The 4.0 was a straight 6 not v and no the xj has always been unibody. I do this for a living and have been for over 20 years. Frames can take more weight usually but some are week anyway. And being ridged is not always good off road. Cherokee and grand cherokees are pretty good at what they do. In any event any 4x4 is better then no 4x4. The best part about hunting, hiking, an off roading is getting out there and enjoying nature. It’s great to see guys using all manner of vehicle to get out and have fun.Wasn't the Cherokee RWD/4WD and body on frame until the newest version came out? I believe Fiat then switched them to unibody FWD/AWD. I see a lot of the older ones with the 4.0L V6 that seem to be popular with the off road enthusiasts. I think the same thing was also done to the Grand Cherokee as well. I have nothing against unibody crossovers, especially when gas is hovering around $4/gal. I just think the traditional setup provides more rigidity for really avid off roading.
Nope. I thought they were cool looking so I Googled them and saw how expensive they were, and said forget it. My lightweight 1-man tent still works just fine.Anyone done serious research on rooftop tents? I'm considering one for my truck, but there's a hundred choices and I'm not really sure I want it just sitting there the 95% of the year I'm not in the woods.
