2001 Jeep Cherokee XJ 4×4

Current bid of $8,700

Place Bid

TFL’s Take: This Cherokee XJ comes with the desirable 5-speed manual transmission and legendary 4.0-liter engine. Yes, it’s got a lot of miles, but has been rebuilt in terms of the engine, transmission, and suspension, and for an Illinois truck, the lack of body rust is amazing. Call it a reborn Jeep that’s ready for another decade or more of adventures. XJ’s are holding their value now (fully stock ones are increasing in value), which should make this one a solid investment.


  • For auction, a modified 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport XJ 4×4 four-door with Forest Green exterior and Agate gray interior with gray cloth seats. There are 173,272 miles on the odometer but only 21,000 miles on the rebuilt engine and transmission.
  • This Jeep has a clean title with no bank loans or liens against the vehicle

AutoCheck report shows no accidents or damage and a registration history in Chicago and Illinois up until 2017-2019, when the Jeep was registered in Indiana. It is currently registered in Illinois. Seller is selling because the nearest off-road area recently closed to vehicles and he can’t enjoy it as much as he’d like. Seller has full documentation of all the rebuild and upgrade work done to the Jeep.

    A lively end to this auction, but we didn’t clear the reserve even though we were closing in on it fast. This is a great Jeep with a lot of money and care put into it. We’re sure it’ll find a new home at the right price to the seller sometime soon. You can’t keep a Jeep like this down!

    What do you think are the chances this will pass California smog? The new cat all 50 states ?

    • XJTom

      I would say close to 100%. The 2001 Cherokee I believe was the only model year that was built to California smog requirements. It has 2 cats up at the exhaust manifold and 4 O2 sensors. All of the sensors and cats are new and 50 state legal. It passed IL smog with no issues.

    • oddreign

      Hi, is this still available for sale? I’m in Chicago and would be interested. Thanks.

    • TFL Grant

      Yes, however if I put you in touch with the buyer, we reserve the right to charge you the 5% buyer’s fee on the transaction for bringing you together with the seller if you go through with the purchase. Is that something you’d be willing to do?

    • oddreign

      I expected as much, like a finder’s fee. So sure, no problem. Thanks.

  3. Tomhutchison

    Awesome job on the re-build renovation.
    There’s 15 k in this with engine, exhaust, ps, tires, wheel, trans conversion etc.
    I did the same depth conversion on a 3500 GMC Quigley and this work is better than I was able to source. Nice job.

  4. izaltsman

    How tall is this Jeep (from the ground to the top of the spare on the roof)?

    • XJTom

      Hi. I’m the owner. I will measure it when I get home. It does clear my garage door by an inch or so. But I will try to provide an actual measurement later today.

    • XJTom

      The height to the top of the roof basket spare tire is 80”.

    • izaltsman

      Thanks for measuring! I really appreciate it!

  5. JCheeto

    Going to keep my eye on it that green 5 speed would be great in northern Arizona

  6. Jlopez710

    I’m from Colorado do I have to fly out there and pick up?

    • TFL Grant

      That’s up to you. You can certainly pay to ship it out to Colorado for several hundred bucks. That’s not a service we provide, however, but we can offer some referrals.

    • kurtafoy

      What is the reserve price?

    • TFL Grant

      Once bidding reaches the reserve price, I’ll post a notice here in the Comments section and change the title of the listing to start with “Reserve Met…”
