Yeah I agree, I love the classic look of the XJ. I went with the WJ because it is the last Grand Cherokee with solid axles front and rear and the Quadradrive 4x4 is super capable stock. Vari-lok limited slips front and rear. Vehicle is very comfortable and roomy, and is very inexpensive to purchase. I agree about wanting to personalize it to make it unique to you. I plan on doing so myself once funds allow. Check the Stickies in the WJ forum for threads on modifications.
