I love my Jeep!
Purchase this Jeep TJ in 1999, and to date have replaced the radiator, power steering pump, exhaust, brakes, and tires.
Side mirrors paint peeling as reported by others, rot hole on topside of drivers side front fender. Exhaust manifold cracked back in 2003, I replaced the entire exhaust system with a Borla stainless steel. Was pricey, but no more rusting out.
Had the cat converter replaced under warranty back in 2002.
I have been snowplowing with this jeep since I bought it. At the time I had it set up with a brand new Meyer 6 1/2 foot plow that I'm still using today. I used to plow 20 to 40 residential driveways, but in the past few years have cut that number back to about a dozen due to my primary job.
I love my Jeep. It needs a few things right now such as the side mirrors need to be painted, and the front fender needs repair or replacing due to a rust/rot hole on the top. Recently replaced the original soft top with a Best Top.
My Jeep currently has 93,000 miles and I'm hoping to drive it until 200,000 or more. Did I mention that I love my Jeep??? :-D.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
