'96 Grand Cherokee Laredo

I just purchased, and I'm interested in the expert opinions on what to watch for (preventative maintenance), and any accessories that would make this vehicle more enjoyable.

Get a Garmin Streetpilot III GPS ($800 from GPSNOW.com - best price in town). It's a lot of fun and realy useful. You will never again be afraid to explore that old logging road for fear of getting lost, nor will you hesitate to get off the main thoroughfare and take the back roads to avoid that huge traffic jam. It even talks to you to give you audible directions.

Use a piece of screen (like from a window screen) to cover the A/C drip line outlet on your Jeep. This will prevent insects (like wasp and yellow jackets) from clogging the drain. The screen can be secured with a garbage bag twisty or a hose clamp. To find the drain just follow the water drips after running the A/C while parked.

If it doesn't have fog lights, put a set in... it's an easy job, only takes a couple of hours, if that, after you collect all the needed parts.

I thought that with your name you'd have an International Scout or Scout II or something, but I don't see it mentioned in your profile. My brother restored a Scout II a while back. It's a great 4X4. He's had a couple of them over the years. I believe that there was a group referred to as The Binder Bunch, and they were all Int'l. The name, "ihbinder" just seemed to fit. Cheers.

Back on topic. Finding the factory rubber cup holder insert made my ZJ more enjoyable.
