Default WJ and the $4000 theroy

Hello, I am here trying to prove a theory. That I could buy a vehicle for up to $4k and nurse it along for 100k miles.

I purchased a WJ @ 145k, put new on tires, brakes, headlight lenses, parking break switch and have been driving merrily along for a year. Now I've got some transmission problems.

So I'm here to search and mine, and hopefully add to the collective.

I just bought a 1999 Grand Cherokee for my wife. We paid under $4k for it. It's the straight 6 with Select Trac 4WD. It only has 128K miles on it and I fully expect to make it well over 200K. Good luck with yours.

My transmission issue turned out to be a leak. Keeping it filled helps. Up to 175,000 miles. Today's issue is rich idle and power steering fluid driven coolant fan.
