The ’92 XJ’s
Through an odd twist of fate, I wound up owning two very similar 1992 Jeep Cherokee’s (XJ). The first ’92 I purchased as a commuter as I had sold off my of my commuter, a 2003 Dodge Neon. I wound up working closer to home with a new job, so fuel mileage wasn’t as big of a worry, plus with the sale of the Neon, we were able to finish paying off the wife’s car (no more car payments for us!).
The first ’92 was pretty plain vanilla, but after I got done puttering around with it, it had working A/C and drove pretty nicely:
The rocker panels were completely gone on it, but it was otherwise pretty solid:
The interior was pretty nice as well, and it even had the rare cargo cover option:
That ’92 got sent down the road to help pay for my second go around in college. A friend gave me a ’91 Toyota to bang around in while I was in between cars (I miss that little truck!)
The second ’92 was purchased solely to take us out west on the cheap. Since my ’87 XJ wasn’t exactly a good highway cruiser for the wife, I figured we’d risk a $2k XJ trip:
This thing was pretty darn nice! The Leather was in great shape:
And it also had the rare cargo cover option:
With the canyon wheels on the thing, it looked slick:
As I stated earlier, this XJ’s role in life was to take us for our first trip out west, and back, for less than it would have cost us to rent something. I can safely say it pulled it off quite well, and I was able to sell it for a slight profit to boot!
Here is the post on that trip (click me!)
