Wew had a 96 Grand Cherokee with the 4.0. The truck was nice overall, but the foot space for the driver was cramped. (i'm 6 foot) I felt like my feet couldn't get more than 6 inches apart for each other. The only other complaint (minor) is that the 4.0 is a LOUD engine. Powerful and dependable, but loud!!!! We ocassionally moved a 6,000 lbs cruiser on a trailer for short boat ramp tows but I wouldn't recommend much more than you are considering hauling.
