Default (VA) 99 Cherokee Classic | 149k miles | Auto | 5.5 Long Arm | 33s

Asking: $7000

I bought this stock at around 130k miles (late-2012), used it as my daily driver for a year, and then started the transformation into what you see now. I am selling because I now have two kids and play-money needs to go towards more practical things. It drives straight with NO death wobble. Exterior is in good condition; no body damage, some rust at rear quarters, and some paint fade on roof. Interior is CLEAN; barely any wear. Headliner just started coming loose in a couple spots within the last few months. It just had a new battery and new alternator installed a few months ago.

The post-lift installation has seen less than 500 miles and ZERO offroad. After I completed the installation (which took me a year of on/off work), I started traveling a lot for work, then had my first child, and now my second child just recently. No time. It’s been a driveway ornament with the occasional drives to work to keep everything lubed up.

Below is a list of most of the modifications. If you are a serious buyer, I have a spreadsheet I can send you with the entire list of mods (with part numbers), as well as an online album full of photos from the build process.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for looking!

just out of curiosity... Did you ever have a black Mustang Mach 1? I'm pretty sure there was a guy in my area that had a black one with speed of sound on the plate and user name on SVTP

Sorry man, but I have to keep it pretty local due to some other obligations.
