Purchased my Jeep new. Change the oil every 3 thousand miles using Mobil 1. At 13 thousand miles under warranty head gasket replaced, known issue for some serial numbers. At 161 thousand still has original transmission, ball joints, tie rods, brake parts. Replaced radiator twice until I got smart and got brass tanks and brass core radiator. I have replaced AC expansion valve, starter and steering column. Have broken drivers seat but I am a big ole boy also. Do your maintenance, it pays. I would take this vehicle any where from coast to coast or border to border and not think twice or worry.
Go anywhere, paint looks good, alloy wheels, will tow 5000 lbs with out overheating. Great AC, heat, love unique oem stereo AM radio.
Noisy, never use plastic on a radiator neck overflow tube, if that little part fails you have to replace entire radiator. Longer lasting crimps on all rubber hose connections, steering, tranny, AC.
