Vehicle Description

2001 Jeep Cherokee XJ 4WD Limited, Original, RARE Up Country Suspension, All Records
*Feb 2023: I reduced the price as I've been driving it a bit and the mileage is now (around) 171,000. Has this impacted anything else in the ad? No, it has not. I'll also get the smog updated for the new owner. 
I am selling my much-loved Jeep XJ, purchased new in Colorado Springs in January 2001, then driven to Northern California (Bay Area), where it has spent its happy days. I'm parting with it only because I'm moving toward a walkable lifestyle. It used to be my daily, and the early miles were mostly highway miles (some back and forth from Denver to the Bay Area early on). Now it's my weekly, or sometimes monthly. She sits, then always starts right up.
I originally leased the vehicle, but loved it so much (this is my third Jeep), I decided to buy out the lease. The clean title, original sales documents, all records, and some cool extras are waiting for you.
if you know XJs, you know the famous inline six engine, when cared for, will go forever. Also, finding a clean one is difficult. This one has never seen smoke, accidents, rust, kids, pets or off-roading. It is even harder to find an original XJ that hasn't been tampered with, one with Limited trim, one owner, and Up Country suspension to top it off — which is why this is a very special and rare vehicle.
This Jeep will work as your daily, occasional use, or kept as a collectible. The only three things I modified (out of necessity) are: 1) I replaced driver's bottom seat cushion to OEM spec; 2) I replaced (and rewired) OEM front speakers and tweeters; 3) I replaced the windshield due to a traveling stone chip. Other than parts and maintenance, the rest is as she came. 
I also recently replaced the A/C compressor (ice cold), all four tires plus new matching spare, new Legend battery, and the required California smog, so she's ready to go. Please see the original window sticker for specs, and two photos attached for complete repair history and associated mileage. 
Pickup in North Bay Area, California. Wire transfer or cash only. I'll release title when full transaction clears, including DMV online turnover. Jeep sold as is, no warranties implied.

What Isn’t Pristine (my intent has been to preserve originality)

Original headliner a bit saggy (adds to its charm).
Driver’s heated seat doesn’t work, passenger’s toasty 
Some California patina (sun fading) on paint, decals peeling
She’s been “bumped,” dings and scrapes on bumper and fenders
Driver’s overhead mirror has no light, passenger’s lighted
Driver's window makes a brief, loud sound when closed (but works fine, see video)
Not garaged last five years, gauges no longer bright orange
Someone broke off the original antenna in a parking lot years ago. I stuck on a shorty replacement as I don't use the radio much. Otherwise, the AM/FM works great.
