better version of a 1999 cherokee.

I'm in the market to purchase another 4x4. I had a Cherokee before and really liked it .
My last was a 2001 Wrangler TJ -super nice - too nice to damage.
However- all Cherokees around me are HIGH mileage or beat.
I've been looking for a 97-99 Cherokee auto -stock or mildly built with around 150,000 miles.
The only reasonable ones are in the $ 5 to 6000. price range.
So - is there a newer version that is as easy and cheap to build.
Or do I just bite the bullet and spend the money?

The Jeep WJ's (1999-2004) seem a bit cheaper, and can be found with Quadra-Drive. Trouble is no matter what you do, you are going to find them pretty expensive to get one in good condition that hasn't been beat to crap and/or doesn't have extremely high mileage. I got my 98 ZJ Laredo SE for $3400 at the end of December 2018. Looks great inside and out and had 150,051 miles on it when I bought it, has the 4L I6, Selec-Trac 4WD and limited slip rear axle...previous owner was a cleaning business and they used it for a sales vehicle I assume as its pretty loaded for being a "Laredo" it has leather heated seats, and the original cargo area cover and cargo net still in it as well, and the upgraded Infinity stereo system....only thing it don't have thank god is the sunroof, the rear hatch already leaks don't need a leaking sunroof.
