Default MOBBiNs 2001 Alaskan build

Hi everyone my name is Sam and im from Eagle River. Im kinda new to Jeeps. Its my second Cherokee and this thread is just to keep the progress of my jeep. Its a 2001 Cherokee classic bought it from CARR Chevy in Vancouver Wa. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone....

I got into jeeps after my long addiction to fast Subarus. I wanted to try something new so I went out and found a low mileage black XJ

Spring 2010

I had to repin the main connector. The jeep I pulled it from was a 97-99 the the wiring was a little different. Once I figured all that out it worked perfectly. I just need the tempature sensor and it'll be completed
