Private Jeep mechanic here. This is my personal daily driver of choice, and what I recommend to anyone looking for a family or adventure friendly rig. 1999-2004Grand Cherokee. Stay away from the v8 and get one with the bulletproof 4.0l (the greatest engine ever made). Tough rigs, tons of room, ride great, parts are

I work on jeeps all day long at a jeep shop in nova Scotia. You are lucky the frame is good, and I’ve rebuilt way worse floors and body panels on similar vintage fsjs and cjs.

Required YouTube Tribute to car that negates all other posts in this thread

Heh, that brings back memories. My father was RCMP plain-clothes in the 90's, and drove a series of unmarked Crown Vics after his cherished Caprice was taken. First I got into the first one and the police interceptor stickers got peeled off and attached to my K-car Coupe. Then my brother did the same when he came of Read more
