  1. hi please advise i have a 1997 jeep cherokee 2.5 petrol what battery do i need as I don’t have the correct one fitted thanks

    • As in the article above. A battery with dimensions of 278x175x190 mm should fit. Its capacity should be around 74 Ah. What battery is currently in your Cherokee?

  2. for the Jeep cherokee XJ 4L i 4X4 2000
    the dimensions of the battery you mention above are totally wrong. The limits of the battery tray are 265 X 190 X 175 (H)

    • Thank you for bringing it to our attention. We have corrected the information for the Jeep Cherokee with 4.0 L gasoline engines.
