2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
I bought my 2002 grand Cherokee 4.7 v-8 model at then end of 2008, as an upgrade from my 2x4 94 Cherokee. I have to say this thing is amazing, I take it off road almost every weekend, this thing drives as good off road as it does on road. Absolutly no problems with it. Only minor, routine repairs, brakes, one tie rod end and alignment, one o2 sensor. Perfect balance of size, good amount of cargo/passenger space, but not too big that its awkward driving.
Selec-trac part time 4x4, can select 2 or 4 wheel drive. ground clearance, size, sound system. Gas mileage is pretty good, average about 16, but I do a fair mix of city and highway, have gotten 22 before.
replace factory headlights which haze, with aftermarket ones.
