Love It! I Will Go Anywhere Do Anything! — I bought this jeep five years ago for about five hundred bucks. It had over 200000 miles on it when i got it and it still runs like a charm. It is getting way old though, so i am hoping for a couple more months with her.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It will last forever!

Cons: It doesn't have the best gas millage.

89' Jeep Xj Larado — I remember being 4 years old at the dealership buying this truck with my mom. My parents bought it as something to tow our boat around with. In winters, it would sport a snow plow and take care of our driveway. Outside of that it sat on our property and I used it for different things.

Pros: Origional truck. Fun.

Cons: Only had 2 wheel drive.

Sweet! — Well its been gone for a while now, and i miss it. In it's 20 years of life, it has never gotten stuck, and has pulled out many stuck cars and trucks and even pulled out a tow truck out of a sand pit once. it didn't get excellent gas mileage, but wasn't horrible. about 15-21. it looked ok and was really fun to drive!

Pros: never gets stuck, solid, fun to drive

Cons: overheating !! put a radiator from a 93 in it. bad design that year

89 Jeep Cherokee — An awesome SUV. It performed great and handled fantastically. It didn't get too great of gas mileage but the overall performance was great. It had a ton of power especially when the transmission was in power mode (AT). The Jeep handled pretty well and was a pleasure to drive. The 4 wheel drive was indestructible. It was lots of fun off-roading in.

Pros: 4 wheel drive, great look, holds up to everything

Cons: Gas mileage

Heep — it handles well, for being a 4x4, has a good turning radius and enough power to get you where u need to go, while doing burnouts. it has a fairly strong unibody, hard to bend. they are cheap to buy, usually under 2000. and its a real fun vehicle off the road

Pros: good solid vehicle

Cons: gas guzler

I Love My Jeep - My First Girlfriend — I got it as a freebee.... had to replace half the components of the engine, still had trouble with it from time to time. But it was my baby. Grill guard with chrome cover lights, custom light bar on top, diamond plate trim, looked AMAZING!

Pros: It was amazing

Cons: It had a tendency to break down a little too often, but it was expected, I got it for free... over 300k miles!
