Moses I have fallen into an opportunity to purchase a 1976 Jeep Cherokee Chief for a reasonable price and would like your "What to look for" advice. The truck is in regular use and makes 200 mile trips hauling a family to camping trips several times a year. They just need a larger vehicle as they now have to take two SUV's to get everbody there, As I said, it is a 1976 but with several upgrades, some I like, some I don't know yet. V8 360, factory 2 Bbl. 2150 carb with 727 AT and Twin Stick Dana 300 transfer case,. 4" Spring lift with proper shocks etc. and 33-12.50X15 AT Tires. AC works but has small leak, easy enough t fix.. Non original front seat, but all else is original. Very rust free but has had front floor pans replace in the past. The power back window works well also.. From what I can find, the Dana 300 was not stock in 76, but could be a very good upgrade due to its strength, not that I am going to do serious offroading. I am going to look at it this weekend and taking a buddy who has rebuilt one Chief and just bought another for a rebuild, so will have some expertise with me. I also bought a 2006 LJ with 47K miles that I am going to sell as I do not like the newer Jeeps compared to my CJ7.. Your comments please, Thanks, Gene
