I love my Jeep. Easy to work on; all you really need is a basic socket set. My first motor had 269,000 miles and probably would have gone longer had I paid attention to the plastic clamp at the top of the throttle body (broke and was taking in lot of dirt). Had the motor, transmission, & transfer case out, in and running a weekend. Theres a lot to be said for simplicity - I love it. What other car can you power wash the inside, it you want luxury, soft ride go buy a car
its simplicity, lose the top and the door in seconds, easy to fix and parts are cheap. Engine and transmission $700 (just got to look for the deals).
Quit trying to soccermomerize this car - it's a Jeep plain and simple,
