Just got my First Jeep a couple of weeks ago, 1999 Grand Cherokee Laredo,
I6, NV242, 164k on the ODO.
Runs very well and seems well cared for.
I'm amazed at the wealth on info available on the web, seems like if a problem arises I should have no problem getting it figures out with the help of the Jeep community.
Happy to say I'm a hands on guy and will be changing out all of the fluids in the near future.
the plastic cladding doesn't look too bad, as long as you don't look to close
