Haha, I have factory cruise control on mine and I have never really used it.... Maybe because I don't drive on any highways for a long extended time. I do test it out every couple months though and it still works!

That red one looks pretty cool, interesting front bumper on it! Whats wrong with the black Classic? Looks like it just needs tires, it is pretty funny that he says, "it will get you through an obstacles in NY" haha!

go with the 99, HP dana 30 FTMFW. (i think 00+ has the LP)

I bought mine (a 99) specifically because it has the HP D30 and had no ABS (which means guaranteed Chrysler 8.25)

Plus 99's get the better intake manifolds, no "prone to crack heads" altho some consider that a myth, and prob some other bonuses im forgetting lol. Oh and the header on pre-00's are cheaper to replace because they're old style

i really like the black 99... i dotn care about the tires and crap cause i would replace it. im actually really interested in it, sent the guy an email lol we will see.

the black one has had front end work tho... the JEEP letters are correct. but that is minor... hopefully.
