All Euro models are coming from that factory. You can read your VIN to find out if its a WJ or WG.

Yep I knew all that is correct except WJ is still the model description for all our Grand Cherokees. WG stands for the family series identifying export cars.All catalogues specify our model as a WJ in Greece and Portugal that I lived.

Found out that my Jeep is pretty perfect for its age, went looking at a 04HO i been drooling at.

List of imperfections and faults:

Crack in cluster.
Power folding mirrors broken.
Broken drivers door, door check.
Rust under + rocker guards.
Paint faults.
Idle issues.
Wrong sparkplugs used?
Needs Throttle body clean.
Hood support broken.
Spring and shocks all rusted.
Handbrake handle chew by dog.
IDK what transfer case fluid used?
Suspicious service history?
VIN says 2wd, rebuidt to QD?
Oil leak engine compartment.
Exhaust all rusted.

So as you all understand its a nono.
Hunt continues......

Start thinking i Will not find a new GC almost same perfect as the one i have.

Posted on "What did you do..." thread but that Jeep looks a little sketch for sure. I would move on. I thought that I saw rust on the one picture.

Thats a pretty good eye you got there.

The seller was quite embaresed when i pointed out all the faults for him. He stated its not perfect cause its a 8 year old Jeep. I looked at mine and told him thats a 12 year old one, popped the hood and showed him how smooth the engine are supouse to Idle and how clean an engine compartment can be. Gave him a JF card and took off so he could hear how a 3" Kolak exhaust sounds. Ha ha ha! 

Hahaha thanks, When I saw that tail pipe and the hitch with some rust on them. I knew that there were going to be some issues.

Hahaha. Way to show him up! it is all about how much care you put into your car to maintain it etc.

It just make me realize how much TLC my Jeep gets and that it Will be hard finding a HO in the same condition, Even if its 4 years newer. I hate the WK, and cant afford a WK2 with Norwegian prices, so thats out of the picture. Been thinking about Dodge Durango or RAM pickup. Yes i know, let the flameing begin.....

Good thing happened today, got a call from another insurence company, they offered me full coverage and rental vehicle, to the same price as my half coverage without rental vehicle, great deal, accepted it offcourse. Never know where the Moose are crossing the road. Ha ha!

I really do put so much TLC into my Jeep as well. In turn I think that she will repay me in some way, someday. I dislike the WK except for the fact that it did have a hemi in it! I think you may have some trouble finding what you are looking for, because 1, its a more rare vehicle, and not everyone takes care of there stuff. Best of luck, though, I know you will keep us all very well informed!

That definitely can't hurt! Good to hear!

Yes i know, thanks, its a keeper. I Think i Will continue to baby it, until i can find a perfect low milage sample of an 04HO. My Jeep is paid off and doesnt Cost me much to have. I have also been looking at Wrangler JK, but they seems to only come with the 2.8 CRD (177hp/409nM) around here, i like the look of it, but i really want another V8.

Do you think they'll import the Pentastar version of the JK? It's got more power than your V8, though I don't think it's got as much torque, and the JK weighs a lot more than your WJ does. Still, it's gotten pretty good reviews and manages better mileage than the older design of the 4.7 V8. Hopefully they'll make them available to you over there.

I have been posting a thread over in the JK section, they all drool over the 2.8CRD engine and i Think its a better option than the 3.8 V6 engine.

The hunting for a nice 04 Overland WJ or a 09/10 JK Rubi Will continue. I may not sell my Jeep, but keep it and buy another one, atleast thats my latest thoughts, to have 2 jeeps would be perfect.

2012 is out of the picture for me, cause the price, it Will have to be an 09/10. Also i can only seem to find them with 2.8CRD, most commom around here, havent seen a single V6 or a Pentastar yet.
