General Tips for a WK2 owner

What tip would you have wished you had known when you bought your Grand Cherokee?

I have received some great advice already on TSB's.

Re: General Tips for a WK2 owner

I was aware that suspension travel is less on independent suspensions but it didn't worry me. I figured that better handling on bitumen where I drive 99% of the time at speed, was more conducive to health. However, after going off-road, I was disapointed to find how limited the suspension travel really was. Wheels in the air seems the norm with WK2s. No regrets. I would still buy it again.

Re: General Tips for a WK2 owner

Get what you want the first time. Don't let price be a deterrant. Research all the options out there and rank them as must haves, would be nice, and don't really need it. This will help you when you get to the dealer. Have fun and enjoy. There's nothing like driving a jeep.
