Matt Farah Finally One Takes a Lifted Jeep Cherokee XJ
While at the FIRM, Matt Farah of The Smoking Tire took a lifted Jeep Cherokee XJ on the company’s off-road course and got it nice and dirty.
When Jeep produced the first XJ Cherokee in the 1980s, it simultaneously created a unibody vehicle, an off-road-capable SUV…and future diehards.
Is the current Cherokee a better off-roader than its XJ ancestor?
While in reverse, this XJ owner squeezed the throttle and high centered the Jeep on its rear axle, breaking some stairs in the process, and leaving poor “Scooby” stranded.
When Four Wheeler’s 1999 Jeep Cherokee gives up the ghost, the site can just yank off the parts it wants to transfer to another rig. That’s why the publication is calling its XJ “Project Disposable Hero.”
