I believe the early model 4.0's had some valve problems also. Maybe someone here can be more specific on this.

Hell all Jeep 4.0's from 91-99 have the manifold problem whether it's a Cherokee or TJ. I wouldn't let that deter you if the deal is good enough. If you have to have it replaced then probably 100 for the part and then 400 for the install at a shop if you can't do it yourself.

my 00 has never had any of the dreaded manifold issues. which is a shame because I really wanted to upgrade.
