Re: grand cherokee owners advice
i own a 96 GC, it has the q-track set up-which is ok but i will be adding the part time conversion eventually. I have the V8-318(5.2L). i drove some with the 6 and they performed great but i like the extra power. the newer models have a little more power and get better gas milage(4.9L v8). B/T/W you can save money if you dont intend to let it go off pavement and get a 2wd laredo- but i hate to see that-it is a jeep. i have the limited package (great thing about the lmtd. packg.-NO CHROME) and it's nice i guess but i wouldnt miss it-so you could save some cash by going laredo there too. but all-in-all they are great fun to drive especially w/V8, and it is very at home off-road as well as a daily driver. I have made a few mods to mine but nothing extreme. Daystar coil spacers to allow a little more room in the fender wells, a set of rs 9000's, and magnum computer and k&n. but thats cuz i am a jeep junky. more, more, more, more.
hope it helps and i hope you change your mind about the "paved roads only". but i'm sure if you buy one- you will
77 cj5 sorta, V8, 4"lift, 33's, lotsa miss'n metal
