I had the 4wd replaced at 230 000 km
I think all the salt that they use on the roads in Ontario were a major contribution to this rusting out.
The roof rusted early in its life.
These jeeps will rust along the drip rail, and above it, above the windshield, and inside the gas door.
I have also had to sand prime and paint the side rockers 3 times. They always rust.
I wish it was lubed and undercoated earlier in its life.
Had to Replace the rad.
The rims rust easily.
I replaced the starter once.
The jeep weighs much less than many SUVs. They are uni-body construction.
They may be a sensitive ride, but handle like a dream.
They have a wide stance which is great for traction and handling.
The 4.0L engine is fast! way more torque than my 93 jimmy with a 4.3 v6.
The In-line 6 is way better than the V6.
The steering takes some getting used to.
You feel like you need to back-steer out of a turn. But you get used to it quickly.
The jeep has the superior 4wd system no matter what anyone says.
Even the 80s Jeep 4wd is superior in comparison with the 2000 5.7L 4wd dodge Durango.
This vehicle will never get stuck anywhere (unless the 4wd has rusted off)
You will be able to pull your friends suburban out of the ditch for him.
