They're unibodies, in other words they share nothing.

x2, the only thing they share is the fact they are both unibodies. At least, I think XJs are unibodies Either way, nothing else is shared.

i was just wondering if the sport had a frame under it.i had always diven a company truck.i wanted something i could pull a trailer to the dump,and haul my hunting gear around in .was going to look at small trucks,but i wanted some thing to put my grand daughter in the back.because i was buying something 12 years old,i didnt know if the Cherokee was built a little better frame wise,as i will probably have this for a while if it dosent break the bank to own. has 144,000 on .

Neither has a frame per-se...the XJ is fairly light duty, but you have to remember that it has the same structure as the Comanche pickup truck, so it is technically a 1/2 ton truck with a top on it. The WJ is similar in that it is built like a truck, but was never built as a truck, if that makes sense.

It's true, you never forget your first Jeep. - 1999 Cherokee - 188,000 miles. DOA.

The Albatross - 2004 WJ Laredo 4.7, clackety lash adjusters, 3 gallons of antifreeze on the floorboard, 109,000 mile daily driver.

If you want "just ain't gonna die reliability" the XJ's a good bet. Take care of her and she'll drive you through the apocalypse.

As long as you don't get too excessive with the weight, it will tow and haul plenty.
