93-94 reliability?

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

My 94 runs like a champ with over 147K on it.

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!
