That question is like asking how long I will live. How well it was put together when it was built, how it was maintained and how hard it was driven are important factors. If it's a 4.0, those engines last well over 200K if maintained...transmissions are unpredictable.
I do suggest that you change ALL fluids in whatever you buy, to establish a "baseline" for future service.
Every time I get a different vehicle I dedicate around $300 just for that purpose.(and routinely go well over 300K with every one.

How much could I expect to pay for a new 4.0L engine? I just got my 94 Jeep grand cherokee laredo for $200, so putting an engine in it will still be a great deal, I think.

that depends on what part of the country you live in. here in nys, a 4.0 will cost approx. at a junk yard ) low miles. about 3 to 4 hundred.

My brother is looking at an 01 grand cherokee with 88000 miles he's 21 and has a kid and girlfriend just wondering what the life expectancy is on these jeep the one he's lookin at is fully loaded laredo...

The Grand Cherokee has been a well-proven SUV since it's introduction in 1993...many improvements have been included since the first model...The Laredo is usually the sporty version...just under the Luxury trimmed Limited. Parts and service are available everywhere...a great plus when Chrysler purchased Jeep a few years back too. They do hold value well, but the best bet to compare purchase price now would be to contact your Bank for Loan Value figures on the 2001 with 88,000 miles. The rule of thumb is if you can purchase the Jeep for the Loan Value is a great Deal. Also you can look on-line for other similar Jeeps and see what they are selling for. At 88,000 miles some wear items may need struts, brakes, tires, tune up parts...fule and all filter changes...Ask to see a service record if possible to see what repairs have been carfax info on certain repairs...The Grand Cherokee is worth checking out. A great car for single, or Family...Hope this helps...:)

I have a 96' Grand Cherokee Laredo . while im driving my gauges will shut off and my windows freeze up. and my doors will relock and everything will come back on. what could the problem be?

May sound crazy but have the alternator checked, when it fails it will shut off the gauges and make all of the electronic equipment act strange. I had a cherokee that did this to the gauges but that was b/c it was full of mud from my previous trip.

All wheel drive v8 issues 96 Jeep Grnd Cherokee Ltd

Any all wheel drive will give less fuel miles.(compared to ones you engage as needed) The Chrysler v8 is a time proven engine, pretty much a copycat of a chevy with some changes to make it their own. Overall, I haven't heard any really bad stuff about them. If you look at the problems on this site, there seem to be fewer jeep probs than all other vehicles. (even though some problems are really weird!!!)
What you really need to see is the vehicles history to make sure it's been maintained and has not been back to a shop for the same thing over and over.
Good luck!
