BEAST!!!!! by Hot Wheels from Bemidji on 01/23/2011. Trim: 1989 Jeep Cherokee Laredo 4-Door 4WD, Owned 2 years.
Pros: It's a beast. 242k miles and still running strong. Not V8 power but good power for the age. It's lifted 4in and has 31x10.50 tires and does 0-60 in 10-11 seconds. Unstoppable in low range, can't touch the dash when I stomp on the gas! MPGs are decent. 17-20 around home and 25+ on long trips courtesy of the oversized tires! The seats are amazing, the French really know how to make seats! Huge aftermarket support of whatever you want. Solid axles front and back so offroading is nothing. Lifting is typically cheap and easy also. Shift on the fly capabilities is my favorite feature!
Cons: Rough ride, rusty but what do you expect? Weather stripping is wearing out, leaks a little oil and coolant, and lastly has the awful death wobble due to the bigger tires. Otherwise its awesome!!!
Overall review: My dad owned it for 10 years before me and there was a time when it was always in the shop, but what do you expect for 190k+ miles? Now it has 242k and I love it. Auto tranny doesn't slip and still the original! It has the SelecTrac and I couldn't be happier with it. Chrome everywhere! Offroad cappabilitys are mostly dependant on the tires but my dad took it everywhere with the stock 205s. I will never sell it!!!
