what other vehicles do you have besides the commander?

It may be worth keeping as a spare vehicle/winter vehicle/trail rig. In reality you've had it since new and you know everything about it, vs selling it and buying a cherokee that isn't as nice. You won't get much for it with those miles, what like around 3k, which is certainly not enough to change your life.

XJ? Yes. WJ? No.

My Classic was pristine when I bought it. Perfect body and very clean interior. After 5 years of wheeling, it's a little rough on the outside lol, but still pretty damn clean on the inside. Only thing different about the Limited is the nicer interior, and you can keep that nice unless you intentionally abuse it.

Since you are in PA and I assume will wheel at Rausch Creek, you aren't going to keep a straight body for long, unless you stay on the green trails with the H2's

We have the Commander and a Dodge ram right now. I kept the Cherokee when I bought my 300C SRT-8 as a winter truck. They wanted to give me $1500 in trade then so I kept it for the winter. Probably going to sell it

I would make it into a weekend warrior and a back up just in case. When I picked up the sliders and seen it it was beautiful lol, it'd be a great jeep to build

I have a '98 limited that I DD/weekend warrior with. Yes, I've put a few dents on it and have even gotten some comments from my buddy's when we're trail riding in the summer and I have my windows up and AC going (Keeps the aux fan running, I haven't put that on a switch yet). I love the comfort.

I think letting it go is a mistake. There is something to be said about having one you drive until it just cant take any more. That's the beauty of a Jeep. You buy it, drive it and love it while it's nice and new. When it gets some age on it, it becomes the backup and you tell stories about it. When it gets really old, you mod it, wheel it and beat it and tell more stories about it. Then it can go become a donor to other jeep builds when it finally dies. And so goes the life cycle of a jeep....Still a better love story than Twilight.

I say that it depends on what your definition of trail rig is. Some guys beat the crap out of their vehicle, and some don't. If your definition of trail rig is a chopped up buggy you're gonaa bash against the rocks, don't do it. I don't beat the crap out of mine, but I have no problem taking my jeep off road and modifying it a bit. I get trail damage like everyone, but I slowly fix the body damage myself. You can do a lot to keep it looking nice and rust free with a hammer, dolly, a little bondo, and duplicolor. I say do a moderate build and off road the thing. It'd be a great vehicle.
