Default 1997+ Cherokee 4x4 around PNW

Looking for a 1997+ Cherokee around the pacific northwest area. Preference is to manual transmission but am open to the idea of a snoozemission. I'm in Eugene and would be willing to travel as far south as Medford and North as Seattle. Would prefer mostly stock(of course) but would consider modified examples. Looking to spend between 2-4k. 4k for low mileage better kept conditions, 2k for beater-ish examples.

your not sacrificing... the AW4 is a very strong automatic and can hold a lot of power as well... but like all automatics it needs to be taken care from the beginning... the ax15 is technically stronger but not by a whole lot man... very good tranny...

Thanks for the replies guys. I might just try a slushbox, since there seems to be more of the 97+ Cherokees in autotrajic. I will edit my first post to reflect the changes.
