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.

400 special edition 5spd laredos were made in 1994.

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?
