Ok, I'll make it easy for ya...lol



2004 Grand Cherokee Overland Edition.


ENGINE - 4.7HO
TRANSMISSION - 45RFE
TRANSFER CASE - 247
FRONT AXLE - DANA 30
REAR AXLE -DANA 44A
GEAR RATIO - 3:73
TRACTION AID - VARI-LOC

I call her the Meat Wagon . Bought her used for 2700$ with 119,000 MI . She has heated front seats with up to two driver memory . Dual zone climate control . Adjustable pedals . Infinity factory sound system. Outside she sports the Overland rock rails and full factory skid package. It's definitely not pretty on the outside but the interior is in great shape (less the deer blood and hay). Dispite looking like Helen Keller's first car , the Overland tows nice with a 6500lb rating.it suits my needs and gets me to my hunting ,fishing and camping spots.

There are no bruises of honor here. The young girl I bought it off of ,hit ice and spun out. Hitting every body panel on the way around. I have a set of Bushwacker fender flares on the shelf waiting for my gimp @$$ to get them on. They should cover most of the damage.

What the hell.
My Jeep is stock for the most part I guess.
2000 Cherokee Sport
4.0 with an automatic
2 tone Camel/Agate interior
LP D30
8.25 open rear
3.55 gearing

When I bought her she had power windows, door locks, power/heated mirrors, rear defogger, the Eccos, the enclosure and the 6 CD changer in the back. That enclosure and CD changer I believe to be a dealer installed option. Has a wired and wireless remote.

Mods are pretty much limited to a 4 hole injector upgrade and the '98 Grand Cherokee 5.9 louvers cut in the hood. Oh I did put an inline T fitting, capped off on one of the ports, where the oil sending unit is. This was so I could check my oil pressure with a mechanical gauge anytime I want with minimal effort.

I have added a fair amount of factory options she was not equipped with.
Aftermarket factory looking fogs wired like aftermarket ones but utilizing a factory switch.
Factory front and rear tow hooks
All the factory skids
Factory running boards and rear mud flaps
Swapped out all the tinted glass for factory privacy glass
Swapped out the one piece cloth buckets for leather removable headrest ones. But they were is so so shape hence the seat covers.
Power seats both passenger and driver
Overhead console
Cruise control
Cargo cover (Remember in a 2000 it is just that cheesy tarp and not the retractable one.)
4 slot bezel
Extended Idle Switch (Don't get excited it is still not hooked up yet.)
Factory Infinity Tweeters
I did take the map pockets off a Country/Limited door panel and put them on mine.
Wood Grain radio bezel off a Country/Limited.
A '98 Grand Cherokee 5.9 tire cover. OK not a Cherokee option, even though European Orvis versions did come with a similar looking one, but still Jeep.
Tail light brush guards. I am putting them here cause I believe them to be Mopar ones but can't be sure.
Full Size Matching Spare. Came with one of those space saver ones and I can't even begin to tell you how much I hate those things.

Guess these would all fall under aftermarket accessories.
AVS rain guards and bug deflector
Grill inserts. Brand unknown. These were a Craigslist find.
EGR headlight protectors
Rugged Ridge Mats
CoverKing Seat Covers
Isimple device that lets me play my 160 GB Ipod through the factory stereo
A couple of what have to be aftermarket wood grain accents on the Cruise Control Switches and the Tranny bezel that I picked up.
Headlight harness with Britelite versions of factory headlights
LED's for all the exterior. Blinkers, brake/stop, and reverse.
LED's for all the interior lights. Overhead, rear cargo, and footwell
Turn signals, side markers, and tail lights that did away with the amber lens.

There are a couple little things I am probably forgetting.

Why I should win.

I blame you guys for all this. I bought the '00 as a fixer upper. I am older and don't thrash around out there any more. Still does not mean I won't own a Jeep. Figured a little refresh and with a little luck this will be the last 4X4 I buy in my lifetime. I came around here looking for insight into basic repairs. Then I saw all the things you guys were doing with your Jeeps. Pictures of all the options mine did not come with.

Simple little refresh my ***. LOL.
