My Cherokee Challenger plan

Let my start off by saying, my first car was an '01 cherokee sport...I loved it. But when I turned 21, I traded her in for a new '09 JK.

So I bet you're wondering why I have the word "challenger" in the title? That's because I have a plan to trade in the wrangler to put towards a brand new 2013 dodge challenger R/T...but it would not be my DD.

So, here is where you XJ guys come in...I need to know the BEST model year the cherokee had...I mean, least issues..all I know was the late models had cracked head issues...what about the 90's cherokees? What are some specific things I should look for? Known issues, etc.

I want to buy an XJ and sell my Wrangler private party. Dealer offered 15k for it but I want more. Thanks guys.

I would stay away from a 97 if you are looking for perfect rig. Many mismatched parts between the pre97 and 97+. 99 is considered the best since it has the upgraded intake but that's all it has over a 98.
