The review of the origins & history of the Jeep brand is excellent. There then follows a review of the various models in pretty much all their incarnations and variants. The final chapter features one-offs and specials - some suitably bizarre. The photographs are all excellent.

I suppose the publisher set a limit to the size of the book, so the treatment of practical matters relating to each model is necessarily restricted. It is not, after all, intended as a workshop manual.

But I was hoping for more than I got on the Cherokee [XJ] but there was one item that was immediately relevent and valuable - the XJ's front hubs inevitably go west and replacement is "disproportionately costly". As mine were making tell-tale clonking noises, this one phrase set me on the trail of a more economical way to get the job done than putting it in the hands of Chrysler Jeep, whose quote was eyewatering.

A combination of that well-know auction site and a decent local garage saved me hundreds of pounds, so despite the lightweight coverage of maintenance/repair issues, this book paid for itself in spades.

Thus it can be thoroughly recommended because there may be another phrase in the book that does the same trick for you.

This edition was purchased for a ludicrously cheap price and I wasn't expecting much. However, the nice volume was full of interesting bits and pieces that helped my son enjoy his Jeep more.

I thought this might be a bit of a light weight publication but it covers the XJ Cherokee history in detail, plus the Grand Cherokee & even the Wrangler which was unexpected.

Some good photos & buying advice. I now know I want a post '97 facelift model.

Great book, everything you need to know about the xj and very useful because there isn't a Haynes manual for the jeep I have (xj 2.5td) so this was just what I needed really, well worth a read though.

Love this book. Not really a mine of details but fun to read, some nice pictures too.
A bit outdated now, but who cares. The older cars were best anyway!
