  1. Hi all, well with ongoing issues with my WJ, I don't think it will be sorted before the 21st. So on that note I am happy to pass my place on to someone with a working vehicle! lol. I don't know the procedure for doing this so please let me know. Cheers
  2. Hi all, please count me in, particularly as I paid last night, lol

    Buying guide , Grand Cherokee V8

    Well I got it, and it's great! Looks really good, but interior is a bit dated although to be expected for a 12 year old car. Engine is super smooth and oh so quiet. The underneath of it is sooooo clean, hardly anything to mention at all. I am very pleased indeed :icon_e_biggrin:

    Buying guide , Grand Cherokee V8

    Wow, awesome. Thanks guys. Its a 2004 overland V8. 59000 miles! Private sale. Owned for last 10 years. MOT checks out online. All work done. The only issue is sometimes erratic idle which he puts down to throttle position sensor and he is supplying a replacement with the car. He has all supporting service history for work done. The whole car looks very good indeed, well in the pictures any way. I think all the things mentioned are things I would have checked. But its nice to have a list so I can make sure I don't miss anything. it can be easy to forget something in the heat of the moment. Cheers Daz and Jerry! Wish me luck! Having said that it can't be worse than my Lexus IS220d, no matter how bad it is LOL. I will let you know how I get on tomorrow and maybe even post a pic or two!

    Buying guide , Grand Cherokee V8

    Helloooo, Well I am off to see this Jeep tomorrow at 2pm. Has no one got any info on things to look our for?
  8. Hello all, Well finally getting around to buying a Jeep, it's been a while but I now have the chance to purchase. I am looking at a WJ,Overland V8 2004 on Saturday. I have looked, maybe badly, for any buying advise. Was hoping some kind person could give me a list of things to check or look out for? Many thanks.

    Commander Info Please

    Awesome, thanks for your replies :icon_e_biggrin: I will check out Jeepey.com. Hopefully I would hear any whine from the axles on a test drive. And as for swirl motors, egr valves, glow plugs and modules I guess I would only know if there was a warning light on the dash. But I would make one of the first jobs after buying to clean the egr anyway. I've had a couple of diesels now and always clean the egr every 10000 miles. It does make a difference. I guess I could always check the glow plugs with a multimeter before I buy as well :icon_e_biggrin: And your right, black with limo tint is the way I want to go! Although the ones I have seen seem to have like a cream? or grey interior. I want a black interior. Well lets see what happens. Thanks again for your replies. Cheers

    Commander Info Please

    Hello all :wav2 I'm completely new to Jeep, but I am seriously considering buying a Commander. My wife wants a bigger car, so after much research the Commander has caught my attention! I can't find anything that seems better value for money. And I actually like the look of it :icon_e_biggrin: Also only slightly bigger than the Grand Cherokee but has the 7 seat option. Great. My only concern is that I really don't know much, if anything about Jeeps. So before I make a huge mistake I was hoping some one here would be kind enough to give me a list of things to look out for when I go to buy. I've looked around the site but can't really find things to look out for, or be aware of. Well it's good to be here, and I thank you all in advance. Badger.
