When you have resealed the cowlseals and put rtv on the screws to the roofrails AND ITS STILL RAINING IN THE **** THING....
Time to talk to the guy who replaced the windscreen to se what he can do.

Dont have a sunroof that can leak so it must be the windscreen.

When you only payed a GRAND or less for the thing but within months it turns to a "Couple GRAND cherokee"

So true!!

LMFAO!!!

I paid $500 for mine in April, and now, 6 months later, I've got an "Almost three GRAND Cherokee"

And when Niners were new, that would've made them a "Forty GRAND Cherokee"???

I bought my ZJ for $1200 in April 2012. Including that, I'm now about $5,000 into it. I still have about $500-1000 to go before it's in saleable condition. Even then, I'll be lucky to get 2k for it. Of course, as she sits, I'd be lucky to get $500.

I'm in deeper than that. I bought mine for 4 and have put about 8 into it (over the almost 4 years I've had it).
