Of these two... '98 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited or 2001 Mercedes ML55 AMG. I've always loved the 1 year only 5.9 Grand Cherokee. Handsome, ballsy, and typically very well cared for. There's one local with 68k miles for $7500. A couple weeks ago I remembered the Benz. 100 hp and 30 ft/lbs of torque ballsier than the Jeep. I know the first ML's weren't well regarded when they debuted in '98, but most of the ills had been addressed by the time the Alabama Hammer (ML55) came about in 2000. There's one of these local as well, 125k miles, asking $9000, but currently being auctioned at no reserve, starting at $5000. I took a cursory look at it this week, looks good on the outside, wheels could use a refinish, will need tires and rotors halfway soon. I might go drive it tomorrow. Which would you choose?
