My 1996 jeep has been great overall. I have had to replace the water pump, the oil pump, the alternator, the radiator, and the brakes/tires/shocks. In addition, I had to replace the catalytic converter. Otherwise the jeep is rock solid other than minor issues. It is great in the rain and snow.
Stable in the rain and snow.
I would rec a 1996 jeep to anyone who wants cheap reliable transport. Parts are cheap and available. The only drawback is the MPG. 15 city.20 hwy
