Selling my Jeep Cherokee Sport SUV Manual 5 Speed. I now have three small children and I'm not able to spend the time hunting that I would like

I bought the Jeep in 2019 and have used it primarily as a hunting vehicle although I did use it as a primary vehicle for 9 months in 2022. I saw all my buddies buying these expensive side-by-sides for hunting and spending $20K-$30K doing it. I wanted something cheaper that could also keep me warm and dry as well as hold all of my hunting gear. It is the perfect hunting vehicle.

Cranks and runs fine. The vehicle is road worthy, I drove it from Hoover to Jemison and back to hunt. Has been garage kept or covered most of the time I've owned it. It has not been used to mud-ride as I wanted to keep the vehicle running and road worthy and not tear it up. The Jeep is water-tight with functional heating and air conditioning. All power windows work. Radio and CD player work.

I have spent money on getting the air conditioning to work, getting all the windows to work, replaced the alternator, replaced all the shocks, replaced the old tires with 31x10.5x15 BFG All-Terrains (less than 10K miles on the tires), replaced the battery, bought seat covers, Mickey Thompson wheels. etc. I've got close to $5K on these additions and can provide receipts saying as much.

The transmission was rebuilt by the previous owner. I have had no issues out of the transmission at all and can supply the paperwork that was given to me by the previous owner. I knew the previous owner and his son, it was their project vehicle. I bought it from them and continued to chip away at little projects.

The Jeep has the legendary 4.0L inline-six engine, renowned for its reliability, this engine is known as "the bullet proof six." 4WD works in Low but not in High. I have rarely had to put it in 4WD so Low was plenty fine for my use. I've maintained regular servicing and care at Express Oil Change. Mechanically it is a sound vehicle. Cosmetically it is what it is, I have not focused on the cosmetics of the vehicle as I was more inclined to spend time on the functionality of it.

Clean title in hand, no liens. Ready to sell. $6,500 OBO
