    My wifes daily is up for grabs. It's just too damn small to cart all our crap back and forth to the river with 2 kids so I think it's time for a Tahoe or even a suburban. Jeep has 91k mi on it, engine is a brand new 2018 mopar long block with around 1000mi on it. 300mi on break in oil the rest is on redline. Modern muscle stage 3 nsr cam, hellcat non mds lifters, mds delete. Custom tune and runs perfect. Interior is pretty decent, cooled/heated seats, navigation, 20190612_195939.jpg 20190612_195949.jpg 20190612_200000.jpg 20190612_200141.jpg 20190612_200221.jpg 20190612_200307.jpg exterior just had a full paint correction done and looks pretty damn good but it has a few bumps and bruises.

    28k OBO

    My wife has one, loves it, although I wish hers had that engine in it. What happened to the factory engine, take a dump?

    Ive driven one. It was an animal with AWD.

    I hate buying rear tires constantly. I cant imagine all four. ;)

    This one has a 392 6.4 right? Kinda looks like it does. It is the right year for it anyway.

    Yea, what happened to engine #1? Was there a core with that deal? Did you turn it in?

    The original 6.4 had MDS (displacement on demand) and they are notorious for killing lifters. Basically the wheel on the mds lifter gets hammered and stops turning, and grinds the cam lobe down to a circle and causes a misfire. Once it starts the misfire it's already sent like 3/8 of an inch worth of cam lobe thru the entire engine. So in lieu on tearing apart the old motor going thru, cleaning, checking, polishing and replacing a bunch of shit I opted for the quicker (more expensive) way. New mopar long block with new updated oil pump, new oil cooler, new water pump. 20190613_134240.jpg

    It's cheap enough you should have some left over cash to get it wrapped!

    I really like the white ones.

    Is the fuel mileage better on the Gen 2 compared to the first gen SRT Cherokee’s?

    I'll be honest I dont drive it much (which is probably a good thing) to know what kinda mpgs it gets. I think the computer might say like 12-14...?

    But honestly if your looking for an economical car you not looking at srt gc's.

    I can tell you it gets PLENTY of Smiles Per Gallon!!
