Are the repairs on a jeep reasonably priced, I know that might seem like a silly question but what I mean is, if I were to buy a Lexus, Id know that I'm going to spend a fortune on a 150k mile service. Does the mechanic see you roll up in a jeep and get dollar signs in his eyes?

Also, judging by the posts on some other boards, it's seems a lot of people do work on their own,
And, I think I could do some upkeep. Is system pretty simple, like.. A ford? I've done a few things on an old f150 I had as a teenager. And i really enjoyed it.
If you like the whole idea of doing it your self it can be addicting my wife gets mad cuz i will lay under or hover over the hood of my jeep all night until day break but when im done it looks factory clean if i replace something i will work on the area the part goes in or on i take a rust bit for the drill and polish it up and clean it before i reassemble it my transmission pan had some rust spots on it so when i serviced my tranny hit the pan with a rust removing drill bit sand it clean it then prime it now i just have to find the problem with the tranny thought about tightening the bands in it but im just affraid ill mess it up specialy since i have no torque wrench to tighten it to factory specs
