Maybe you should take better care of your equipment if you want it to last.

Summary:

The best truck I will ever find. Ever..

Faults:

Rear main seal has a leak. Smells like oil after getting hot.

Speedometer sensor went out. Easy fix.

Broke out the window. Another easy fix with a used window from the local salvage yard.

Basic tune up components.

Headliner fell down. Covered it with fabric from Wal-Mart.

Typical jeep paint. The clearcoat on the roof and hood is just about compeletley gone.

A couple squeaks in the front end when I stop.

Brakes are kinda noisy, but it could be dust.

Temp gauge went out.

Gas gauge has never been accurate.

General Comments:

I love this truck. It's fast for a truck. With 190 horsepower and 220 Ft. Lbs. of torque, it'll light up the rear tires. It's comfortable with buckets and a console. One of the most fun vehicles I've owned.

A little hard on gas at an average of 16 mpg. Oh, well.

4wd works great. I've only gotten stuck once in the nastiest mud. Ended up axle deep on a county road in February. Perfect for northwest winters.

I've added all of the factory Laredo trim to the interior and it looks great.

I've got a few dents the fix. The previous owner hit some things in reverse. I put a steel bumper on it to replace the stock one because of it.

I've got some wide offset steel wheels for it that look great. I plan on getting some bigger tires and a lift kit this spring for it.

The only other drawback it the fact that I can only take one person with me in it.

This truck can go anywhere, do anything, and look great doing it. Parts are cheap because of all the Cherokees around here in the salvage yards. Easy to work on, fun to drive. Reliable as ever. I hope to give this truck to my kids, if I can let go of it...

Fabulous review, I love my 4X4 Eliminator too.

Where do I get a new box or quarter panels?

They just don't make 'em anymore

I'm considering making an aluminium flat bed for it, but I don't wanna look like Jethro!

Summary:

This truck is amazing!!!

Faults:

The only thing that's really gone wrong with my buddy's truck, is that it would constantly over heat, and we couldn't figure it out. He replaced the water pump and the radiator, but nothing worked, so I took the thermostat out, and it's only over heated once since then, and that was because he didn't keep the coolant topped up.

Other than that, it is the best truck I've ridden in.

One thing I love about it, was that we were cruising down the road in the rain, and a semi went by, and we hydroplaned, did a 720 down the middle of the road, and ended up in a ditch. We couldn't get it out with the Jeep's power, and when he turned it off, it wouldn't start, but he left it in gear, and after the tow truck got it out, it started right up, and we drove around some more; the only damage was to the rear bumper; the ends were dented in.

General Comments:

This is the ultimate light truck. The tires smoke like nothing, and donuts are simple.

For it being 2 wheel drive, it goes almost any where.
