Welcome to the insanity. I saw your Cherk on CL awhile back. Glad you were able to snag it.

Something odd here about this 80 Cherokee purchase. This same truck is currently for sale on the local Craigslist, still sitting in the same garage as the photo here shows. Wonder what gives with that?
The seller told me at his been sitting in his garage for a couple of years.
