1998 Jeep Cherokee 4 Dr Sport 4WDReview

Overall:

Good Vehicle, But Expensive To Maintain — It is a good vehicle for my purposes. Having no swaybar front or rear means it's not a race car. The offroad capabilities make up for the street worthiness. Having aussie lockers front and rear give it great traction offroad.

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

Pros: Offroad capability

Cons: Breaks alot

Cher-okee — reliable, 4wd vehicle, just goes along with 70 years of Jeep tradition, cheap to buy, bad gas mileage, great off road performance, body is rough, easy to modify, great 0-60, handles like crap, fun to drive at times, sometimes not so much

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 4 door 4wd station wagon

Cons: gas mileage

Can't Beat It. Easy To Customize, Fun To Drive. — Can't stop it, bullet proof, 4.0 HO, Rusty's lift on 31 Dick Cepeks. Arguably one of the toughest Jeeps of all time, and my personal most reliable ride I've ever owned. This rig is featured on Cardomain.com as well as one of Rusty's Rigs. An all season beast.

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

Pros: Unstoppable.

Cons: Gas or you like getting stuck.

Good For Work And Play — Not bad on gas but could be better. Handle good or an SUV. Good power for a straight 6. Hasn't rusted yet so good quality. Haven't had to replace anything other than the normal plugs and wires yet so quality parts.

Pros: Fun to drive and offroad in.

Cons: Gas milage isn't the best.

Fun — This is Alice, my explore-o-mobile. She has wonderful performance off-road and on. She does need maintenance from time to time, but considering her age she is running beautifully. As a purple box-shaped car she is not the most awesome looking thing in the world but she makes up for it when climbing over rocks and mud. Lots of fun to drive!

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

Pros: Off road ability

Cons: Poor mileage

It's My Baby. — New brakes are good for my jeep, as is the new engine. It pulls well with the torquey inline six. Wanders a little with the lift and shot bushings. Rattles a lot but is super fun to drive. Expensive to maintain, but that's just because everything went bad at once (it's 12 years old).

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

Pros: Off road performance

Cons: cost of ownership, gas mileage

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

Pros: thev way it looks now

Cons: not enough money to put into it

Get A Jeep, You Wont Regret It! — Although she gets 10mpg, this Jeep is my baby and I love the thing. The performance is sub-par at best. With only 190 hp from the factory, all I've added has been a CAI and a throttle body spacer. The build quality AND appearance are both very unique in the fact that I wanted to retain the badass nature of this Jeep while still keeping it trial worthy.

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

Pros: People always stare as I drive by and it never gets old.

Cons: It'll eat Hummer's alive on the trial.
