93 was the first year that the Grand Cherokees (ZJ) were made. So, as with any new product line, there is always problems. Check the basics and have the dealer change them before buying, such as the plugs,wires,engine mounts. Other common problems may include the differentials.. ZJ have a tendency to break a few bearings after a while, so with 115K on it.. check for a grinding noise coming either from the rear or back. check the tranny and make sure gear changes are smooth. the Transfer case might have problems too. If you're buying from a private or a non-jeep dealership, take it to a Jeep dealership and have them perform a safety inspection ($65.00). They will check all the main components and tell you if something is wrong. A good investment, i think. oh you might want to run a carfax report (www.carfax.com) on it too, just to be on the safe side. Let me know if you have any other questions.
I've had my 93 for a while now.. and it has had it share of problems, so i would defintely recommend a safety inspection. If you have the money though.. go for a 98. Beautiful machines. And if you can find one, get a 98 5.9... I just got mine and all i can say....well, im speechless.
allright, im done.. i promise.
