig.
PS. If anyone has some 15” tires they want to get rid of, hit me up.
