Help me choose '99 Cherokee Sport or 02 Cherokee Laredo 4.7

I've been looking at getting an affordable used Jeep for 7k or less and paying cash to use as a daily driver instead of financing a newer Jeep. I was looking at getting a Jeep Cherokee Sport with the 4.0 so I could use it to tow a small trailer and it would have 4wd for trips up north to go snowboarding.

Anyways, here is what I found.

1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4wd, 4.0 inline 6, 48k miles, cloth interior, all power options, no rust on body or frame, mint condition for $5200

2002 Jeep Cherokee Laredo 4wd, 4.7L V-8, 60k miles, cloth interior, all power options, a little bit of surface rust underneath for $7500

I've seen the 4.0's go for 150k+ miles but I don't know much about the 4.7 V-8. I also don't know much about the quadratrack 4wd on the 2002.

Which would you get?

Is the 99 a cherokee (xj) or grand cherokee (wj)? The 2002 is obviously a wj.

If I was looking at the 2, I'd get the 4.7 wj over a 4.0 wj (I have one now, and would love the extra power for towing).

However, if the 99 is an XJ (regular cherokee...not grand), I'd get that in a heartbeat.

agreed. if the 99 is a jeep cherokee not a jeep grand cherokee. Get that. especially with 48K and mint condition you can keep that jeep forever.

If you don't want to buy the Cherokee (not the Grand) then I do! Care to share where it is?
