I like the Jeep better. Never been much of a Ford guy, and Jeep offers a high performance version of the Cherokee.

It kinda depends on what you are going to do with it but if you are planning on wheeling at all I would go Jeep.

My experience with both....I cant Remember the Yr of the Jeep but it was Early 90's....Nothing but Break Downs....I also had a 91 Exploder,,230K miles at Trade in and only had problems with the AC toward the end....I know nothing about the newer models..

i voted cherokee...especially the 90's ones...the straight six motor is in a class for its own (puts out some good torque)...you can rack a lot of miles on it if you take care of it too. and if you are into wheeling I would get the jeep hands down the aftermarket area for jeeps are HUGE...

I like it, I think it is pretty sharp. Comparing a Grand Cherokee to a CJ is like comparing apples to oranges. They are built for a completely different purpose.

My GF has a 200 Grand Cherokee Limited.

Its OK! Other than Stupid little problems like the Dual heatzone always haveing some issue its been good. Knock on wood! I voted for the Jeep because this Jeep she has is Pretty good for in the snow and mud. Never been in anything crazy but WE had an Ice storm a couple of years ago and it was pretty nasty and it got us around pretty well. I even took it up a hill in the field my 400ex would not climb. Its a 4X4 though.

With the few votes, looks like the cherokee is winning.

I'm a Ford man, I really don't care for the new Jeeps. I really like the old one's though.

      I need to replace my 01 GMC Yukon. Nickel and diming me to death. I'm leaning towards a new Dodge. The Ford is my second choice. Here is what they look like.

      I just bought a 2000 explorer 400 4x4 from a guy @ work. He told me that he was running it the last time he had it out and it quit on him. He said that he changed the spark plug but just couldn’t get it to run again. When I got it home I tore all the plastic off it to make it easier to work on and get to everything. It seems to be getting spark but won’t fire even after putting some gas in the jug. He told me that he recalled that when this all started he recalls that it overheated too. Doesn’t seem to be any coolant in the radiator either. Oh yeah, it seems to have good compression too. I put my thumb over the cylinder port and cranked it and it’s hard to keep my thumb over the hole. I also pulled the flywheel to make sure that the woodruff keys was ok. There was some liquid (seemed to be coolant) in the recoil housing too, if that tells a story too. I also checked the crankcase dip stick to see if was overfilled but its not.

      I have no power to lights starter, and 4x4 switch. The cooling fan does not come on either. I installed a new battery. Still no power. I do hear a clicking sound when battery is connected. This sound cycles with or without the key turned on. The machine does start with the pull start. Any suggestions?
