Why It’s Curated: This 1979 Jeep Cherokee Chief is for sale in Austin, Texas. The SJ Cherokee was the truck that was first called a Sport Utility Vehicle when it was introduced in 1974. The wide body and axle Chief model was introduced in 1976. This example has a GM Vortec Swap with a new transmission, Warn winch and bumpers, and a lot of recent maintenance, see details below, totaling almost $40,000. This truck could be everything from a trail crawler, overlander, or even a daily driver. We’d love to have such a unique truck in the garage to use on weekend getaways with the family. Please let us know if you have any questions about this truck.
