Replacing Starter on a 1997 Jeep Cherokee XJ

Starter went out the other day while changing the battery.  The starter is the original, so its lasted a long time.  I plan to do a write up of the removal and installation of the starter.

1997 Jeep Cherokee XJ towing a 2012 Bayliner Capri 175

Well, I took the plunge and purchased my first boat.  I was worried my XJ might have trouble pulling the boat, but so far so good.  I’ve always wanted a boat, so this is truly a dream come true.  Fun times ahead…

XJ Pod & Amp Install on 1997 Jeep Cherokee XJ

0 Comments

I recently added an amp and XJ Pod to my 1997 Jeep Cherokee XJ.  The install was pretty simple.  I ended up installing the amp underneath the back seat on the drivers side.  I secured it by using velcro strips stuck to the amp with 3M tape stuck to the carpet underneath the seat.  I was able to hide all of the wires for the speakers, amp, and RCA pretty easily by running them along the side panels of the vehicle.

The XJ Pod mounted really nice.  I still need to paint it to match my interior.  Otherwise it looks great and it sounds fantastic!  I have a Harman Kardan system in another vehicle and I would say this system sounds nearly as good.  I would say the only negative is Im getting a little vibration here and there.  It would be great if I could pack some insulation in the doors and around the panels.  Anyway, here are some photos below of my recent project.

Where to buy Fender Flare Brackets for a 97-01 Cherokee XJ

0 Comments

I’ve been searching for fender flare brackets for my XJ for at least 6 months.  I bought new Fender Flares a long time ago but haven’t been able to install them because my old brackets are all rusted.  I tried removing my old brackets carefully but all the bolts broke off each one.

I was finally able to find a complete set of new brackets for every fender at JeepsAreUs.com.  If you are one of the many folks looking for new fender flare brackets, click on the link below.
