Best Inheritance Ever! — When I was 7, my grandpa got the 401 cubic inch four barrel version in the Sun Orange option. After he passed away, grandma gave it to me. Well cared for and with only 63,000 miles on it, this is a rare classic beauty. Almost all of the 63,000 miles were off road, though you'd never know looking at it or driving it. At the ripe old age of thirty, she handles interstate speeds, goes four-wheelin, starts up and idles beautifully, shifts flawlessly, burns no oil, and still has a nice glossy shine on the original sun orange paint job. I recently drove it from New Mexico to Louisiana nonstop, and other than a replacement of the original alternator, it drove just like it was new. I will be restoring the well worn interior as close to original as possible, but the engine and exterior need virtually no work at all.

Owner for 30 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:1,000

Pros: Durability and ruggedness unlike anything you can buy new today.  A lot of power and space.  Great 360 visibility.  Good workhorse for towing.  

Cons: Gas guzzler, especially in stop/start traffic.

Cherokee was much better at keeping it value and can carry people around where the truck is limited, also 4 wheel drive is always important when needed.
