    96 Jeep Grand Cherokee (90k miles), VS. 98 Chevy Blazer (96k miles).

    which one is worth the better buy (dependability). They are both atleast $5600. I am offering that or $5700.

    98 Blazer Pros

    Good reliable time tested motor
    decent power from the 4.3

    98 cons
    weak front ends... parts like ball joints, idler arms, pitman arms all need replaced prematurely
    cheap interior.
    noise
    gas mileage (on my ZR2 Blazer.. I average between 13-15mpg)


    I can't comment on the jeep other than if you plan on doing any wheeling, don't even consider the blazer go right for the jeep....

    I'd go w/ the Jeep. Whether it's a 4.0 or a v8, they are good motors.

    How many miles is "TOO" many miles on a Jeep? I have seen a few that are in good condition and the right price.
