Assalam o Aleikum.
I have an opportunity to purchase a Jeep Cherokee 1997 for 3.5 lacs (which i presume is a good deal)
The car is in so-so condition.... mechanically i can give it a 7, no work in the shocks department, gear was smooth, steering whell also smooth. the body needs total paint. new wind screens and other minor cosmetic stuff.
the deal is that I want to change the original 4.0 engine to a 2.5. The goal is to keep it fun to drive for a little off roading, yet keep it real with the fuel consumption.
I am assuming that a good toyota engine and gear should be around 125-150 k
and along with the other bells and whistles, say another 150k, so the car should be in sexy condition in about 6 or 6.5 lacs.
my question to you guys....
Q1: Is the budget that I am imagining ok?
Q2: which engine will be suitable for such a project?
Q3: In in Karachi and a few people tell me that parts are difficult to locate, while others say sher sha is full of Cherokee parts...
comments freely brothers. thanks in advance.
