I plan on picking up a used vehicle when me and the wife get our tax returns back. I need to get out of my sedan and get into something a little more capable.

I'm look at either a jeep cherokee or a nissan pathfinder.

What do you guys think?

The Jeep is a much more capable vehicle with tons of aftermarket support and is reliable to boot. If you have any intentions of modifying it in any way the Jeep will be much cheaper to modify. They are also fairly easy to work on should anything go wrong.

Depends on his intended use, though I will not argue that in terms of aftermarket support and availability of parts they are king, second to none.

I would love a wrangler, but I forgot to mention that I have 2 kids and need the interior space. I actually found a sweet 1989 cherokee laredo with 140K for $2000. It has a complete tune-up, brakes and new tires. The paint is faded, but has no rust. I think i may go with this one.

She's old, but think It might be exactly what I'm looking for. Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks

I guess I don't know what prices are like in your area, but I would never pay that much for that vehicle around here. I almost bought a 97 Grand Cherokee Limited (loaded, leather, etc) with a v8 and 150k on the ticker for $2000.
