1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD
We got our 5.9 limited Grand Cherokee new. It was silver. Hood louvers, fully leather seats, and a chrome exhaust pipe. Unbelievably distinctive. It was our first Jeep, what a powerful, smooth beast. It was the fastest SUV ever made. When the motor starts, it rumbles. You don't just hear it idling, you feel it reverberating in your chest, it moves your soul. It carried us safely, reliably, and luxuriously for 6.5 years on city streets and country trails. We lost it this week, a very sad, bitter- sweet moment, it was our treasured beast. But traded it in for a new hemi- powered Grand Cherokee Limited which should arrive today.
It was so distictive, reliable, and powerful. The hood louvers, full leather interior, the beautiful music from the CD player, and the rumble of the 5.9 engine made this beast a pleasure to own.
Make the hood louvers an option for the new Grand Cherokee Limited beasts in the future.
