I say do it!! I have been looking at older cherokees and grand cherokees, I have always liked the regular cherokees, but the grand cherokees can be turned in to a bad @ss trail rig as well.

Thoes 5.9L are sought after. If its not in too bad of shape I would clean it up and start adding power. I wouldn't take it out and beat it too crap. but heck it would be nice to have that power on the trail.

Id rock it. Well I'd sell my truck and just use the Jeep for a dual purpose rig. "Trucks" just built one up. I'm sure you can catch a re run of it.

Jeeps are kicka$$!!!! Get it man! My cherokee has 210,000 miles on it, my TJ went anywhere, I beat the hell out of it and only had to replace a couple radiators. Suspension is MUCH much better than our ranger suspension.
