If you choose an EB, go for EB II - 4.0L engine more refined than 3.9 in early EB's. Most problems of EB would be fixed, but go for an ED, as all problems and bugs were fixed, just my opinion. Fuel consumption should still be good - but these cars are reaching 13 yrs in age. Watch for high mileage and usual engine noises. Check the engine for head gasket replacement too.
