Default New kid on the block

I've gotten a lot of help from the threads on this forum and figured I'd join you all. I've had my 2000 Jeep Cherokee Classic since April this year (2011), picked it up for 4k, it's only got 108,085 miles on it and runs beautifully. When I first got it I had to get a new radiator put in it, the left side tank, the hot side, had a crack on the top. $351.80

AC doesn't work, might just need to be recharged, but the pully/clutch on the compressor doesn't engage, who cares, that's what windows are for. Come October, I find out I don't have any heat. So I drain my coolant and it's got a heavy red/orange color to it and chips in it. I paid for a radiator and a flush, not for them to just connect a new one, I could have done that... had a new serpentine belt put on too, heat works now, but now that it's cold, a pully is sqeaking and I'm not sure which one. (More about this in one of the support forums) I love my jeep though and I hope I can keep it till I'm 50. Handles snow and ice beautifully.

Well, anyway, I'm new here, so hi, you can just call me soup.
