I'm looking to buy a Jeep Cherokee but don't know which year or model to buy. Looking to spend no more than $6,000.
I want a 4 door with a 4wd. I've read a little about straight Cherokees being better than Grand with the off-roading.
We off road on the weekends - basically going out to the Mojave and riding on old dirt paths, going through washes, climbing hills etc. No rock climbing
We've been using hubby's GMC Canyon but got stuck in the sand once and the clearance isn't as high as I would like so a lifted Cherokee would be preferred.
I would also be using the car for my everyday vehicle as well. So it would be great if it was good for both. I don't need the smoothest ride - I'll trade that for off-road capability
Thanks for any input.
