Default 99 Cherokee Weekend Family Go-Getter

I just picked up the 1999 Cherokee Sport last weekend. The issue we have is that my regular truck is a 1999 Toyota Tacoma Pre-Runner. It makes it difficult to take the wife, 14yo and 3yo daughters anywhere. My wife's car is a 2005 Ford Focus and it's a bit small to get comfortable going anywhere. I looked around and found the Cherokee. It has a few small things going on which I am taking care of this weekend, after that I will go over it with a better eye and fix anything dealing with safety or performance.


As of right now I have this to fix:


Replace all windshield wipers front and rear. DONE 1/21/17


Front right turn signal lense broken. I am replacing both as the price was too good to turn away. Besides I don't want one new one and one all faded. DONE 1/27/17


Struts for rear hatch are wasted. I have a new set ready to install. DONE 1/26/17


No radio in the truck. I have a new one ready and the install kit. I got lucky and the previous owner did not cut up the factory wiring for the radio. Should make for a smooth install. Done 1/28/17


Need to rewire front speakers.


Need to replace air bag clock spring. Done 2/4/17


Need to replace front wheel bearing hubs. Done 2/4/17


New wheels and tires - because why not???


Replaced front shocks. Done 2/4/17


Replace rear shocks.


Headliner is falling here and there.


Install usb power outlet for rear seat


I'll attach a few pictures of where I'm at right now and my progress.


This should be fun and keep me busy.

Looks like a clean start to me. 2wd or 4wd? Glad to see another member in the IE!

Sorry about that... 2WD.

Thanks. She's totally stock and seems to be well taken care of.

I'm in Colton.

Hey Frank, why not update your original post instead of making a similar one? The moderators will merge them both together.

Missing the 4x4 decals on the back which either it was repainted or its 2wd lol

It's actually a 2WD automatic. Doesn't appear to be repainted.

No big deal. I started with a 2wd as well! Going to be 4wd next week though. Hard to find a clean 4wd in this area. I work in Colton so maybe I will see you around!

Its really clean! its nice to get something that wasn't someone's garbage.
My first XJ STILL has stains i couldn't get out of the seats, had mildew growing on the roof from the kid never washing it, and i found 13 dollars in change scattered throughout it when i first got it.

Thanks Guy.
I did find 55 cents, a 3/8 small combination wrench and an amp under the seat which I will be taking out.
