I bought an XJ this week(I think)

Well guys the wife found her a Jeep this week and we bought it. She was looking for a Cherokee. What we wound up with is a '89 "Jeep Cherokee Wagoneer Limited" 4x4. Is there such an animal as this? Like I said I know nothing about Jeep models besides the CJs.
It is about the same size as the Cherokee maybe just a hair bigger i'm not sure. It is in real good shape body and motor.(4.0) 106,000 miles on it and very clean. Everything works except the power door lock from the driver side will not lock or un lock the doors. It tries to but acts like it dont have enough power or "umph" to lock the doors. We gave $3,000 for it.
My question is, what do I have?
an XJ?
a Cherokee?
A Wagoneer or what?
I know you guys will know..........LOL Thanks...

It's an XJ (cherokee), the wagoneer is basicly just an option package on a cherokee, same size, I believe they usually have power everything , part and full time 4wd and dana 44 rear axles

the wagoneer used to be a seperate model when it (and the cherokee) were full size

doubtful that the 89 has a d44 rear...

it's basically a more upscale/luxury model of the XJ

if it runs good, and everything works. it'll be a good Jeep!

Thanks guys.
I guess I do have a XJ. Now I can post questions here instead of the Wagoneer Forum.(no ones there). Like I said I am not planning to lift it or go four-wheeling, just to town for groceries and stuff. The wife and I like it so far.
I am 6-2/275lbs and it has enough room to drive it comfortably. The Blazer S-10 didnt.
Thanks again guys................
