GRAND CHEROKEE IS THE BEST JEEP EVER

by DERIK JACOBS
(WELLINGTON, SOUTH AFRICA)




I AM VERY PROUD TO SAY THAT I DRIVE A 2006 5.7L GRAND CHEROKEE LIMITED JEEP.

IT HAS 51,000 KM ON THE CLOCK. I ENJOY ITS ENORMOUS ENGINE POWER AND HOW QUICKLY YOU CAN PASS ANOTHER VEHICLE. IT'S SORT OF ADDICTIVE.

IN THE PAST WE DID A LOT OF 4X4 TRIPS AND I CAN TELL YOU THIS SUV IS LIKE A TRACTOR ON STEROIDS. IT STOPS AT NOTHING.

THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THE GROUND CLEARANCE. I JUST NEED ABOUT 50 MM OR MORE.

IT'S A PITY THAT JEEPS IN SOUTH AFRICA ARE NOT AS HIGHLY RATED AS TOYOTA LAND CRUISERS.


Larry's Comment: I agree Derik. The Toyota's are nice and quite capable, but a well dressed 4x4 Jeep Grand Cherokee can stand with the best of them in my opinion.

Suspension Lift
by: Rich

Derik:

The Grand has great capabilities. Old Man Emu (one of several strong Australian manufacturers) makes a 60mm (2 1/2") suspension lift that is very well-behaved on the highway and holds up very well off-road. I've been hammering one of their kits on a TJ for about 225,000 km and it continues high performance. This will open up your wheel wells a bit and allow mounting larger tires. Half the gain in tire diameter becomes added clearance.

Thanks for repping JEEP in South Africa.
