Quick update. I've been working on fixing up the air filter box, cleaning up the paint, removed the rear bumper side parts and straightened the bumper and cleaned the carb. The carb cleaning helped a lot, but that and fixing up the air filter housing it sounds awful now. I found the issue with the crankshaft position sensor, the old one wasn't removed and was just hanging.......

Next is some rear drum brake, driver door adjustment and exhaust work. The old muffler sounds like shit and I am hoping a new quieter one will make it sound smoother. I have started sourcing seats, but havent found anything yet.

Thanks! That is very helpful and narrows my search considerably.

Does anyone have a good/cheaper suggestion for replacing the drivers bucket seat? It is too short for me, and I would like one that has a good head rest.

Interesting on the sway bars. Ill have to try that. The new sway bars didn't fit quite right, but I managed to get them installed minus the quick release. I think If I use wing nuts, I can get them to pop off quite quickly. Here are a few pics at work up a mountain and post plug/wire change.

Does anyone know what the sensor thing on the second last pic is? It fell off and was smashing against the front crankshaft. I haven't been able to find where it should go. I thought it was the crankshaft position sensor, but there is one installed where that should be.

Seriously considering the Civic comment :) I may just turn this into a bit of a project log, pictures to come.

I have been working on it a lot in the last month. I changed the rotor/dist cap/wires/plugs and that made a difference. It still really needs a tuneup. I managed to break the head off of one of the bolts for the front driveshaft CV joint, that has driven me a bit crazy, then drilled it out and screwed up tapping it, need a new input yoke, or to put in a bigger bolt. Oh well, a few more bucks down the toilet ;) Fixing lots of funny little problems with electrical, windows, door parts. Next on the list is getting proper sized disconnect-able sway bar end links and some brake work.

If anyone is out junk yarding and sees an older model Cherokee, please let me know!
