but the JEEP 4x4 is one of only a few systems i've experienced that easily beats a toyota, the another one being a 4x4 superduty.

but out of curiosity, just how much easier would it be to do a head job on a toyota 4.0?

seems the block first patented in 1936 ( AMC 232=jeep 4.0) would be easier.
on a yota (well....pickups with a 4 cyl) just seam alot easyer to work on

i imagine a 4 popper would be easier... 2 less cylinders and all that would have gone with them, must save a lot of space under the hood!

You do know that the head needs bolted and unbolted in a certain order. It also gets torqued to a certain in/lbs.

Google is your friend.

My GF has an 01 Grand Cherokee and I'm surprised by it. Handles the snow and ice better than my Taco does. 4x4 system in it is quite capable. It's the Quadra Track II not the Quadra Drive unfortunately, but it's still a damn tank.
And full time 4x4 is pretty frigging nice for city driving with dozy roads.

A head gasket job on the 4.0 I6 is cake. What did you expect? Not to take off the head?

Yeah. That back bolt (closest to the firewall) is crap though. Threaded so close to the inside rim of the head. Gotta silicone the crap out of it or get coolant in the block.

X 23435 or you'll just warp that head again and leak coolant everywhere.
also if your buddy has the cash take the head to a shop to have it looked at and tested, maybe $100 tops. at least it was in my experience with a volvo 3.0 4 banger that need machining.
spending on a manual now will save you headaches down the road man, i'd buy one.

On snow/ice, it was aboslutely worthless and it was cheap and very poorly put together. You dont even want to know how much the resale value sucks on those things.
Honestly, I dont see whats so great about Jeeps. IMO, they are all marketing hype.

You've got to be kidding me. Jeeps, those with the 4.0L especially, are damn near bulletproof. Not to mention decent on gas (18-20 mpg easy) and very fun to drive with 190HP and loads of torque. The turning radius on a Cherokee makes my double cab look like a Kenworth.

My friend had an '88 Cherkokee Chief 4.0L 5 speed with 180k miles on it as his first car in high school. He beat the bag out of it, never spent a dime on repairs, and sold it to another guy in the class just ahead of me. I taught the 2nd guy how to drive stick on it and it was his daily driver for almost 2 years. At 210k miles the 2nd gear syncro went bad and he finally bought a new car because it would have cost more for a transmission than the Jeep was worth.

Another friend of mine had a 92 Cherokee 4.0L automatic that ran to 240k miles, even after being rolled on it's side on a snowy road in Maine one ski season. I bought it from her dad for $300 and drove it for a winter in college...w/ 4x4 I pulled a full size Ford Van out of a snowbank and my friend's FWD escort out of a frozen parking lot where he got stuck trying to drive in foot deep snow. After that trouble free winter I parked it for the summer and the alternator seized when my parents started it 2 months later. I junked it because I didn't have a need for a car at that point and, like my friend above, an alternator would have cost almost as much as the car.

Jeep isn't held in high regard because of "marketing hype" they're praised because they've built quality vehicles since WWII.
