This is actually a 1987 AMC Jeep, but
review selections don't go back that
far. I have been looking at SUV reviews
for my daughter and was shocked at the
low milage ratings. I have always
gotten between 23-26 MPG/HWY on this
manual transmission 4 liter Cherokee.
The past 6 months it has been 27 mpg,
perhaps due to new oversize 235-75-R15
tires, even with 168000 miles on the
engine. I remember when we ordered it
new, the salesman seemed surprised at
the non-standard rear end, with a
comment of "Well, you should get good
milage." Perhaps that is the cause of
a sluggishness I noted from the
beginning, like riding a bike uphill in

This was my mothers before I got my hands on it and when I did it got beat on like there was no tomorrow. The thing is a daily driver with its True Mileage Unknown, I estimate around 300,000 on the motor.(rebuilt trans, new rear, u joints, steering box, are a few things changed but none of them went i just want to keep it around forever)I've taken it all over from 4x4ing to beating hondas around town and racing on the highway. I even towed my friends 79' Bronco out of a mud pit with it. The 4 low rocks. Its just a great truck, that simple.
Btw Just watch the trasfer case clearance when goin hard core off road with a stock one, it kinda sticks out.
