Now and then

Got back my first tow vehicle, a 1992 Jeep Cherokee Sport, used to tow motorcycles to Florida and Sturgis. My daughter learned to drive in it and took it away to college in 1998, returned to me in 2004 and used by my step daughter to learn to drive in 2007, given to my step son in 2010 and finally returned home to me yesterday, with 200K miles on odometer, motor/trans strong, needs work on brakes and suspension. Some before and after pictures...

Love those old Cherokees with the 4.0L inline six. I had a 1990 and a 1998.
