2nd owner of this jewel, and it has been better than expected. My second Jeep, and would hate to do without one now. Rock solid on every kind of road (or lack thereof), fantastic in snow, great on rocky roads. 15-20 mpg and plenty of power from the V8 when you need to kick it. Very low maintenance. Hope that gas prices don't make them disappear completely, because Colorado winters and mountain roads need that kind of solid, dependable 4WD vehicle for the sake of safety (fun is nice, too!).
Power, sure-footed in snow (BFG T/As help), styling, dependability, durability.
Rear main seal (tends to seep on all 4.0L and 5.2L engines).
