Buying Jeep. Help

Hello,

I just bought an 01 grand cherokee 4.7 quadra track 2. 130k miles. I really wanted a select track only because it what I've always had and never had issues with it. But I was also extreme off roading.

This ones job will be to pull a small trailer for work (I am a farrier or "horseshoer") so from barn to barn. and act as reliable transportation in New England winters.

Please tell me I'm making the right choice.

If it works for you then you made the right choice. Keep the tow within recommended limits. Since you have already bought the cherokee, then buying advice is useless at this point.

I don't know much about the 4.7's but the 4.0 will go forever (tractor engine). I know one person with a 00' and one with an 01' Grand Cherokee 4.0 and they are pushing 200k miles with little issues. One had to get their rear differential rebuilt and that's it. 4WD is incredible on those things as well.

From my understanding that is the most solid combo in a WJ, but I think that side can be biased on the individual. Also I remember reading in full time 4x4 with the select trac it was only about .5-1mpg's worse, so I don't think the Quadratrac is too bad in that area either.
