216xxx miles, needs an engine rebuild, CKS, possibly ball joint or tre on pass side, and a new muffler to replace my current one which has a hole in it. But, everything is currently on hold, as the Jeep has lived up to its name...

Both front seats need reupholstered and motor work as well as seat heaters repaired.

Anti-sway bar endlinks.
Shocks.
RF wheel bearing.
RF CV joint.
Set RF spring back in its bucket.

97 4.0 at 245,000 miles.

PCM connector failure (hard starts, occasional stumbles)
Blown muffler (due to the stumbling)
Driver door latch ripped out of sheet metal
Lock actuators broken, some interior stuff (sagging headliner, cracked plastic, etc)

Not too bad actually.

Lemme see... 230k. Just rebuilt the 4.0 about 800 miles ago. Rebuilt the trans about a year ago.

Needs a passenger side tie rod end (I have the V8 steering linkage), pinion bearings, front driveshaft, a new header panel, tailgate latch needs to be welded, need a muffler (mine's crushed), and a windshield. It could use a paint job, but I want to paint it OD Green, and it would just get screwed up playing in the mud.
