I have a 1986 Jeep Pioneer that I just got. everything seems to be fine except... my windshield wipers do not work, that didn't seem like a big deal to me, but when I went to drive at night my headlights didn't work. When I pulled the little light knob, nothing came on but my side lights, and the only way I had head lights is with my brights. But when I turn those on my digital clock turns off. I have no clue what I should do...help??? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org thanks!!

I have a 1985 Jeep Cherokee.
I was reading through the posts and thought that I should brag about it because it has the most miles on it than any of the other commented.
My Jeep Cherokee has 245000+ miles on it, I love the thing and the funny thing is my speedometer is off 3 mph every 25 because of over sized tires. So in reality there are a lot more miles on it.
Unfortunately I've had hassles with vacuum lines leaking and my worst problem was the stock carburetor just about split in half after I bought the vehicle 3 years ago. Recently after having a rebuilt carb start to fall apart. I've installed a new Weber Carb, it runs amazing, the only thing left to do is remove the computer from talking to the distributor because it governs the spark limiting the massive power gain from the new Carb. Just thought I'd brag about my 245000 mile Jeep =)

I drive a 96 Jeep Cherokee. I love it! It is 5 gear stick 4w drive. I would not trade it for the world. So when I got a deal on a 1988 4 door Limited Edition Wagoneer. I got it for 300.00. Did not have battery, or starter relay. I have been working on it. Had to redo the headliner. But I am having fun doing it. The Jeep runs like a top. I am a female and just turned 61.

I brought a 1988 Jeep with 171,000 miles on it with a loud water pump, but it ran smooth and never over heated until I changed the water pump. Can someone help me?

I bought a 92 Cherokee Country 4.0 2x4 for $800 from my landlord. The engine had already been rebuilt, left rear bumper pushed in, crack in windshield and headliner drooping. My '00 Xterra had just crapped out after 205K, we bought this Jeep with 242K on it, it now has 276K just a year later and I just replaced the radiator from one at the junkyard. Parts are easy to replace, JeepForums are great support. This thing has a Toyota transmission in it so it's going to go for a while yet. It looks like hell, but it drives like a tank. I've driven it from LA to SF and back several times this year. Too bad they stopped making them in '01.
