Default My new ride!

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It's got the V8, but oh well...IT RUNS! With a few minor (and cheap!) fixes, it will be road-trip ready. WOO HOOO!

The only thing I'm not liking is the rims. I mean, they're cool, but holy crap the car is high. I can barely get in, and Logan can barely get in. I'm considering selling/trading them.

I like the rims.

Mine has 33" tires with a 3.5" lift.

I think these are 31". At the very least I need running boards lol.

The body's a bit rough, but that means I won't feel bad doing stuff to it. I was just getting into my Caliber when I had to give it up, and really, there's nothing you can do to an Intrigue without making it look stupid.

The lights were all blacked out, I had to remove the paint from the headlights because it's illegal. But I'm leaving the rest blacked out because I love it. I'm going to try to Torchwood-ify this thing.

And he needs a name. I never named any of my other cars (well, my Caliber was "Sexy" since I rebranded it as a TARDIS), but this one just screams "Name me!" lol

I'm in love!! I've always wanted a Jeep Cherokee. It looks great for a '96 too! Love the all black!

I LOVE IT!!!


Especially that it's totally blacked out. I'm with you on the headlights, but, I'd remove it because of the increased night visibility.

Oh how I miss my Jeeps. I have an Explorer now and while it was a great deal (free) low miles and has been immaculately maintained, I still get all covetous when I see Jeeps.

Congrats!

I've been toying with the idea of going to a Jeep. Would need/like one that tows at least 5k (we have a camper) and has a 6 instead of 8 if at all possible. I really haven't done my homework to see what's what with them yet....but I'm going to!

Im not a fan of blacked out lights on any vehicle, hard to see brake lights during the day. Then again I hate LED brake lights as they are too bright at night.

From what I have read the towing cap for an XJ is 5K. A ZJ should be about the same unless there is a towing package Im not aware of. With my bigger tires and stock gearing, towing sucks.

The XJ and ZJ I would classify as light duty. My old XJ and ZJ where both dogs towing stock, the ZJ an even bigger dog towing with the bigger tires. Both Js had the 4.0,and would have had lower gearing then the V8 counterpart.
