1994 jeep grand cherokee limited or not?

I'm thinking of buying a 1994 jeep grand Cherokee

It has 5.9L v8
leather
runs good
200k miles

NO sunroff
NO the cob web wheels it has Laredo rims

The side of the jeep said it is a limited. I'm wondering what the difference between limited and the Laredo is? Is this a true limited?

What problems dose this year have so I know what to look for?

First problem is you could only get a 5.9 in 1998

Po could have swapped wheels or what I did and swapped in the limited goodies. Id say go for it 93-95 IMO is slightly more reliable.

There are also slightly less electronics in a 93-95 ZJ IIRC

Reliability is relative

I think that assumption that 93-95 is more reliable than 96-98 is a bit unfounded. The pcm problems are for the most part with the 4.0. Other than that the 96-98 is much nicer. The 46rh is a better transmission than the 46re or 44re in my opinion but that's just because it's hydraulic. The 96-98 v8's have a stronger rear axle, redesigned interiors, redesigned 249 transfer case with a 90/10 split and lo lock. After having both I would pick the 96+. Keep in mid that a 95 is going to be about 19 years old. Not much lasts that long in a vehicle.

Didn't they get better brakes too? You wouldn't even know it because they still suck. I pulled my wife's rotors off of her 07 VW Rabbit to put on some power stops and I was amazed at how large they were for such a small car. They are just about as big as the entire rim!
Then I looked at mine and hung my head in shame.

I actually liked the 'pillow top' seats in my '94 slightly better than the ones in my 5.9L, from a looks standpoint.

The 5.9's are more comfy, however.
