Default Building my 96 jeep

03 June 10
I picked up a 96 Cherokee sport $500.00
heater did not work, have to manually shift automatic, radio sucks only picks up 1 station, 2 rust holes back of roof, head liner sagging, and oil pressure gauge is maxed.

I bought so far
new fuel filter, heater control valve, antifreeze and flush, oil and filter, oil pressure switch, air filter, throttle position sensor, and ordered a new/used tcm.

i feel like i am just starting to scratch the surface lol

Have you checked in local junk yards for parts??? I could purchase all needed parts for mine brand new... but don't mind saving a couple bucks on as many parts as I can find in the JY...

Default fuel pump

well the Haynes book says fuel psi should be at 46-51 and if it is low buy new pump and if its high buy a new regulator
and i picked up some good tires 31x10.5x15 on jeep wheels. The wheels look better in the pic maybe ill pant them
