95 4.0 w 193k, goin on 194. Leaky transmission pan, either leaks or burns about a quart of oil every 2-3 months, not sure. Also I think the front differential is leaking where it connects to the driveshaft, and possibly my transfer case again. When I get back from college this summer, hopefully I can get it all sorted out...but nothing else major (knock on wood!)

96 4.0 laredo 170000. rusty unibody is the main issue. Leaky valve cover, front wheel bearing shot. (had to beat on it to replace ujoint) so the abs started going crazy. Pulled the fuse and no issues with it since. Besides the abs light and that just gives the jeep charisma.

205,354 tranny started acting up a little bit lately, quick up shifting then back down again at part throttle and feels like its "unlocking" when coasting. I can take off and be moving then let off and a few seconds later its like its releasing. Hoping a new governor sensor and solenoid will fix it.

231K, (4.0)....headliner ( one day ...fairly soon), rear main leak, ( in the next 2 months), valve cover leak ( I already have the gasket), I dont like my shocks, ( maybe next month), pittman arm seal leak ( I have the new seals in hand right now), might need a new front hub soon ( I have new ones in the back of the Jeep already) and the fuel tank is down to 1/4 tank. ( dreading that fill up tomorrow). Just got done with new tires, new trackbar, swaybar bushings and end links...so now it doesnt make any noise and the front end feels good and tight.

98' laredo 4.0 with 165,000

rear diff leaks (slow)
rear diff issues (i think bearings)
TC leaks (also very slow)
CA bushings are shot
shocks are shot
afew interior panels missing clips and screws (SO ANNOYING! IDK WTF THE PO DID BUY THERE ARE SCREWS MISSING EVERYWHERE )
rear wiper motor went last week

i feel like im missing stuff... oh well i guess.
working a minimum wage job kind of makes it difficult to make repair (or mod it)
little by little i guess

this guy ran 40's. a lot of custom work but its definitely possible. i think hes only at around 5.5" of lift too

94' 5.2 with 171k. Have a bad VC, some broken interior plastics, need a new driver side door. Lost my front bumper cover and crushed the driver's side front fender in New Mexico desert snow storm when a big rig clipped my front bumper, spun me out and slid into a ditch and rolled the ZJ onto the driver's side. It also popped my 31s off bead. Had a tow truck flip us upright, jacked it up and re-inflated the tires. Drove home (around 600 miles) immediately afterwards. There are a few other small issues I will eventually take care of. Engine is still running strong though. No problems there so far...#knockonwood#

94 4.0 ZJ It has 292 000 Kilometers on it. So that is around the 180 K mile mark

As far as I know it is original engine and tranny, but I only bought it as a winter toy / something to get me through storm weather and cold in Canada here, so I have only driven it the last 15 K of its life.

It has the basic thing of the driver window wire is cracked right where the boot meets the door and I haven't fixed that yet since I don't really need it down much in winter other than having to open doors at a drive thru

Other then that the tranny loses some fluid right now. I will look at that some time soon. it would be too much if I drove it all the time to handle, but for winter driving I top it up a bottle or 2 through a winter.

Front UJoints are going to need repair

Other then that it is a great jeep and I love it. The other day I had to move it in the yard from where I parked it, and I had to take the jeep for a small spin around our town because I miss driving it so much
