CJ Jeep: Sporty Apperance For The First Time Around

Jeep was basically a redesigned reintroduction of a two door body style vehicle, with a single fixed rear side window with an optional flip-out section. Just in this generation, a two door version had been available in the Jeep Wagoneer line , though this had the same pillar and window configuration as the four-door Wagoneer possessed. From the concept of the the Wagoneer, the Cherokee XJ was marketed as the "sporty" two-door variant of Jeep's station wagon do in the auto industry. The term "Sporty" appears for the first time in the 1974 Cherokee sales brochure. A four-door was not added to the lineup until 1977 came and some improvements took place on the vehicles.

Apart from the changes in the trims, these vehicles received larger fenders and wider axles, allowing larger tires to be fitted to further improve off-road ability as well as the performance. Four-door models were not available with "wide-track" axles however. 

Cherokees were actually briefly assembled in Brisbane, Australia from 80s up to the recent generation, although their heavy fuel consumption and high cost in comparison with Japanese four-wheel drive vehicles made them uncompetitive in that market. When it comes to maintenance owners need not to worry since there are a lot of places where they can search for stuff. These days, even rare parts were available and can be easily accessed in the presence of the internet. These stuff include bumper covers, grilles, alternator and other jeep parts. However, there is a drawback on this method since not all the dealers are truly trusted.
