After 3 1/2 years of good service, I sold Shelley on March 20th of 2010. It's finally time for someone else to make memories with her.____________________This was my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. It has a 5.2L 318 V8, 44RE tranny, and NV249 transfer case (Quadra-Trac). My dad bought this Jeep for me on December 28th of 2006 in the Atlanta area, with a combination of metro-Raleigh and metro-Atlanta miles; 165,000 miles altogether. It was cared for well (as it's still being), it's had (and is still receiving) oil changes/full-services every 3000 miles since birth, was serviced at a Chrystler dealership under warranty until a few months after my purchase, and I have almost every receipt of every service trip. It was parked off-and-on for 4 months prior to my purchasing, since the owner had bought a new vehicle; but there were no leaks, no squeaks, no vibes; no problems upon purchase. It was clean inside and out, but the seats were fairly worn, as it was used for business trips and family. The exterior has some chipped paint above the rear hatch due to a "boat landing" prior to my purchase, and it was hit in the rear-left fender, repaired, and repainted.
In the last couple of years, this Jeep has become well recognized in the southeastern Alabama/northwestern Florida area by teenagers and young adults. I have transported dozens between the Evergreen, AL; Wetumpka, AL; Dothan, AL; and Destin, FL area. From dramatic trials and tribulations, to real life-and-death emergencies, and of course for fun; my ZJ has got me and everyone that's come along from point-A to point-Z and everywhere in-between without ever failing me or them during important trips. I love this Jeep, along with most who have ever rode at least once in it. I'm quite thankful my dad found this vehicle for me, and ten-fold thankful that the previous owner took such good care of it before I came along.
Alright then, enough of the emotional tribute to this piece of machinery; now for the pics!

I've driven this Jeep an extra 75,000 miles since purchase, and thus far, the only major repairs have been a transmission replacement and power steering pump/pulley replacement.
