Um, first thing I notice is its not a Grand Cherokee. That's the Cherokee. So if it's being sold as a Grand, I'd walk away right now. A 1998 GC looks like:

I googled this image, it is not mine, FYI.

As for other things, on the little Cherokee the gutters are great for roof rack systems. You can get very strong hold with that. Power-train wise, if it has the straight 6 4.0 liter, I have heard that is very good motor. But I have no experience other than just some anecdotal info.

If it was a Grand Cherokee, I'd have more info for you.
