So I bought a new ride, not a BMW (Jeep)

Well my car has been in the shop for a few days and I took this opportunity to buy a new beater. It's a 1998 Jeep Cherokee Classic 4x4. I really just jumped in and should have researched more but I let my impulses get the best of me.





So now my real reason for posting... Any prior Jeep owners have any useful info they can share? What should I be looking out for? What kind of maintenance does this thing need? Any parts I should swap out ASAP?

Thanks!

That's a nice XJ!

I had a 95 2-door. It was green and ugly but it was reliable, everyone loved it (people love Jeeps I guess), and very cheap to fix (rarely)

I like 'em a lot - I want another Jeep now but probably a Wrangler this time.

PS - get a pair of E-Code H4 headlights, you'll be much happier with them than the stock sealed beams.

resist the temptation to put big fat tires - they kill the mileage considerably. It is inefficient to start off..

Mine had the 5-speed manual gearbox and it was quite a quick little truck.

I wanted something I can work on as well as use as a daily driver. And I also wanted a larger car I can haul my gear around in.
