#1811 of 2588 Anyone with inside cargo dimensions info?
Dec 29, 2005 (4:08 pm)
Hi all - I have a 1997 Jeep Cherokee - 130K - love it dearly, but it's been hit and hit hard 3 times in the last 2 years. Repaired each time, but odds are I need to replace it sometime soon...I need something preferably in the Jeep/DC family that will hold dog crates and luggage at the same time, but I REALLY don't want a minivan - would make me feel like my mom! Essentially I need minimum dimensions of lxwxh, 42x42x30 to hold the 2 smallest crates. My current cherokee doesn't leave much leftover. Anyone got a Grand Cherokee (body style before the current one) that they know the inside dimensions of? I rented an 05 Grand - the crates wouldn't fit in through the back hatch door - not enough height clearance - bummer!

i am a cop working a hit and run investigation from last night. i was able to recover a small amount or physical evidence, a portion of a headlight door that appears to fit with a 1995 jeep cherokee the lower outer portion of this. while being almost dead on, it is made of different plastic than the stock that i have seen and there is a groove on the bottom that is slightly wider. could this be an afertmarket part? any help would be greatly appreciated. i am fairly sure on the make but have to be sure thanks

thanks for the help, i imagine that many companies produced these parts and the mold could vary slightly, originally one of the guys that i talked to had suggested that the part or portion therof was a thicker plastic which led him to believe that it was from a placement on a vehicle that was below the bumper. however the area of impact on the deceased was upper thigh area / mid torso( 5'3
" approx. height of the deceased) leading me to believe that it was more in the headlight area. the pic that you posted is what i believe to be consistent except flat black in color. i guess what i am trying to figure out is differences in plastic quality and thickness between stock and aftermarket parts.

The base model Cherokees had black plastic bezels, but otherwise were identical to the one shown above. Here is a picture of my '01. I thought it might give you an idea of its placement on the vehicle.

My Jeep just got over 100K. Love it, NEVER had problems. When I drive it like 'stalls' as you drive. At first, it was like a 'skip', loss of power and then right back on. Now, it 'stalls'and I have to pull over. I just got a new battery and PepBoys checked all the electrics, and they said that was ok. It could happen twice in a day, or once in two weeks. I can't make it happpen, it just does. If I try to restart the vehicle, it's like it is not firing up. If I wait a bit, it turns over and runs. Then I cannot make it stall or re-occur. I also tried adding dry gas to the tank. No luck...any suggestions?"

I really think it is electrical. I would check all the connections for all the sensors. Could be nothing more than a loose connector. My bet is on a crank position sensor, distributor pickup, or distributor pack itself. However, the next time it dies and won't restart, try this. Turn everything off, then turn the key to the run position. You should hear an electric motor running near the back of the Jeep for about two seconds. If you can't hear it running, then it's the fuel pump or fuel pump relay.
