Need vehicle opinions - Jeep Grand Cherokee

So I'm thinking about breaking my streak of buying minivans at 5, and am considering a small SUV. I like the style of the 99-02 years, and they're in my price range.

Anyone have experiences with these? There seems to be a lot of them out there. I'm leaning towards one with the IL 6 cyl since it probably does better on gas and the V8 is really crammed in there and likely a bitch to work on.

Thoughts?

Well, seeing that I am not currently employed, the answer would be no. But that shit ain't happening again. I'll put my tools and basic things in it but I'm not doing what I did at my previous job.

Cool. Seems like it would wear on the suspension.

Nah, nothing I hauled around was all that heavy. A lot of wear and tear on the interior though, which I wasn't all that concerned with my van. The most annoying thing was having to spend 45 minutes cleaning all the shit out if I needed it for personal use.

So, tell us more. We know itís got the 4.0 HO, how about the transmission? Transfer case (part time/full time)? Axles, gear ratio? You can get away with not knowing these things as a Jeep nOOb but youíve got your homework assignment.

Well done, that should be a very solid vehicle. Glad my odd tip helped, it's the little things that sometimes help you find a jem.

Bet you're glad the hunt is over, that by itself can get exhausting.

4 low feels like it will climb a tree.

Selec-trac has a 2wd drive option. The full time 4wd option is nice on those days that it's slick in spots. You just put it in full time and forget it. You don't have to keep shifting in and out of 4wd like a part time system.

I had it in my XJ and it's still my favorite system from any of the others I've had.
