JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE 4.0 LIMITED QUADRATRAK "2" LPG GAS CONVERTED WITH MULTI POINT SYSTEM WITH LARGE ALLOY WHEELS
Hi All, ok - this is a spare or repair. My father was going to buy it off me and its been down his stables for approximately 6 months, but he cant be bothered to pay attention to it. Believe it or not, I paid bloody £3k for this only 12 months ago. I have had a transmission filter carried out, new exhaust, £300 to put a romano gas piece and gas service and other things. I have a business and used it for pricing work. So when things needed doing, I got them done straight away as is the case with all my vehicles. This vehicle started to have a knock on the left hand side when i turned left. I was told it was the CV joint. But when it goes through the automatic gears it knocks. Not always, just seems to happen if the joint area is already out of place. It happens in the early gears, once on motorway, your fine. Note: this does not happen all of the time, id say 50% of the time. The vehicle has leather interior, there is a JVC CD/DVD Player that clicks onto the front which is available. The vehicle has never pulled, although I have been told they are excellent pullers. The vehicle is a previous cat "d" write off, but was repaired and put back on the road by a previous keeper. The inside when clean is great, externally, it has been well used, scrached and a brake in the front bumper. When this was my primary vehicle, when cleaned, it was a good looking car. back windows are tinted.
When the knock happened,i took it to my local who has done the odd jobs on it, he asked me "do I want to start spending money?" as he knew I was looking for a new car. He said the knocking could be the CV joint or something else,but there is a fair bit of labour diagnosing the fault. He even said that on these vehicles, they are so sensitive that even something as small as tread being different on a prticular vehicle to the other tyres can throw it. As its a Quadratrak, which are excellent, they are sensitive on the wheels. Anyway, I decided, "what the hell" and bought a 4.4 sport X5. My father was then going to have it and now doesnt so hense on here. No TAX, NOT MOT, I have been down there 2 hours ago and it starts first time - only bummer is the right hand side rear tyre has gone down. I good pump and this should go back up. There is no spare, I didnt have it when I bought the vehicle as the LPG cylinder is in there.
Beast of a car in fairness, I just lose faith in cars very quick when things go wrong. I bought it to get back and fore the farm in the ice/snow.
What you see in the pictures is what you get, the CD/DVD Player/LPG Conversion/Leather Interior and scrap value for the car is worth something. Parts on these things are expensive and if broken up, you could make a couple of 'G's' no problem. I have been as honest as I possibly can be, if someone whos handy with cars, they could grab a bargin and a big car but cheap to run (LPG 65p a litre). Please no time wasters, I am extremely busy with the business, so no one can see it in the day,it would have to be in the night. My mobile number is 07976250920

I have had a question about the brake in the bumper. It is what I say - its hit something and cracked and split. I still used the vehicle with it. Vehicle has been standing for a long time but starts first time. Good engine on these things. But I do list as spare and repair due to faults indicated and general wear. My mechanic said it might not have been the cv joint as he could see that the top/bottom ball joints need attention but still drivable. Liternally spare or repair. Even if you strip this down, you can make a fortune, I paid £10 for one bulb for JEEP as no motor factors around here stock them!
Alot of people have offered £600-£700 buy now - sorry guys, im leaving it run till auction ends. Fairs fair although im happy with whatever I get for it!!
