I recently picked up a 1996 Jeep Cherokee (retired US Forest Service unit) with 92K miles. Bought this one from my dad who had let it sit for the 2-3 years due to an overheating issue.
New Radiator, water pump, engine and heater core flush, shocks, front brake job (Calipers, Pads and Rotors), new tires, wiper blades and an alignment.
Hope to get the differential, xfer case and tranny fluids changed tonight.
It did pass inspection so getting close to having her road ready.

Where are you located? I have some leftover parts like a swing out spare carrier and running boards here in central California

When, ot if, the coolant recovery tank fails, rather than waste money on inferior replacements, spend money on the aluminum tank and only do it once. These rigs were prone to tank failures leading to overheating and cra ked heads.
