Through an odd twist of fate, I wound up owning two very similar 1992 Jeep Cherokee’s (XJ). The first ’92 I purchased as a commuter as I had sold off my of my commuter, a 2003 Dodge Neon. I wound up working closer to home with a new job, so fuel mileage wasn’t as big of a worry, plus with the sale of the Neon, we were able to finish paying off the wife’s car (no more car payments for us!).
The second ’92 was purchased solely to take us out west on the cheap. Since my ’87 XJ wasn’t exactly a good highway cruiser for the wife, I figured we’d risk a $2k XJ trip:
As I stated earlier, this XJ’s role in life was to take us for our first trip out west, and back, for less than it would have cost us to rent something. I can safely say it pulled it off quite well, and I was able to sell it for a slight profit to boot!
Here is the post on that trip (click me!)
