I haven't bought a Grand Cherokee yet. I'm still shopping and gathering information. I hear that they are very prone to transmission problems. I've been advised that a 4.0 I6 will have plenty of power for most uses and the transmisssion will last longer due to the lower torque output than the V8. I welcome any experience or advice people have to offer.

Rear Track Bar in the shed
Other Tricks I won't tell to just anybody!

ProComp MX6 shocks
Alpine CD with Infinity+iPod connect
Just getting started!
If you're not living on the edge...
you're taking up too much space.
Not sure about which engine causes tranny failure first but all that I know is these vehicles are great! As with any Jeep, a bit of general maintenance now and then will make all of the difference. If you are really worried abot a tranny problem, get yourself an XJ with an AW4 and never worry again.
