93-94 reliability?

I've been considering picking up a 5spd 93 or 94 grand cherokee. Any issues reliability-wise?

I'm getting 17mpg on the interstate and little less in town.

I'm the original owner. I've had some problems with ignition coils and headlight bulbs.

Its pretty hard to find a 5 speed ZJ.

There was one on the same used car lot when I was purchasing mine however. It was a 4x4 SE with the ugly checkered black and white seats.

I love my 94 zj. it has around 170,000 miles on it. I think the VC is going, replacing the radiator and fuel pump this weekend. Lots of love to keep her runnin' but I love her!
