Last month, I went through hell trying to fix and drive home a supremely rare, 260,000 mile, manual transmission Jeep Grand Cherokee that I’d bought sight unseen for $700 from the Middle Of Nowhere, Colorado.

This ‘One Owner’ 1946 Farm Jeep Has A Fascinating And Mysterious History

I still own my first car. It’s a 1992 Jeep Cherokee XJ that I bought in college in 2010. It’s a vehicle that I crashed, hydrolocked, and ruined with a lift kit, and yet I can’t get let go. That’s why this “one owner” 1946 Willys CJ-2A is so fascinating to me. I get why […]

How A Stranger’s Old Chevy Pickup Got Me Over The Snowy Rockies To The ‘Holy Grail’ Jeep Grand Cherokee

“Would you like help not dying in Colorado?” asked Denver reader Jason in an email. I’d soon be flying and renting a car to drive over the Rockies during a bad snowstorm and Jason, whom I’d never met, was offering me the keys to an old Chevy GMT400-series pickup truck—one that would capture my heart […]

Here’s My Idiotic Plan To Drive A Broken 260,000-Mile ‘Holy Grail Of Jeep Grand Cherokees’ Across The Country

I want to be upfront about this: My plan to fly to Colorado with two suitcases full of car parts and tools, repair my $700 “Holy Grail” Jeep Grand Cherokee’s significant mechanical problems and then drive the 260,000 mile SUV 1,500 miles back to Michigan all in a span of four days is deeply flawed.
