About Us

Cherokee Central was founded in 2020 to service the Australian Jeep community that loves their niche non-Wrangler SUV models, such as the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee, but find it hard to navigate options to buy accessories locally.

With focus on a great online experience, we look forward to bringing you the best products from around the world, delivered to your door with minimal shipping fuss.

We love supporting the communities that Jeep and 4x4 Clubs provide and are proud members of the Sydney Jeep Club since 2015.

What do we drive?

Currently we have a post-update XJ Cherokee that has been in the family since 2009 and is built as a weekend warrior. We are also excited to add a Grand Cherokee L to the stable as a tourer/overland build when available in 2022, in 4xe drivetrain if available locally.
