WJ = '99+ 4.0L I6 or 4.7L V8
ZJ = '93-98 4.0L I6, 5.2L (318) V8, 5.9L V8 ('98 only)
According to Carpoint (usually somewhat accurate) the 318 didn't appear until '97, but I could have sworn that they were around in 94 when my friend's dad bought his.
Are you joking about the resale value? I just sold my '99 Laredo V8, heated leather, quadra-drive, moonroof, infinity gold tape/cd, up-country, blah blah blah for $23k. Not two years ago I paid $33k plus tax, license (at the time, $750
) and payoff of my other vehicle. I wouldn't say that's high resale.
Personally I'd stay away from the 93/94's due to the new body style glitches (most of which SHOULD be worked out by now, but you never know)
My insurance with my '99 (me=24, single, 1 single vehicle meets solid object collision, 1 comp claim) was $1200 every 6 months. Oh, that was for a '91 Civic (high theft vehicle), '99 WJ, and '01 Impreza. Now that I've sold the Jeep and Honda it's down to $900ish every six. Bah.
