Nice!! Don't debate, there is no comparison in the 2 especially when it comes to resale value!! A Cherokee, while popular, will never have the crazy demand that Wranglers enjoy.   They are one of the few vehicles you can buy, do nothing but drive and recover all your money or more when you want to sell, and the mileage is almost never a factor. I say go for it! ;D

Well that's the tough part, initial payment....and any subsequent payments required due to off road impacts and general damage. ;D Also 4x4 mod.s are like all other good and fun things $$$$ and addictive! More lift, better gears,better tires,better differentials,axles,manual hubs,quick disconnect sway bar end links,stronger transfer cases, and so on and so on... I have always liked a nice purpose built utility vehicle, but paying for it is a different story! ;)

I havent really been into off roading much, but the Isuzu forum I'm also on leans towards a lot of expedition type rigs. They do a lot off road stuff and mudding and try to rock crawl, but it seems like people take really nice reliable cars and the destroy the running gear by either filling them with silt water or breaking usable parts. I would love to have a capable 4 wheel drive little pickup but I don't want to spend hundreds on lifts and thousands on tires just to rip them up. I can understand a lot of things, but those are hard to understand.

With that said, I wouldn't mind A wrangler, but it does seem as though they attract a certain amount of douschey people and it's always about their jeep thing and how much flare they can bolt on! If I bought a wrangler, I'd want a very stock looking one because very few poeple do that and I'm not in a pissing contest.  I'd rather have the wrangler over the Cherokee though. good luck selling the other stuff.

What's a cf moto?

Cf moto is a 250 cc auto motorcycle, no clutch ,  I am not for mid holes and serious stuff.  I want to get out and play a little , camp,  tow bicycles and jet skis ,  stuff like that,  I got the Cherokee for the 4 doors and price,   But I have always liked the wranglers

Gave up on the wrangler idea,  but took the jeep to big fork today ,  had a blast and made it up and though stuff I wasn't sure about,  I am new to 4 wheel drive,  I have taken the thing and a Baja a lot of places when I was younger, but they were more speed to get over and though things
