I made the exact same move you're considering...no kids, yet. But I wanted something with more room, a little more practical, better towing/hauling capacity, etc. I've had 3 XJs, and loved all of them. Still would love to have one again as a toy....
You get all the creature comforts of the Grand Cherokee with much less of the "fancy"; so it still has that rugged, boxy appeal that the XJs are known for, ha.
There's another current thread in the New Member's section about that's got some great posts on what's out there for options and what to avoid, check into it if you haven't already! --- https://www.jeepcommander.com/forums...tml#post534247
