Default Intro! Jeep in the family!

Good Morning. My son saved every penny and bought a 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport this week. She's a bit rough around the edges. No rust, runs good but a bit noisy but we're all pretty excited about it! Just trying to learn as much as possible about Jeeps as he has in mind making improvements to it.

Welcome to the addiction! Pretty cool your boy worked/saved for his vehicle. Seems like a lost ability these days! A good tune up including fluid changes is always good. I feel it's worth mentioning the 00-01's had a couple of things to be aware of: the head was designed with a "prone-to-failure" design on the cylinder wall between #3 and 4. Also, the rear axle is a Dana 35 as opposed to the Chrysler 8.25. The d35 is a low pinion design with less splines than its c8.25 counterpart. NOT THAT ANY OF THIS IS AN END ALL, but it's good to be aware of! Regardless, jeeps are incredibly capable machines that are relatively cheap and easy to modify, not to mention repair! Have fun and happy trails.

You sure at least some didn't have a 35?

the 00-01 had both Dana 35 and Chrysler 8.25, but the front changed from high pinion to low pinion in 2000
