terrawombat Posted December 9, 2010 Share Posted December 9, 2010 I've never been a big fan of the ZJ body style so I've declined the half dozen or so offers I've had from friends/family getting rid of theirs and often skipped over the many deals on CL that I've seen. However, pending the cash for title deal that should transpire this afternoon, I will be the owner of a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9L Limited. I figured, if I'm going to get one, might as well go big :D Truthfully, I had been looking at '97-'98 black on black Limited's since my friends father used to own one and I always liked the color combo with the gold rims. I stumbled upon the 5.9L by accident and couldn't really bring myself to justify spending more than my usual $500 on it, but it being bonus season and my inheritance of a portion of my late grandfather's estate, I figured it was time to actually get a vehicle of luxury, even if it is 12 years old, going on 13. I don't know what my plans for it are yet, but I'm excited. I actually remember when I was in 8th grade and this thing came out. That was about the same time I started to really get into cars and wrenching and I remember reading all of the magazine articles about this truck. At the time, there was nothing else like it. A SUV w/AWD and 250HP and 350ft-lb of torque - who would want that? ME! The mileage will be horrendous, gas prices are going up, but I don't care. I just have to have this :D Details to follow once I have the signed title in my hand. I'm basically buying it sight unseen, sans a few pictures, but the price is right. I'll see if I can snap a few pictures of it while I'm there, but it may be too dark by that point. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
