MODEL: 1978 Cherokee Chief 'S' Levis edition
AXLES: D-44 F / R 3:54 gears
TIRES: 1O R-15 old style BFG All-Terrains

This rig was stock when I bought it in July '96 with 85,000 miles on it. At first I thought maybe it was 185K, but after having it for a while I have no doubt about the mileage. As far as I can tell nothing was changed on this thing until I got it. I think the previous owner / owners just drove it until it started needing repairs. Although the seat and carpet are worn and ripped a bit and there is a little rust, interior and exterior are actually in good shape considering the age. I have fixed a lot of little things but it runs great and I have had no major problems. As of Sep 97, it has 102K miles, gets 14 mpg and is a daily driver. The air conditioning has been converted to an air compressor. I have replaced the fuel tank, fuel pump, radiator, water pump, spark plugs and wires, coil, intake manifold gasket, and tie rod. My futuredream list includes a 3" lift, bigger and better tires, an E-Z locker or Lock Right for the front, and a radio that works.
