Fun Car To Drive — Best Build Car I have been in and drove. First car I have had and kept for three years got the car going in to the junkyard and it still runs. The Jeep that won't die.

Pros: Great four wheel drive and strong runner.

Cons: The electrical could use a little work.

Cheap, Fuel Effective, Classic — for a megar sum of $1300 i purchased my 89 Cherokee and with minimal upkeep it sits at 230,000mi with acceptable fuel economy, good towing capacity, and lots of capability

Pros: price, true small truck utility, decent gas milage, reliability, steel bumpers, classic design, low cost parts

Cons: languid acceleration, no cruise control, difficult to do work on, leaf spring rear axle, and it wouldnt be a jeep if something didnt leak (if ever so slowly)

Great "go Anywhere" Vehicle! — 4.0L inline 6 cylinder has great torque, good power, and solid reliability. New Process 241 transfer case offers part time and full time 4wd capabilities along with a decent stock low range ratio. Seats 4 adults easily, 5 is a bit cramped, but not impossible.

Pros: Fantastic stock off road capabilities and proven reliable drivetrain.

Cons: Stock cooling system is lacking, quickly fixed with 3 row radiator upgrade. Moderate gas mileage, not the worst, but most certainly not the best. 13-15 mpg city / 18-20 mpg highway

Wicked Awsome! On And Off The Trails — I dislike that i traded it in. My bad! Tough vehicle with lots of personality. Easy to fix, cheap parts, easy to find used parts. Lots of fun on the trails, not so much in the mud although was still fun.

Pros: everything...i love jeep!

Cons: nothing! I love jeep
