    I'm looking at buying myself a jeep in the next week or so, Here's what i've found.

    1989 Jeep Cherokee
    4.0 v6
    Black 2 door

    New engine with 100k on it, rebuilt transmission/transfer case
    New fuel pump

    The body is in IMPECABLE shape.

    3500$ obo... I'm gonna offer 2750-3000 for it.

    Sound liek a good deal?

    Also is there anything inpaticular i should look for? problems? signs of wear and tear?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    1st, the motor is inline, not a V.
    a ''new'' engine with 100k isnt really new, but if the owner cared for it, it will prob run to at least 200k. what was rebuilt in the transmission? (ie. just rings and seals, or were synchros and gears replaced?). how many miles are on the truck itself? is it lifted at all, any mods? the reason i ask this is because modded jeeps tend to wear down driveline parts faster (parts such as u-joints, driveshafts). a little more info about the truck will help you get better answers.

    if you look you can find 92-97 in the price range. You really should try to get a 91 or newer, but if you can get a 92 or newer. 91 is when they switched over to the high output 4.0 and 92 is when they switched to a open radiator system.

    That is way over priced.

    Ditto on the above... Stick with a '92-'96. Those were the best years.

    I bought a '96 Cherokee about 6-8 months ago in amazing shape for less than $3500 w/ 120K miles (original motor).

    That price is way too high for an '89 w/ rebuilt drivetrain...
