'98 jeep grand cherokee laredo
well I finally got my hands on a back up/snow vehicle. too bad its a hand me down. my father and I have been looking for a cheap throw away truck or jeep for us for about 2 years now. after last winter we said fuck it since if i could drive this car threw that snow(8" fell in one storm multiple times) I should be fine.
well back in aug my father started filling out his papers to start drawing his pension at the age of 55. they asked him what he wanted done with his IRAs. he was like well how many do i have and what can i do with them. he got surprised to find out he had 5 different ones that equaled $15k. he threw one into his pension to make it add another $9 a month, rolled over a $3k into my nephews name, and took the other 3 for a total of $8k after taxes and penalties.
about a week later he shows up at my house in a '15 Nissan frontier and looks at me goes, "you got your jeep....but i will still need to use it once in awhile." so now i have a grand Cherokee that i have to piece back together and clean back up.....but i do have a low, low mileage(not even 128,xxx) '98 grand Cherokee in my drive.
which brings me to my first fix......do you guys think like me and think the turn signal switch is bad? it is clicking really loud and when you turn left or have hazards on it flashes really fast but right and it blinks normal. after that im off to fix the interior fan motor. im not going to reach over and pop the glove box to get it started every morning.
