    Ya I know this video is 3 years , but my wife and I are jeep people, I'm actually still working on ours ! We have an 07 jeep liberty sport 4×4 , we picked her up with 145000 original miles , we are second owner , she currently has 205500 miles , she has the 3.7 , I've done a lot of work to her. All new brake calipers pads rotors , brake hoses , radiator, upper and lower hoses , , new radiator fan , new upper control arms lower ball joints , the list goes on and on , so yes I know exactly what you are talking about ! Rack and pinion front and rear bearings and seals , flushed everything! ! Now I think I need to replace the transfer case , select Trac ! It's making a clicking noise !

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bret4207 says:

    I'm way late in finding this, but I gotta watch it all now! I'm in the process of looking for a replacement for my rusted out '02 Burb. Daughter had a Gran Cherokee I liked, wifes got a 99 Wrangler we like and I've got my 83 Scrambler project (came from Alaska- no NYS rust!!!) and a couple of CJ5 field Jeeps. Now I'm going to have to see how your build turns out- you might push me over he edge!!!!

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Willie Gillie says:

    I think Eric liked the Jeep better the way it was. Maybe I’m wrong but it sure seems that way to me.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thomas brenneman says:

    Do you have any tshirts. With pockets for men?

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thomas brenneman says:

    Can we get a update on this jeep?

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Jeffery says:

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fattony6666 says:

    Are newer Jeeps generally better made than other Fiat/Chrysler products?

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jessie Sanchez says:

    Nice ride brother it's going to look 👌 Awesome.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andy Saunders says:

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars greg j. gotham says:

    Can ya tell me I have a 2002 4.7 with the select track 242 hd transfer case. I’m haveing a hell of a time finding u joints for it I’ve talked to many dealers I get conflicting information on which U joints to use ???? Both front and back u joints I want to change new u joints. Can you advise me on the u joints. It’s all u joints with the front drive line has the double cardan at the transfer case and a regular u joint at the front differential ? Help me if you can with part numbers for spicier u joints. If you reply I thank you.

    I got a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4.7L Quad drive when a friend's sister passed away. I test drove it for her before she bought it. The previous owner beat it pretty bad, mechanically. Body and drivetrain were solid. She had it about 2 years before she passed in 2008, about six months after I got it the engine died. 70k and it was junk. I put in a re-man crate 4.7L engine. I drove I daily until 2020 when I donated it to a local charity. Never got stuck in any conditions, I had in on beaches and thru snow. It walked right thru. The best vehicle I had.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars FrankieTuned says:

    Just bought myself a Wj and I'm super excited you've documented the lift process. How is your Wj doing? Have you done the transfer case swap yet? Would love an update video.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Smith says:

    You do realize when you get done with all this that this is not going to be your vehicle. Not with the girl you married. You'll be lucky if you get to ride in it 😜

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Smith says:

    You mean to tell me she wouldn't date you for your hard body handsome looks and financial skills. There's more of a Jeep and there was a dude with it 🥺

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Bowen says:

    Glad you left out the premaintenance for deez jeep. Good thinking. Jazzed about the future project, especially because I'm thinking you know what your doing on how to do it right and have the skill to get it done. I am excited too Great!.Have some fun.Know that us viewers will be having a good time along with you.cant hardly wait.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jacob Miller says:

    Gosh that smile on his face through out the video reminds me of when I got my first jeep. A 97 XJ 2dr, a kid in a candy shop doesn't even begin to explain it. I look forward to keep track of the update videos!!!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheMELTDOWN911 says:

    I feel sorry for such a immaculate original Grand Cherokee to be lifted : (

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Ivers says:

    Wow. All those issues! Sounds like a Jeep.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steviegtr says:

    I bought a brand new Jeep Grand cherokee Overland in 2003. It was the 2.3 mercedes 5 pot diesel engined version. It cost me £29000 UK. They offered me the V8 for just £26000. I did not buy because the Petrol in the Uk is a stupid price. I did 30,000 miles in it over 3 years. Only problems were seat heater change drivers side . Front ball joints had play. The rear diff was noisy because i had a puncture & fitted a new tire to one side only. Straining the diff for about 8000 miles. I sold it for from memory £6000. Massive loss over 3 years. Not very popular in the UK.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Reitzer-Smith says:

    I just bought a 185K 2001 WJ last month, and I need to do a lot of those "piddly" maintenance things that we do when we buy a used vehicle, so I am biased, and I completely get what you're saying about not wanting to risk your channel getting bogged down on a single vehicle, but having those videos available on Patreon would have made me a subscriber to your patreon (would have been a first for me) instead of just a random donator via paypal. You're my favorite YT mechanic for a lot of reasons. Would have loved a detailed look at my car through your eyes (and skilled hands). Not trying to bust your balls, just saying it's something to consider in the future. Love your stuff sir.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JohnClark says:

    Heated seats with leather…. talk about redundant.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Carole Reeves says:

    OH HOW I WISH I COULD FIND A REPLACE FOR MY 04 CHEROKEE THAT LOOKS LIKE THAT. JUST GOT THE NEWS MINE IS HEADING FOR THE LAST ROUNDUP

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hollywood Hand says:

    Never considered how lucky i am getting my vehicles in las Vegas till I started watching your videos! How the hell do you guys handle that rust

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thunder Road says:

    Poor guy likes chevys and jeeps lol

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 71Fenderv22 says:

    I've got to say those 4.7L HO engines Crysler built were some pretty powerful engines, I just wish there were more aftermarket parts available for them though….

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J. B. says:

    My dad learned to drive in a ‘42 Willy’s.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan Alan says:

    The guy that delivered the jeep looks like Mack Brown the ex longhorn coach

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kasual Skeptik says:

    We'll start calling him "Jeevy"…..

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sawtooth 46 says:

    This Jeep would be called a "cream puff" when I was growing up.

  50. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wyattoneable says:

    You did a great job editing the footage, especially the "Special Delivery" tie in because that wasn't even rehearsed. 🙂 Have fun with the project and thanks for a great time in your home.
