Having just bought a 2000 WJ grand cherokee, I am really glad to have found this forum !! Have had a 2003 overland diesel in the past, and had moved on from the Jeep, when this V8 popped up. It had been essentially parked in a farm shed ( kept clean and run occasionally) for the past three years and hasn't had registration for 2.
Roadworthy for registration was new wiper blades , secure the battery and two new tyres, and away we go. Seems to have been looked after with only 137k since new and a full service history (books) that I have been able to verify.
All electrics work and the motor runs like a clock, so very happy indeed, and looking forward to enjoying on the highway.
