A great on and off-road vehicle
- Original water pump broke at 115k miles.
- Original clutch was replaced at 120k miles.
- Shifter knob came off.
What an awesome 4x4!
I put a 3" lift and 31" tires on my Jeep and I am extremely impressed at it's off-road capabilities. I feel I can go just about anywhere.
Other mods I am very happy about are a Flowmaster 3 chamber performance muffler (~$80) and Rusty's Air Tube with K&N cone shaped air filter ($60). Both of these mods have increased the gas mileage and performance significantly.
Unlike most trail vehicles, my Jeep also looks great on the road.
However, Jeep did not do a great job on the paint. The clearcoat has disappeared on the top of the rear hatch. Also, there are no cup holders!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
