Great Bang For The Buck. — My second attempt at a grand cherokee. This time I wanted to to it right with a V8. Although the V8 sound is inspiring, the performance is not. Coming from GM V8s (in my firebird), I think I expected too much from the Dodge engine. My previous I6 Jeep (see other review) was much more reliable and could accelerate just as good as the V8 and get 3-5 MPG more per tank. I am not impressed with Dodge's V8s. Although where I did notice the V8 power was going up hill and crusing at 70+ MPH, both my previous I6 tended to run out of breath. The build quality on this Jeep is just the same as my '93 except this time I have black paint so it is not flaking!! The only problems I have had with this car (now at 165k miles) is the dumb dodge engine. I've been fighting a coolant leak that I would never of had to deal with if I had the tried and true AMC designed I6 . Other than that for a 12 year old car, the leather has no tears and the interior is in awesome shape. For the $3500 I paid for it, it is a steal! As for off-road performance, All I have is a 2" spacer lift and 31" tires. I still suffer from the lack of skid plates and no-center diff (the latter not corrected until '95). If you have a good spotter, like I did in Moab, and a few spare tires to throw into the golden crack, this Jeep did survive Golden Spike, a 4+ (difficult) rated trail. I tend to keep this Jeep as long as I can and then replace it with a new JK wrangler!

Pros

Very fun to go off roading with! Turns on a dime.

Cons

Very poor gas mileage

It Does What I Need — I bought this as a winter car for $2000 (in 2008). It's 4WD is great, I can get around in any conditions while my other car can barely stay on the road in bad conditions. The interior is still in great condition, the previous owner installed a new CD player and it's wired up for a sub woofer. I took it to Jensen (after buying it) to have them check it out. They said if I fixed everything that's wrong it'd be $3500, which didn't include the transmission work that probably needs to be done (it rolls away in park, you have to put the e-brake all the way up or it will crawl away while you're gone).

Pros

Power, nice meats, throaty sound.

Cons

Again, gas mileage sucks, but since I'm not commuting in it, who cares?

Grocery Getter No More — Recently did an exhaust, suspension, wheel and tire upgrade to the original family rig we had. Love it even more now. It's a great ride, and does very well off road, even with the smallish suspension upgrade.
