Why did Jeep stop making these?

1999 Jeep Cherokee Classic 4dr SUV 4WD
I bought my Jeep from the original owner in June of 2006, and I've been very happy since day 1. I bought it with 75k, and since then i've put 23K on it since. I've had to replace the orginal brakes on it (i'd suggest the ceramic brake pads), tires, and shocks, but that's been it. I also put a 2" lift kit on it, because stock 4x4 vehicles tower over it. Now it's about the height of a stock 4-runner. The best thing is that it's never stranded me, it's been the best car I've owned and I've owned and sold a lot cars.
Exterior styling, the ability of driving in adverse conditions. Gas mileage in the summer 20 MPG (winter gas drops to 17 MPG), Reliabilty. Torque of power of the 4.0l, stock speakers are sound pretty good.
The back seat will not seat a adult comfortably for any period of time, Exhaust manifold is a common problem (the previous owner had it replaced before i owned it), ground clearance hence the 2" lift, other than that it's great!
