I will never!!!

I will never talk crap about Jeeps ever again. I took my grand cherokee acroos the haulapai mountains today it took 5 hours to do 35 miles i was in 4 low the whole time.
Now i have 198,000 miles on this 5.2 liter motor and uniroyal all terrains. what was supposed to be a easy trip turned in to a nightmare. I was terrified on some of the inclines we were on the rain had screwed the road up so bad that i didnt think we would make it out. there was 200 to 300 foot dropoff on one side and 150 foot rock wall on the other and no way to turn around. So in stock form and high miles this little suv took a beating then took us home at 75 down the freeway. Thank you jeep for bringing us home

HAHA don't worry about your jeep i got 245,000 miles on my 5.2L zj and drove from san diego ca, all the way to canada. We drove for a winter trip and had no choice in bringing the beast. The winter storm of december had been dumping 45 inches of snow in one week while we drove through utah, wyoming, montana. It was an amazing trip and thank goodness the beast got us through the blizzards and winter storms, and back again. Gotta love a jeep

My cherokee does amazing except when my hitch gets me hung up. I of course have mud terrains. There are guys over on NAXJA that are wheeling theirs hard with 200-300k miles on them. I have seen a stock ZJ outflex an XJ on 33's and 7 inches of lift. those are amazing vehicles except for that tranny. The 5.2 is almost as bulletproof as the 4.0

Oh didn't realize there was a different one. My AW4 is Bombproof. I wish they would have put that in the ZJ after 93

They are a great Jeep, no matter how little respect they get. Glad to hear you found out a fraction of it's capability...now build it up and try something harder
