I bought this in 2002 for $15,000. It had 74,000 miles and had been traded to a Lexus dealership. I've driven it all over the USA in all kinds of weather, and other than regular maintenance, it hasn't needed a thing. It now has 181,000 miles and runs like new. It has hauled and pulled all kinds of stuff, and been driven hard - and should have plenty of miles left. Gas mileage is awful, but what do you expect? If I need to get there safely and reliably, no matter what nature cares to throw at me, this is what I drive. It's seen snowstorms, ice, hail and hurricanes. Driveshaft has 6 grease fittings. Make sure you or someone lubricates them with a grease gun at least every other oil change.
Reliability and durability in the extreme. Jeeps wish they were half this good.
