Just bought my first one
My 79 Toyota pickup is getting a bit long in tooth so I just bought a used 1998 Grand Cherokee.
Two wheel drive and seems to meet all my requirements.(not the least of which ,it fits in my undersize garage.).I think of it as a poor mans Lincoln Navigator. I am glad to have found this forum, If anyone can clue me in on what I should know about this car, let me know. It seems really nice, The big six is as smooth and powerful as any car I have driven and the car looks great. Has 48000 miles on it, wondering what the first thing to break will be. I'm keeping the old Totota for a while, it's been too good a vehicle to send to the crusher. 168000 miles and it still passes Calif. smog test with no new parts. Still running strong but I hesitate to take a 22 year old vehicle on any meaningful (long) trips. That's what the new Jeep will be for.
Thanks for putting up with my rambling but jeez, It's been 22 years since I bought my last car and I'm kinda jazzed about it.
