    Default 89 Cherokee XJ

    Hey guys, Greg from Long Island. Long time since I got up your way but 2020 has not been good. I'm moving and have to downsize and will not be in wheeling territory and will not have the space/facilities required to maintain so I'm selling my Jeep and everything I have that goes with it. Below is description but there's even more so if interested please call me at 631.219.4686 and we can discuss price. Great Jeep that really wheels well.

    Package deal and will not break up. Jeep, Trailer and 4.6 stroker short block.

    Thnx Anthony. Club discount is available.
    Also I noticed typo. The pistons are .030 over but crank is ground .010 under. Got a little slap happy there.
