I love finding forgotten gems

Cars that are a little bit special, but that 99.9% of the population would never give a second glance. Cars like this 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited. It was only built for M/Y 1998, the last year of the first gen Grand Cherokee (ZJ). As the name would imply, it was an even posher version of the top tier Limited Grand Cherokee, and was fitted with a 5.9 Magnum V8 making 245 horsepower and 345 lb⋅ft of torque (same engine as the Ram SS/T). It hit 60 in 6.8 seconds, and because this was before the era of Cayennes and Urus and AMG/M SUVs, that made it just about the quickest SUV you could buy in the U.S. Of the more than 1.6 million ZJ Grand Cherokees ever sold, less that 1% were 5.9 Limiteds. This one seems to be in pretty nice shape with no visible rust or damage. Neat.
