Took my Cherokee to the junkyard today. Bought it new in 1996. It's been in all environments, the coast, mountains, deserts and cities and performed like a champ. Replaced a water pump, brakes, tires and radio. The only thing that didn't work was the hydraulics on the rear hatch. Rescued stranded motorists, carried Christmas trees and was given to my son as his first car, after it had over 209K miles racked up on it. My inexperienced son ran into a F250 Ford dualie and tore the rear axle right off that truck. The Jeep suffered terrible front end damage. My son didn't have a scratch. I should be so lucky, as to go out as big a hero as that Jeep!

I purchased my Cherokee back in 2006 with 180k miles on it, and drove it everyday for a couple of years.
Now it sees limited use (towing, going off road, and hauling stuff around... hard miles) with just under 220k miles.
Burns no oil, always starts, and when something does go wrong, I've always been able to fix it myself.
While it was my daily driver, I added a 2 inch lift, and a year later got a 3.5" lift and added larger tires.
It's quicker accelerating than a Hummer H3, as tested by some guy and myself (on a closed course) a while back.

I own a two door 1996 jeep cherokee sport (I know it shows 4dr 5 speed) but this thing is AMAZING! My cherokee is so much fun to drive and even though it has street tires and no lift at the moment, it can go straight through mud. I am currently building it up right now. I have a k&n cold air intake in it, brand new tune up kit, and a redone exhaust system. It's rugid, reliable, and can take a beating. I love my Jeep.
