I have owned by Jimmy since 2001 and I have had little issues, but for what I have done it to the thing it is quite expectable. The first thing I had to check out was the 4 wheel drive, so I hit the trails. By the end of the day I had it up to the frame in mud, without getting stuck, and all 4 wheels off the ground. I can deal with the minor repair (I love working on my truck), just need to find a good lift kit and then I off to the mud again. My overall view is play hard and things will break. Shut up fix the problem then it's time to play again. My wiper did the I have a mind of my owe I change the cabling and it is good to go. Need new mirrors and the drivers window gets stuck.
4x4ing and when I get a lift kit the mud will get deeper.
Lift kit and general maintenance. Upgrade the air intake and remember your every 30t mile checks. Take care of the car and the car will take care of you. A quote from the grandfather and it has not let me down yet.
