looking to buy a 02 wj

I've got a 97 tj that just isn't enough power or comfort for me anymore (I have back issues) also I tow a small single ATV trailer behind it and that little 2.5 isn't enough. So I'm looking at an 02 grand Cherokee special edition 4.7l. I am having a hard time finding info about the special edition. Not sure which 4wd system they had transmission, etc. Anybody have some info for me that could help? Also possible common problems with these?

i have had a 2002 4.7 V8 since new...

Here are common issues:

If build date is after 2/02 then:

1) window regulator failure ..... $60 per door as a DIY ( medium complexity)
2) auto climate control blend door failure ..... $125 fix from Chrysler as a DIY
3) vacuum hoses crack in the EVAC system resulting in CEL .... $20 fix
4) radiator failure .... $200 fix as a DIY

That's been my experience. Wonderful ride for 12 years and 160,000 miles .
