I love the toyota better then jeeps....
The parts are cheaper and stronger. and they just don't die.
Ex: R&P less then $200, front Chromoly axels $500.
I ride mine hard and it can take it..... I don't know what your jeep is worth, but the yota would be stronger, it has a frame.
and have him throw in all the extra parts. i can help you with install....
have any question just ask me,

If you're wanting a dedicated trail rig the yota might be the way to go. If you're wanting a daily driver rig that you can wheel ,your cherokee would be better suited for that.

Some points to ponder

Do you have the bank roll to afford a true off road rig? Got a tow rig and trailer? Got the tools, work space, and know how to keep things in good repair?

The axle shafts "should" be ok. The 4 cylinder engines in those trucks aren't power beasts. The stock knuckles are a different story--definate weak link.

Make sure you weigh in all the pros and cons and make a wise decision. A dedicated "extreme" trail rig isn't for ever body. I've seen many folks go this route, dump a buttload of money into it, then realize they have a toy they only use a couple of times a year. Sadly many leave the hobby after this realization and sell their junk for pennies on the dollar.

Let me make this clear. I'm not trying to talk you into or out of it. Just make sure you think it through and make a decision based on what you can realistically do, not what you think you might can do.

well im on the hunt for a truck as of now something to dd and tow with then im be looking for a trailer im sure i would down size the tires and or gears to make it more road friendly as for the shop the drive way has worked in the past and i dont see that being a problem as long as its not 110 out and i can prolly get the shop at work if needed but over all i think i would enjoy the yota but miss the hell out of my cherokee

the yota looks street ready. If you go to check it out I will come with you and look it over if you want.
