Mario...The 1998-1999 or even the 1991-97 models seem to hold up very well.  Both 4.0L and 2.5L are MPI and reliable.  2000-2001 are okay, many get good service from them, too.  I'm partial to 1998-99 from my experience.

Both the manual and automatic transmissions are very reliable.  The manual transmission for these years is either an AX5 (2.5L) or AX15 (4.0L).  (2000-2001 use the NV3550, it's just okay and parts are scarce. Many replace the NV3550 with an AX15.)  The automatic is an AW4 Aisin, very reliable and well built.
