5-Speed Manual

Does anyone know how many Grand Cherokee's were made with the five speed manual? Are the rare? I know they only made them in 93

there was a post on this a few days ago, i forgot the exact number but it was very low .5% of all ZJs made i believe, 1500-5500 (very least/very most) out of 1,000,000+ made but yes they are rare, sure a good bit of those have been scrapped so if you have one its a keeper

I only know of 3 on this forum, Squazz, CTeunch, and some other guy. Only seen 1 in real life, and it was an educated guess. I saw it take off up a hill and could hear the shifts. And I thought it was only like 1200 made.

You can use your stock wheels but the tires might rub on the control arms.

My son has a 93 ZJ Laredo with a 5 speed and a 4.0 that was built in July 92. It had to be one of the first ZJ's built. Is it rare?
