This is my kind of 4×4. Or one of my kind anyway. This 1977 Jeep Wagoneer, aka Cherokee Chief, is a two door SUV that oozes Jeep cool. If it were a 4-Door it might be even more family truckster awesome, but in 2-door trim this thing is tough as hell and a hard to find combo. It has a lot of work done to it, including the aforementioned LS Swap, and we’re sure it is ultra capable of hauling your and friends out into the middle of nowhere. Plus it looks cool as hell and is probably pretty quick considering what has been done to it.
There is a lot of information from the seller, so check it out below. PLUS THERE ARE MORE PHOTOS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE. And don’t forget to CLICK HERE TO SEE THE ORIGINAL AD.s
