When all the cast/metal parts on the underside look like they've been on the ocean floor and you keep expecting to see barnacles growing on them. But when people look at the topside they say, "It looks like it's in really good condition!".

Mine didn't work at all after I bought my Jeep, so I grabbed a JY unit, lo and behold it worked. 2 days later I got a coolant sensor warning, replaced sensor, no fix. Discovered common issue with sensor warning.
Broke transfer case, replaced transfer case. For a week no coolant sensor warning.....WTF?
Just went I started to get used to no warning. beep beep beep.......aaaaaaarrrrgggghhhhhh!!

This may be a duplicate, but when something starts working as it should and you assume that means something wrong. Mine shifted out of overdrive for once when I was trying to pass someone, and the first thing I did was check my ATF.

When you find a piece of black electrical tape blends right in when covering up the abs idiot light which always stares you in the face.

Finally replaced the left rear abs wheel speed sensor but the tape worked great for months on end.
