I've heard the 4.7L is a pretty good engine if you take care of it. The 4.0l is a great engine whether you take care of it or not! Well you do need to change the oil. 300k miles from a 4.0l is normal. 225k miles out of the AW4 tranny is normal. If it's a 4x4 you want then the 231 or 242 transfer case is head and shoulders better than the 249 in the Grand.

Now you could get a Grand with a 4.0l and throw in a NP231 transfer case for next to nothing. Personally I'd just go with the XJ but I've had mine for 18 years. I never cared for the Grand Cherokees, and they were never built as well as the Cherokee.

I think it would be fun to have one of the new Grands with the hell cat(?) engine though.

I had no idea you had such animosity towards Cody and his Jeep, Tony. I thought this was a safe place

So...now my wife has decided that I need a Honda Pilot with more room and seating capacity. I guess I can't complain considering I get to keep my TJ. Oh well, it was fun to dream. Thanks for all the replies!

So why is the XJ built better than the WJ?
