Unusual Jeeps You Don’t See Everyday
This Jeep is a great example of what you can do with a 1986 Jeep Cherokee. It belongs to Mark Blair and was featured in Hot Rod Magazine in 2011. It even made a screen debut on an episode of the popular show, “Speed’s Pass Time.” The Jeep cost Mark a whopping $200 to buy. The previous owner decided to give it up after he received the quote to replace a faulty headlight switch.
Mark went right to work and installed a 505 CI Chrysler V8 engine, billet rods, indie cylinder heads, and of course a two-stage nitrous system. That means this Jeep will tear up the drag strip in record time. Contributing to that feat is the fact that he installed an ATI power glide transmission to ensure smooth shifting. So what’s the fastest this Jeep can go? Well, how about 162 mph. Not bad for an ’86 Cherokee. And you thought they were just for trail riding.
