Just wanted to say hi and say thanks already to the people of this forum. It's already saved me some money and taught me a lot about the 1996 Grand Cherokee Laredo I just bought from my brother. I just bought it for $1200 about 10 days ago & already took her on a trip. Put a little over 1300 miles on her. I did have to do some work to her before the trip, and that's when I found this forum. I had to do upper & lower ball joints on the front drivers side, plus a new caliber, new rotors & pads in the rear, & then your basic oil change, grease everything, ect... This forum definitely helped me with the ball joints (hopefully I'll never have to do those again). The Jeep ran great all the way there and back until we stopped about 6 miles from home. I stopped at a store for my wife and when I went to start her up, the key lock cylinder broke. So the forum helped me fix that today. Anyways sorry for the long story. Just really wanted to thank everyone for the posts that helped me. I'm now the proud owner of a 96 Grand Cherokee Laredo that runs and drives great!!!

Lol...my oldest is 17. She wants me to buy her a car, but she couldn't take care of the phone I bought her. So if she wants a car she's gonna have to work and save up for it. I guarantee she'll take care of it if she had to work and pay for it...lol

Welcome aboard !

I like the way you're handling the daughter issue. You wont be sorry in the long run and when she's about 30, she'll thank you for it....just as my son did, 10 years after I let him get his first truck repo'd. Ten years later he said he was glad I didnt bail him out and that he'll never bite off more than he can chew again.

BTW, he didnt speak to me for a year...haha !
