    I ended up finding a clean low KlM's 5.7 grand cherokee with a little additional bling for just over the $11K after the government took its hefty slice, while i am still a little unsure about how long its going to remain trouble free i figure that unless its a big issue i should still be a little ahead, although not nearly as much if i'd gone for the more sensible but more expensive 3.0L grand cherokee.

    If my next post is asking for used jeep motors then you do of course have the right to laugh at my stupidity.
    I owned a 5.7 in the same WH series as yours. Being a Limited spec it will have the front and rear electronic lockers, and is therefore very very good off road.
    Mine had a diff whine in the back that was repaired under warranty, and a power steering pump that failed out of warranty. New one shipped in 2 days from Just For Jeeps in the US for under $100 after Dealer wanted $500 and 8 week wait.
    They do seem to eat front diff bushes so if it get a clunk in the front it's that. Otherwise they're actually a very sturdy thing, and they tow great.

    They're rated to 350kg on the tongue.

    Just off topic a bit, I saw a new Patrol today, looks like the Nissan design team have finally got out of the 80's, although the front does look very Patrol like, the car in general looks pretty good, not at all like it was built from a Lego kit, like the last 25 years have been.

    The Y62s are the biggest disappointment if you're after a real truck. IFS front end...

    The worst choice Nissan made were getting rid of the 4.2s... The second worst choice was the Y62 with the IFS front end.

    Know nothing about the mechanicals, just commenting on the appearance, bit hard to see stuff like IFS and motors when in traffic....
