I've owned mine since it was new, almost 13 years. The only major repair was replacing the transfer case, which probably would have lasted with more regular fluid changes. Been through several fuel pumps and mufflers, and a couple radiators.
Turning radius is my favorite feature, along with the power/accelleration.
Gas mileage has always sucked, which is really my only complaint. The ride is a little rough, but it doesn't bother me...only the passengers as they bop around the cab.
