I can't speak from experince about riding a modded GC becaus I have never been but the stock ride and interior is just amazing,I definitly like the GC better than my old Dakota already.I wanna keep and upgrade the interior to luxury as possible because it is my daily driver and a part time off-roader and most of my time will be spent driving,so I wanna keep the ride as comfortable as possible.For me the pros would be comfort/interior and coils all the way around. The cons would be the look, im not a huge fan.
I have heard of a LOT of electronics problems when it comes to the GC. Jeep isnt known for them at all.Hmmm... Pros... MUCH better ride, The 5.2l is the engine this Jeep was designed for. THe 4.0l just doesn't have enough power for a vehicle this heavy. The interior seems enormous compared to the Cherokee. For the driving I do the NP 249 is the perfect transfer case. My ZJ is my DD and needs to cope with our less than great snowplow drivers.
Cons... Interior electronics.. Jeep isn't known for them and the GC has WAY too many. All that plastic body cladding, just stuff to get ripped off and it eats up your wheelwell space.
That would be a very interesting build indeed, are you going to make it a reality?Cons- electrical and the 42re Junk box...
Pros- Size, coils, ride,
The 4.0L isn't all that bad offroad but sucks on.. And the 5.2's seem to get better gas mileage. There great wheeling with the wife and 3 kids in it.
If I have my way I want to build another, but it will be a '98 with the 5.9L, waggy 44's front and rear, D300 T-case flipped on a Claytons Long arm kit..

Really!?!Seems about right, you are going to be able to get those vehicles for dirt cheap because of the gas prices.
