Platinum5.9 is on a distinguished road
New to forum, just got a 5.9

Hey there guys I replied to a post on here about another member getting a 5.9, so instead of clogging up his post I figured it would be best to start my own.

Anyway, I have owned Jeeps in the past, had a 1996 Grand Limited for about 5 years and traded it in for a new car, sold the new car and needed something different. I ran across a couple selling or rather trying to get rid of there 5.9 that was smacked in the front end. They wanted to off it fast and told me 900 bucks. So needless to say I jumped all over it. It will take about 500 bucks to fix, but hell it is worth that.

As far as the 5.9 it has 155,000 highway miles, the previous owner was on the road alot and drove it probably 400-500 miles a day 5 days a week in the winter. But she had just had the front steering components all rebuilt, new cv joints in the front diff and all that non sense. New Tires also.

So I guess that you can say I scored a pretty good deal, it runs perfect, I will have to work on the brakes they are mushy, it sat for about 6 months after the wreck, so maybe so air in the lines of something. And the front end wanders a bit, not sure what could be causing this as everything is brand new, maybe there is a caliper that is hung up causing all of the issues, I will have to figure that one out. But here it is






I am sure that I will have some newb questions as it has been about 8 to 10 years since I owned a Jeep and new all of there quirks.

Take care

Mike
