Cherokee
Default looking at getting a new project

I owned a 1985 cherokee 2dr for 7 years with a 2.8l and a 1989 4dr inline 6 4.0l I am looking at getting back into a jeep cherokee, as a project and daily driver, I want to build it so I have found a 1985 with 2.5L 4cyl 5spd, and a 1989 6 cyl auto , not sure how the 4cyl performs.

I've read from some that had the 4 cyl. saying it was vastly underpowered for the Cherokee.

I've had a few... Cherokee

4.0 or gtfo.

the 89 is a renix (really reliable), but I am a h.o. fan for life. (92-1996 is the best years imo)

I can speak from experience the non HO 4.0L are very reliable. I now have a 96 with the HO and very satisfied with it. Get the 4L.
