i bought my jeep with 200k miles and minor suspension problems. engine runs strong. four-wheel drive works great, i have towed people out of deep trails idling along in four-high. I've also become accustomed to the term 'its a jeep thing' it performs better than a car in that shape should. after some scheduled maintenance along with suspension work it drives solid as a rock. jeep won me over.
4x4 quadratrack never gotten it stuck yet with stock 16" rims and 22" street tires
when i say 'its a jeep thing' i refer to just about every gasket in it aside from the headgasket
