My 1997 Cherokee has been the most fun to drive vehicle I have owned, it has 160,000 miles, runs perfectly and gets 20 MPG. I would recommend to anyone who isn't scared of a solid axle ride, and someone who doesn't care about useless interior gadgets to get a Cherokee, you won't be disappointed if you take care of it.
The solid axle 4x4 system and the 4.0L engine.
Bigger wheel well openings, and better rear door shocks.
