    My Beauitful Jeep — Obviously my Jeep isn't a race car but it goes when I push the gas to the floor. Brakes work great. Handing, well it lifted with no sway bars. My Jeep needs constant repairs since I take it wheeling and since it's old with high milage. Things rattles like crazy but I just turn up the stereo and all the noices disapear. The exterior looks amazing with the winch and bumper, the roof rack, the lift, tires and wheels and rock rails make it look sick. The inerior is spot less and stock except for to huge subs in the back. Duh my car is fun to drive. love my Jeep it's my baby.

    Pros: Fun. Gets tons of looks and compliments.

    Cons: Cost me and my parents tons of money to build and keep running.

    96 Jeep Xj — It accelerates hard and stops even faster. It has a few rattles just due to age. It looks clean and almost new. It is averaging about 23 mpg and up to 30 on the highway. It is a blast to drive, and a great vehicle.

    Pros: everything

    Cons: to low, needs a lift

    There's Only One. — Jeep built the perfect vehicle in the Cherokee. Able to climb mountains, ford rivers & blast through snow banks, yet cruise the highway comfortably and take exit ramps at 60 MPH without fear of tipping over. Lots of creature comforts for the money and decent gas mileage to boot. This vehicle is a real work horse too. But the most impressive thing is that after 225,000 miles, it still starts on the first try. By the way, still has the original clutch too.

    Pros: Best vehicle ever made.

    Cons: They stopped making them

    96 Cherokee Country — 4.0 litre 6 gets up and goes! We purchased it well used, but very well looked after, other than running hot, and a couple of electrical gremlins, it is a very solid vehicle and the legendary 4X4 capabilities of Jeep shine through. It's just too shiny and scratch free to take serious off roading, (my wife would kill me)

    Pros: ...it won't quit!!!

    Cons: It likes the gas, and chrysler gouges you for parts big time!

    96 Jeep Cherokee Classic 2wd — Lots of power from the 4.0L HO. Brakes are pretty good. Maybe a little touchy. For a tall SUV, it handles nice. Tight turning circle for a truck. Haven't needed any major repairs yet. Doesn't have any obtrusive squeaks or rattles. Gas mileage ain't great, but it's an SUV. Stock AM/FM stereo has a surprising amount of volume and sound quality. l Love driving it.

    Pros: Off-road ability, Power, Solid build

    Cons: I don't like the buzzer when you start the car.  That's about it.

    Great All Around Car — Tough as nails, someone hit a brick wall with me in at low speeds, so we strapped the bumper to a tree, put it in 4wd and hit reverse and pulled it out. The 6cyl. was very torquey. Pulled a landscaping trailer very well. Did very nice burn outs thanks to the eaton rear end. Very good suv, took its beating and always asked for more.

    Pros: Four wheel drive meant four wheel drive not 3 or whatever spins the easiest

    Cons: Not the greatest on gas, but worth it

    Cherokee: Jeeps Red-headed Stepchild. — Jeep has always made some solid off-road vehicles. Probably some of the best. The Cherokee, while it may not be the most popular, is still one of the better vehicles that Jeep made. The 4.0 HO straight six puts out excellent torque and power and can pull the Cherokee through just about anything. Build quality can be questionable when considering how vulnerable the floors are to rust. Cherokees are notorious for rotted floors and the unibody construction does not help to make this an easy fix. If you pick up a Cherokee with solid floors, however, expect to find that it's one of the most reliable vehicles made. The 4.0 engine will turn 300,000 miles if it's taken care of properly and will outlast the rest of the vehicle. Gas mileage ranges. With 30 inch MTRs and a 5 speed transmission, I manage to get about 23/24 mpg.

    Pros: Reliable, strong vehicle.

    Cons: Floors intensely vulnerable to rust.

    1996 Green Jeep Cherokee 4.0 Liter High Output 6 Cyl. — I like it a lot. Have had a couple problems with it but I will always have a place in my heart for Jeeps. The performance is great, I have a Flowmaster muffler on it and I just changed the sparks, the points, and the air filter. Doesn't cost much to own especially since it is a manual transmission and doesn't burn that much fuel. Really fun to drive. I recommend it!!!

    Pros: Fun to drive sounds and funs great

    Cons: could look better want a better set of wheels (alloys) I have steel rims on now
