Mine is the only one Ive ever seen locally...ever, People are always asking my I put on woodgrain, so clearly these got in under the radar and the mainstream.
So Im wondering...how rare are they and about how many were produced?
From what Ive read, it was basically a Grand Cherokee with Special plush leather seats, all the wood paneling inside, factory fog lights, all power options, woodgrain exterior with simulated metal strips around the wood, 5.2 V8 automatic, 4X4 only, Laredo 5 spokes...
And some things Ive read or been told that I cant prove or find any evidence of.
Sits a hair higher than other 93 ZJ's?
roof rack sliders were not installed at the factory.
And one little oddball thing...On the woodgrain strip that runs around the RF wheel well has a Chrysler Emblem on it, but the strip on the drivers side does not, all Grand Wags were like that.
Ive confirmed that the factory gauge is correct, using a mechanical gauge...it hits 70psi on cold startup. HOT, and in gear, with old oil in it..It sits around 50ish. My 98 Ram with the 360 was the same way, but it got down to 40ish hot and in gear.
I use 10W40 with a quart of lucas stabilizer at every change, the previous owner also used lucas. No leaks, no smoke, no odd noises...226,153 miles on it as of this morning.
The other differences:
1) steering wheel/airbag same color as interior (instead of black)
2 ) no deep window tint
3) pillowtop/biscuit top leather seats
4) Limited snowflake wheels, that I think were silver (instead of limiteds gold) But I have seen them with the Laredo 5 spokes. My guess is that they ran low on those special snowflake wheels, and used Laredos instead on a decent percentage of the production.
