i had one as a dd, lived in lac la hache at the time, was great on gas on the highway, towed the boat nice, comfy. had 470,000k, original motor and trany. ran great and rolled it off knife creek road, endoed then flipped 6 times and walked away. so, id say its safe too. and i limped it home a few days later so id say tough as well.

The grand was a heavy ass jeep with a week ass recarnated 318 motor. the rear wheel wells were verry small [smaller than the cherokee] so wheel size is limited unless u want big lift. And the computer systems in them are way over doen.. 3 computers all have to talk to each other for the dam thing to run properly. You would be better off if u wanted to get some thing a little newer and cleener start looking for a cherokee classic 95 and newer. Look for the auto aw4 with the 242.
