ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

The vehicle you see here is a 2000 Jeep Cherokee that's in excellent condition. It's a desirable 4-wheel-drive model, the interior is in great shape, the exterior seems clean and free of damage and it's traveled just 139,000 miles -- low for an "XJ" Cherokee. The only drawback: it's right-hand drive.

For many years -- and still today -- Jeep has made right-hand drive vehicles primarily for rural postal carriers, who reach out the "passenger side" window to deliver mail. These postal carriers tend to prefer Jeep models largely because of inclement weather: much of rural America is in an area where it'll snow, sometimes heavily, so 4WD Jeep models make postal delivery possible.

Although virtually all right-hand drive mail vehicles today are Jeep Wrangler models, postal carriers in the past used Jeep Cherokee and Liberty models -- and even Subaru models back in the 1990s. This particular Cherokee is likely a vestige from the old days in the postal service, before it was sold to private owners -- though the ad notes that this Cherokee has "zero mail route miles," suggesting it may not have found a mail carrier buyer before making it into private hands.

Whatever its history, this Cherokee is certainly cool -- but many shoppers won't want a right-hand drive vehicle. If you want something a little more unusual for tackling the trails with your off-roader friends, this 2000 Cherokee is offered by J's Motors in the San Diego area for $18,995 -- a price that reflects the increasing demand for clean, well-kept used Cherokee models like this one.
