[QUOTE=tjkj2002;14427699]And then you bought a JK
Call me a liar if it makes you feel better. My dad's and my KJ received perfect maintenance. So far, my JK has been flawless for 15k hard miles.
My sport went through two front diffs, two pinion seals and I gave up and simply added grease when the 3rd one was leaking, one rear end, one transfer case, and AC, an idler pulley, an alternator, and the valve guide seals were leaking at 60k.
My dad's Limited went through a transfer case, a pinion seal, AC, it started burning oil at 70k, and the tranny was starting to shift poorly when he dumped it.
My buddy's was on its third rear end and second transmission when his AC crapped at 70k and he gave up.
But then, maybe everyone I ever knew that owned a KJ was just unlucky.
I was just offering experience to the OP who probably will not get an unbiased opinion of the KJ here. When I owned one, I used to defend the KJ too because it made me feel better about owning it.
