so my dd right now is my 01 grand cherokee, 4.0, slow as hell. its been my driver and my college car, and its showing, my back liftgate has a huge dent in it from when i backed into a pole, and my front is kinda messed up from where i hit someone and kinda fixed it with cheap replacement parts. everything else is fine. when i got it it kept mixing oil and coolant so long of the short is it needed a new motor so its got a chrysler reman 4.0 in it with a warranty, and ive replaced the cooling fan, the relay for it, its got a new motor, waterpump, thermostat and its running great now. its a pretty reliable driver. however the 4.0 is terribly slow, and they are known for their ****ty 42re transmissions. i cant help but think my trans is going to grenade at any time. ive already got a new liftgate for it, 100 bucks i foudn one for, and its gonna cost me between 200-300 to get it painted. the kicker is is im not a very school oriented person, my dad told me if i graduated with good grades and we could sell the jeep, hed pretty much put me in a 2006-2007 ish f150 fx4 in shadow grey like i want. ive been dabbling around with the idea of a truck for a while and i really like them, and being able to tow the mustang would be a large plus, and also id like go acquire an atv here at sompoint, thus making a truck more useful. i used to beinto the jeep thing, and worked on it allot, but now im moreso doign the mustang, hunting, firearms thing, and dont do anything to the jeep anymore. i feel like a truck would be more versatile. this is what it looked like after new tires, a good cleaning, and when it was in great shape: and now, its got the front end by the pass. headlight messed up and that huge dent in the liftgate, and its just showing its age more. so i come to you stangnet, jeepforum is going to say jeep, and my f150 forum will say f150. you guys are about as neutral as i can get. jeeps got gas mileage better than the f150, and ive got allot of money into it, and the truck would be a nice truck that has new things to it and is more suited for a graduated on his way person than the jeep in my opinion. so should i just fix up the jeep, maybe replace the shocks, lift the front a half inch so it sits level, put a nice system in it and call it quits or move foward on the truck thing and sell the jeep. another idea would be to sell my jeep and put up more money and find a nice lower mileage v8 laredo? lets hear your opinions.. thanks guys.
